8 New Television Series Based on Your Favorite YA Books
Seeing your favorite books get adapted to TV shows is one of the most exciting things ever. On top of getting to watch your favorite scenes unfold on screen, you also get to see which actors will be playing your favorite characters, which is pretty awesome. And so far, we’ve already been gifted with gems like Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries. But now, we’ve got a whole new set of YA-inspired shows to get excited about!
Some of these shows, like Shadowhunters and The 100, have already premiered, while a few of them are still in the works. But that didn’t stop us from marking our calendars! Check out which new (and upcoming) shows are actually based on your favorite YA books:
BASED ON: The Mortal Instruments series by Cassie Clare
We'll admit that this series is totally one of our all-time faves. Just moments after Clary Fray sees a Shadowhunter for the first time, she's pulled into a world of magic and demons. Her mom suddenly disappears, and then she finds herself getting attacked out of the blue by a demon. With the help of Shadowhunters, she starts to learn the truth about her past and understand that she's no ordinary mundane.
Shadowhunters premiered on Freeform in January and has already been renewed for a second season.
