Book News | The Mortal Instruments TV Show + Jace Casting

I wasn’t planning on posting today, but this recent news I found out about compels me to. If you haven’t guessed from the title of this post, the recent news in question is about The Mortal Instruments TV show!

Yep, you heard me!

Cassandra Clare’s worldwide best-selling YA series The Mortal Instruments has been picked up by ABC Family to be turned into a TV show.

Totally me at this moment! 🙂

Since the City of Bones movie was a disappointment in comparison with the book, I am super excited to see how the producers will be filming the show (which is being named ‘Shadowhunters’). I mean, the movie was okay, but it didn’t do the book justice at all.

There has not been much casting information yet except for the male lead of Jace Wayland: it will be played by Dominic Sherwood, previously seen in the film production of Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters based on the book by Richelle Mead. Previous Mortal Instruments stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower do not seem to be returning for the TV show, presumedly because ‘Shadowhunters’ is to have a clean slate and distance itself a bit from the box-office flop movie released in 2013.

For more information about production, etc. press HERE.

I for one, am looking forward to seeing how the show will hit off! I really hope this time the producers will stick more to the books! I’m fine with a bit of tweaking here and there, but to change it up a lot results in a flop, and I do hope they realize that.

So, are you excited for this show, or do you think it’s not worth your time? What do you think about Dominic Sherwood playing Jace? Comment below! I’d love to hear from you. ❤

  1. I’m glad that they’re titling it Shadowhunters because then, it’s not limited to just TMI. They might feature TID too or other Cassandra Clare’s future shdowhunter series 😀 So excited for this

    • Yes,I feel the same way! Making the series into a TV show is allowing them to delve into the Shadowhunter world like they wouldn’t be able to in a movie. 😀 Can’t wait to hear more about the casting and premiere! ❤

  2. I was dancing when I first heard the news. This is really, really awsome. And I didn’t like the guy who portrayed Jace in the film but this guy, yuuush is absolutely perfecto. I’m soo excited! 😀

    • I know, so was I! I am over-the-top excited! 😀 As for my thoughts on Dominic Sherwood as Jace, I’m glad you like him, and I suppose he’s okay, however I can’t seem to get the vampire vibe off him or see him completely as Jace. Hopefully my opinion will change when watching the show!
      Can’t wait to see the rest of the cast and hear more of production and stuff! ❤
