What? Shadowhunters is based on best-selling author Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, which features six young adult urban fantasy novels that focus on main character Clary Fray. At 18, Clary discovers she has the power to see a secret Shadow world filled with demons and Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. When her mother disappears and Clary is attacked by a demon, a Shadowhunter named Jace comes to her rescue. He looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. And suddenly Clary is pulled into Jace’s dangerous world.

Where? In case you’ve missed it somehow, ABC Family is making the switch over to Freeform with the start of the new year.

When? Make sure your alarm is set for Jan. 12 at 9:00 EST, sharp! And go ahead and set it for every Tuesday after…
