Can we chalk this up to man’s inhumanity to man? ABC has cancelled Marvel’s Inhumans TV show after just one season. The sci-fi series, which had a disappointing launch in IMAX theatres in September of 2017, never really caught on — at least in Nielsen households. The cancellation has been widely assumed to be all but confirmed for months.
An ABC superhero drama, Marvel’s Inhumans stars Anson Mount, Iwan Rheon, Serinda Swan, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Ken Leung, Ellen Woglom, Sonya Balmores, and Mike Moh. Created by Scott Buck and based on the Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, Marvel’s Inhumans explores the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt (Mount), King of the Inhumans. After a coup separates them, they must reunite and try to save themselves and the earth.
News of the Marvel’s Inhumans cancellation has been percolating for a while. On December 5th, we reported Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD star Ming-Na almost used the word “cancelled,” when answering a fan’s question about potential crossovers between the ABC TV series during a panel.
On January 10th of this year, we also reported that ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey was not all that optimistic about Marvel’s Inhumans‘ chance of survival, during the 2018 TCA winter press tour. A couple of weeks later, Disney-ABC removed the series from its press site, but later restored it.
