Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments' Maxim Roy has been cast as the warlock Alice Harlow in Netflix's October Faction television series, according to Deadline (and confirmed by the actor on Twitter). Based on the IDW Publishing comic book series by Steve Niles and Damien Worm, October Faction will be adapted for TV by Krypton showrunner Damian Kindler.

Roy's Alice Harlow character is described by the Hollywood trade as "a powerful warlock and the last of her kind."

"Driven by a profound sense of loss, Alice sets out to destroy those responsible for the genocide against her people, but along the way she uncovers a long-held secret that could shatter the Allan family forever," reads Deadline's description.

In comic books, October Faction centers on the life of a retired monster hunter named Frederick Allan and his family.

In addition to her role in the CW's Shadowhunters, Roy appeared in City's Bad Blood and CBC's Heartland.

No projected premiere date for October Faction has been announced.
