Fans, contain yourself: Cassandra Clare's best-selling YA series "The Mortal Instruments" is officially coming to your TV screens.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, after "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" -- the first installment of what was planned to be a multi-part film adaptation of the series -- tanked at the box office, Constantin Film, the production company in control of the franchise rights, has decided to change directions.

Ed Decter, a writer and producer who has previously worked on "Helix," "In Plain Sight" and "The Client List" will serve as showrunner to the new high-end drama series.

“It actually makes sense to do (the novels) as a TV series,” Constantin film and TV head Martin Moszkowicz told the Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
