For the uninitiated, Shadowhunters revolves around Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara), a young woman who discovers she's secretly a human-angel hybrid who hunts down demons — aka a Shadowhunter.

So naturally, the show has killer special effects.

And super-cute guys.

Not to mention a seriously badass supernatural fight club.

You sold?

Shadowhunters is coming to ABC Family in 2016. A precise premiere date has not yet been announced.
