Big news for all The Mortal Instrument fans out there, they are turning it into a TV show, YAY (hopefully it will air in the UK).
So basically, if your not in the know, The Mortal Instruments is a series of six young adult fantasy books (by Cassandra Clare) which was then turned into a film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) and now its a TV series based on the books!!
I haven’t read the books but i have watched the film. At the time, there was a lot of bad reviews for it and it left cinemas quite quickly here in the UK. Going into the cinema with all these bad reviews, i tried not to get my hopes high, but i really really enjoyed it! I though the film was really good, something I’d watch more than once. I scoured the internet for months, hoping for a sequel, but i found nothing. Many of the reviews stated that they thought the film did not do the book justice and many agreed it should have been at TV series instead due to how complex the story line is in the book. I really enjoyed the film and i am looking forward to what the TV series will be like, in the meantime i am going to start reading the books!
The Shadowhunters TV series is said to be based on the books and a sort of reboot of the film, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013). The show has only officially begun filming as of March 2015, so we have a while to wait, but if you haven’t seen the film or read the books then now is the time!
