One more week, Shadowhunters fans!

This exciting new series, based on the best-selling Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare, bursts onto our screens on January 12th with the premiere episode “The Mortal Cup.”

With Freeform (formerly ABC Family) teasing in its latest loglines for the show that “one woman will realize how dark the city can really be when she learns the truth about her past” there really is no reason not to miss out on this one.

Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend, Simon, in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother.

Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke, who knows more than he is letting on, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane, who could hold the key to unlocking Clary’s past.

Shadowhunters premieres Tuesday, January 12 at 9:00 – 10:00 p.m., EST/PST (ABC Family is becoming Freeform on January 12, 2016.) but if you really can’t wait that long we’ve got 3 new sneak peek clips to share from the premiere episode.
