Based on Cassandra Clare’s wildly popular fantasy series The Mortal Instruments, Shadowhunters is an action-packed, romantic ride into the supernatural realm. The Freeform series stars Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, who discovers that her heritage is to fight demons in a world where vampires, werewolves, Nephilim, fairies and warlocks exist. When her mother is kidnapped on her 18th birthday, Clary joins forces with her human best friend Simon and the mysterious demon-hunter Jace to find her. In an age of dying cable, fans definitely want to watch Shadowhunters online.
The fantasy series is a successful part of ABC Family’s transformation into Freeform.
