On Tuesday, during the season premieres of Pretty Little Liars and Stitchers, ABC Family released two “teasers” for Shadowhunters. I put teasers in quotation marks because if you’ve been following Shadowhunters on social media, then you’ve probably seen the pictures in the clips already. Plus, the teasers only make sense to people part of The Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters fandom. I can’t imagine my sister or my mom watching the teasers, understanding what they’re about, and getting hype for the show. These teasers were only for the benefit of the TMI–Shadowhunters fandom and I’m not impressed, but I’ll take it for now.
In more Shadowhunters news, David Castro has been cast to play the part of Raphael. He looks the part so that’s good and I’m glad to see Raphael’s character cast since this character was cut out of the TMI movie. Raphael is needed if all that stuff is going to happen to Simon.
