It’s looking even more likely that Marvel’s Inhumans TV show will be cancelled by ABC. Above and beyond floundering in the bottom of the ratings’ barrel, it seems like word of the cancellation could be leaking to the larger ABC-Marvel television family. During last weekend’s Heroes and Villains Fan Fest San Jose panel, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD star Ming-Na reportedly almost used the word “cancelled,” when answering a fan’s question about potential crossovers between the ABC TV series.
An ABC series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 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 Inhumans’ Royal Family. The sci-fi action drama centers on the mysterious Black Bolt (Mount), King of the Inhumans, and the Royal Family. Following a coup, they must reunite and try to save themselves and the world.
Will Marvel’s Inhumans Be Cancelled by ABC?
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD star Ming-Na Wen may have just accidentally let slip the fate of ABC’s other Marvel Cinematic Universe series, Marvel’s Inhumans.
During her panel at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest San Jose, Ming-Na Wen attempted to multitask by calling former Agents of SHIELD co-star Brett Dalton (Grant Ward) at the same time that she was answering fan questions. The question happened to be about the possibility of a crossover between Agents of SHIELD and Marvel’s Inhumans.
“I think that show got-” Wen said and then stopped short before laughing and admitting that, “Maybe I can’t multitask.”
She stopped before saying the keyword, but if you watch the video above it definitely sounds like was about to say that Inhumans was canceled. That news probably wouldn’t surprise anyone. Its first season did poorly as an IMAX event, was bashed by critics and fans, and failed to generate much in the way of ratings for ABC.
Here’s the video, referenced in the above report.

Saving a freshman series from cancellation, when its numbers are that low, would be an inhuman feat, to say the least. When we hear more on a Marvel’s Inhumans cancellation or renewal, we’ll let you know.
