Is everyone as excited as I am to see ABC Family’s Shadowhunters?
Based on Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments Series, the show follows Clarissa “Clary” Fray as she finds herself entangled in the supernatural world of the Shadowhunters, beings with angelic blood as they battle demons and other creatures who seek to harm mundane humans.
Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Films with McG and Ed Decter serving as executive producers.

How do you feel about the casting? Who do you want to play Magnus and Jocelyn? Comment below and let us know!
Well, whoever plays Magnus, Jocelyn, or Valentine, I hope they’ll do Cassandra Clare’s characters justice! Which I’m sure they will. McG hasn’t let us down so far!
Although, I’d like to say, Godfrey Gao will always be Magnus Bane to me, and I’ll miss him.
Magnus should be played by Godfrey Gao
who played Malfoys dad in harry potter? cause he should play Valentine, yes, Godfrey Gao should be Magnus Bane! and the guy to played Gilles in Buffy The Vampire Slayer should be Hodge Starkweather.
For Magnus I say Godfrey Gao. He’ll always be Magnus in my heart. For Valentine I think Aaron Taylor Johnson, and for Jocelyn I think Lena Headey fits well.
And Conor McLain as Sebastian too
