Tomorrow the Shadowhunter fandom begins a new chapter as the production team start principle photography of The Mortal Cup, which is the first episode of the Shadowhunters TV show based on Cassandra Clare’s books The Mortal Instruments.
As the show starts filming tomorrow it has been a very busy week in the build up.

Like I was saying before, tomorrow is pretty big day for the fandom and I want to just take a second to say a massive thank you to the original cast from The Mortal Instruments movie and all the crew that worked on it. I also want to say a huge thank you to the Queen herself, Cassandra Clare, for writing these amazing series that we all love. Thank you thank you thank you.
Welcome to all the new cast and crew, we cannot wait to see all the set photos and costumes and then official pictures, trailers, interviews and the show airing in 2016!
