Congratulations, Cassandra Clare fans – the Mortal Instruments series is hitting the small screen as a TV drama.

After Mortal Instruments: City of Bones made a lot of fans happy but didn’t grab quite the Box Office smash Constantin Film were expecting, they’re taking this interesting new direction.

Production is thought to begin in 2015, THR reports. Head of Constantin film Martin Moszkowicz said:

It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series. There was so much from the book that we had to leave out of the Mortal Instruments film.

In the series we’ll be able to go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth.

Constantin are looking closely at TV adaptations for other franchises, including a small screen rework of Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and the beloved Resident Evil series.

Further Mortal Instruments movies may still be in the works, but Constantin look to have shifted their focus onto the TV direction right now.

Do you think that Mortal Instruments will work as a TV show?

Great news for fans of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series! Constantin Film, the production company that controls the rights to Clare’s best-selling YA fantasy franchise and which produced The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film, is relaunching Mortal Instruments as a high-end drama series.

Constantin has hired Ed Decter, whose writer-producer credits include Helix, Unforgettable, In Plain Sight and The Client List, as the showrunner for the Mortal Instruments series. The project is currently in development, with Constantin planning to begin production next year. No broadcast partners are yet attached to the series.

Constantin had originally planned to turn Clare’s fantasy series into a feature film franchise but shelved that idea after the first Mortal Instruments film, starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower, tanked at the box office, earning just $31 million domestically. Constantin, however, insisted it had not abandoned the franchise and planned to return to Mortal Instruments.

“It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series,” Constantin film and TV head Martin Moszkowicz told THR. “There was so much from the book that we had to leave out of the Mortal Instruments film. In the series we’ll be able to go deeper and explore this world in greater detail and depth.”

The Mortal Instruments series is part of a broader strategic shift at Constantin that will see the German-based company move into English-language television series. Moszkowicz said Constantin is looking at possible television adaptations of several of its English-language movie properties, including period serial killer drama Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and the Resident Evil sci-fi horror franchise.

Fans of The Mortal Instrument series will be happy to know that it seems that the sequel movie is still on the cards. Although the first sequel was reported for its low sales, the film continues because of the huge fan base of the novels.

The Official statement from Martin Moszkowicz, the company head of film and TV confirms this:

“The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going. It’s been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other YA titles. We are analyzing what we did wrong with the first film – particularly with the positioning and marketing – and what changes we have to make. We are working with a great group of people to reposition the franchise [for City of Ashes].”

Whilst we can give you the above good news, at this stage we have no release date.

In City of Heavenly Fire, Clary, Jace and co. are on a mission to stop Clary’s evil brother, Sebastian, from destroying the Shadowhunters (Nephilim) who protect the Earth against demons. After a flurry of attacks, New York is deemed no longer safe, and the Shadowhunters retreat to their home country of Idris.

It seems that the only way to stop Sebastian is to use the heavenly fire that is coursing through Jace’s veins, but Jace is struggling to control the fire within him, let alone weaponise it. Sebastian remains fixated on Clary, but it could be Jace who truly understands the madness within his quasi-brother.

The final installment in The Mortal Instruments series builds on Cassandra Clare’s other Shadowhunter novels in a way that will be entirely satisfying to fans and confusing to all others.

There is the sense when reading City of Heavenly Fire that Clare is checking things off a long list. Romantic entanglements? Check. Mentions of incest? Check. Action scenes ending with long speeches? Check, check, check. It isn’t a bad thing — after all, readers of Heavenly Fire will be fans of The Mortal Instruments (or, at least invested enough to want to know how it ends); they will be used to these conventions, and they will like them. After five previous installments, the style and the structure of this story is familiar, like an old friend.

In fitting with these conventions, the final installment of The Mortal Instruments is not short on plot. This vacillates between action and romance; the characters might be battling against the evil Jonathan Morgenstern, but they still find time to worry about their own romantic troubles.

This is a familiar pattern for Mortal Instruments fans, as is the high body count. City of Heavenly Fire opens with a double murder, and the first main character loses their life in the first 150 pages. By the time the novel closes, they are not the only one. Emotional upheaval caused by the death of beloved characters? Check.

That is not to say that Heavenly Fire is not a good book. Clare’s writing is punchy, and she knows her world inside out. The characters speak with believable voices, and the dialogue is enough to make you laugh out loud more than once. The plot rattles on at a page-turning pace, and even though you know to expect twists, the revelations themselves are a surprise.

If there is to be a criticism of City of Heavenly Fire, it is this: the book is too reliant on Clare’s other Shadowhunter works. If readers are not familiar with prequel series The Infernal Devices, or the companion novellas that comprise The Bane Chronicles, they will be left in the dark at many points during the story.

Similarly, too much time is spent introducing the characters that will feature in The Mortal Instruments followup The Dark Artifices. For those who do not plan to read the companion series, these sections offer very little to the narrative and cause the pace to idle frustratingly.

Despite all of this, if this was a checklist, Heavenly Fire would tick every box that a Mortal Instruments fan could want. If you are a fan of Shadowhunters and Downworlders, and can keep your Herondales straight from your Blackthorns, you will find a satisfying conclusion to The Mortal Instruments series in City of Heavenly Fire.
