By now you're aware that ABC Family are developing and currently filming the gem that is "Shadowhunters". Based upon the series of books by Cassandra Clare, and a re-boot of sorts of the 2013 movie, news for "Shadowhunters" is streaming in by the bucket load. And luckily for Shadowhunter Fans, I have a quick little round-up of things you might' have missed!

"Beaver Falls" & "Being Human" alumni, Jon Cor, joins the cast as Hodge Starkweather - a former member of 'The Circle' and mentor to Lightwood siblings, Izzy and Alec. The actor joins the cast of the upcoming show in a main role.

Official Teaser + TV Spot & Message from Clary herself, Kate McNamara!

A few days ago, ABC Family premiered a Teaser for the upcoming show, in between 'Pretty Little Liars' and 'Stitchers". As the show is still currently shooting, we can't expect any swoon-worthy, fangirl-esque footage just yet, but it does give us an idea of the vibe for the new show.

Whilst it's obvious from the set photo's we've seen so far that the show is going down the "dark" route, this teaser, with it's grey colouring, shows us that the show might be a little lighter, perhaps featuring elements of humour so that it's not all doom and gloom. Cue Sassy Jace!

Also released, was this video featuring pictures of the new cast on set, with a message from Kate McNamara!
