Netflix Acquires “Shadowhunters” For Overseas

Netflix has picked up global rights, excluding the U.S., to the upcoming “Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments” TV series which will launch on U.S. broadcaster ABC Family (which will rebrand as Freeform at the same time).

The first episode will launch globally on January 13th, the day after the U.S. launch, with subsequent episodes releasing weekly on the streaming service. Sadly U.S. Netflix will not carry the series at this point.

A TV adaptation spinoff of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling book series “The Mortal Instruments,” the new series follows a young woman (Katherine McNamara) who leans she comes from a long line of angel-blooded humans who fight to protect us all from demons.
