Deadline has revealed the news that The Mortal Instruments TV show that was announced a few days ago will be 1 hour long episodes and will re-boot the series from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. This would mean that viewers will not be expected to have seen the 2013 film before watching the show.
The series will reboot the chronicle of the Shadowhunters led by Clary Fray and Jace Wayland in one-hour episodes beginning with the first book, City Of Bones, and expanding into later books as the series progresses.
Robert Kulzer, who was a producer on the City of Bones film, had a few words to add about Ed Decter who will write and executive produce the series:
“Ed Decter brings a tremendous track record to the table,” said Robert Kulzer, co-president of Constantin Film in LA and one of the original film’s producers. “As a showrunner we wanted someone who shares our passion and love for these characters and stories, and Ed has a remarkable ability to form narratives.”
We still have no news on cast, how many episodes a series, and when and where it will air, however I am sure we will get more information soon.
