In news that should not be shocking to anyone that followed the downward spiral that was the series ratings last year, the Inhumans have no future at ABC.
According to Deadline, the network has now officially given word, to what most people had already figured out by their silence on the subject, that Marvel’s Inhumans has been canceled.
Originally set to be part of the Marvel Studios film universe, the Inhumans instead became a television series that premiered on IMAX screens in 2017. After a very modest, and far less than expected with the Marvel name, box office opening in theaters the series failed to find any traction on the network before wrapping an eight-episode first and only season.
The writing not only seemed on the wall after the rating issues but especially when Anson Mount, who played the Inhuman king Black Bolt, was announced to have found a new gig with CBS’s Star Trek Discovery as Captain Christopher Pike in the upcoming second season.
Focusing on the Inhuman royal family, the series also starred Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Ken Leung as Karnak, Ellen Woglom as Louise, Sonya Balmores as Auran and Mike Moh as Triton.
