"Kill the demons, protect the humans -- you'll get it eventually."
The series premiere of Shadowhunters is almost here, and we can barely contain our excitement! Based on Cassandra Clare’s best-selling Mortal Instruments books, we have a feeling that this action-packed series will eventually eclipse Pretty Little Liars as the best drama on ABC Family -- which will soon be renamed Freeform.
The series' heroine, Clary, played by Katherine McNamara, discovers on her 18th birthday that she’s a human-angel hybrid destined to battle the demons of the shadow world. Luckily, our leading lady will receive some kickass training from fellow Shadowhunters Jace (Dominic Sherwood), Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia), and Alec (Matthew Daddario).
In the newest adrenaline-pumping trailer, above, Clary comes to terms with her demon-hunting destiny -- and you'll want to watch it over and over again.
Shadowhunters premieres Tuesday, Jan. 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform.
