The folks in charge of the Shadowhunters Twitter account casually posted on Wednesday that there would be a big surprise heading our way the following morning (Thursday October 8th). Come that morning, us Mortal Instruments fans got our answer. And boy was it a pleasant surprise.

Those fans that added the newly-created Shadowhunters Snapchat account, TVShadowhunters, were shown the first teaser trailer for the show in various 10 second intervals.

The teaser has also been posted online, so you all can watch it over and over again until the 2016 premiere.

The trailer itself doesn’t show any actual footage from future episodes. Instead, it beautifully gives us a glimpse of the characters and Clary’s introduction to the demon side of the world.

I think we can all agree that the cinematography and sets are stunning. What do you guys think?

Shadowhunters officially airs in January 2016 under ABC Family’s new name: Freeform.
