EXCLUSIVE: ABC has cancelled Marvel’s Inhumans already. The network has decided not to move forward with a second season of the superhero drama.
The axe falls ahead of the drama’s primetime premiere, with the network advising viewers to see “the COMPLETE series” from Sept. 29, rather than the ‘first season’.
A RenewCancelTV source further confirms that any Season 2 plans have already been cancelled.
ABC has already given up on the limited series, which sent early alarm bells ringing after it was poorly received upon its IMAX release. To watch other programs on ABC without cable checkout our streaming guide.
And yet I’m sure they’ll end this “complete series” on some kind of a cliffhanger or twist. They ALWAYS do. Cliffhanger season finales are now absolutely 100% required.
You know what ABC stands for, don’t you? Already Been Canceled
CBS – Canceled By Sundown
NBC – Nothing But Cancelations
Fox – F*** Over eXtreme
CW – Can’t Win
SyFy – So Yeah, F*** You
You are a regular ACRONYM savant there ace! LOL So try watching “The Expanse” on SyFy as it is the best new series going and it is going into it’s 3rd season.
It’s articles like this, that lead to perfectly good series never having a chance. Not saying this is great. But if you read up on it, they wanted to promote this event series in a different way(it’s 8 episodes). Not to mention the whole thing is done. So they could release this way. Dumb review.
ABC’s marketing it as “COMPLETE SERIES” (see the poster above). That’s not the reviewers fault, and it certainly suggests to me that the whole thing is done after one (really short) season. If that’s not what ABC means, then they need to get a new marketing department that understands English.
I watched the first two episodes, and have to say, it deserves to be cancelled. Everyone was either a dick, a moron, or, in most cases, both. There were absolutely no sympathetic characters. The whole “rule because of genetic superiority” thing was incredibly heavy-handed, in fact most everything was, there was no subtly whatsoever (at one point there’s a long shot of a bunch of police beating on a tased, handcuffed, docile alien with their batons. Of course, he was white, so I suppose that’s ok (yes, that’s sarcasm)). It was one of the worst shows I’ve seen in a while, even the terrible Room 104 has it beat, easily. Good riddance!

In my view, there are “sympathetic characters”. The bigger point though is such is not required to enjoy a show. Scripts & acting are very good. It’s dramatic, interesting, has hot babes & nice special effects.
weak writing, campy special effects and no real story to bite into so you must work for ABC or something ?? They do a great job with Agents of Shield so why let this fart out of the studio and embarrass themselves ?? W T F ABC W T F ?
take some ritalin and then stfu, noone care about you retarded adhd kids that have 0 attention span
noone give a shiot of special effects, inhumans have good actors and was 10 billion times better than the Anti Trump tv series called The Gift, so stupid where they tried to hide the fact that they pretended that Trump was government hunting x-men who were poor mexicans….
so stupid political show only made for the brain dead that cant see the obvious political brainwashing
Tv shows are becoming agnda themed and it’s going to be the common way to influence viewers..most of these hollywodd writers are liberals and they realise they’ve lost their influence in the political arena..so they’re taking it to the screen and we’re ot likely to see any tv shows in the future that are not heavily laced with anti trump, liberal,gay acceptance and socialist agenda…this includes the myth that at least every other person is dating or marrying someone else of a different race..The writers have become pushers of Agenda and have no intention to write solely based for entertainmant purposes..Hollywood has gone political(socialist) and we’ll see more and more Agenda themed tv as time goes on..after all,2020 is coming up and they need the votes to swing their direction.That’s what Hollywood and writing is all about now..Whetehr it be movies ,tv or Music..It’s time to cut the cord,enjoy the older comedeies of yesteryear(King Of Queens,Home Improvement,etc) or tolerate agenda programming for the next who knows how long..Modern Family is an example of A hard wired agenda themed tv program ,but it has such good writers that the show is tolerable and still entertaining..or it was i mean..i lost interest and stopped watching early in the series run actually…If it hadn’t been for the constant push of liberal agenda i would have continued watching..anyways..i hate the fact that so many good shows are being canceled..most i believe are being canceled justly..but not all.
I laughed when I saw this article. I decided that after I attempted to watch the first episode, it wasn’t watch-worthy. I missed the first 10 minutes of it, but nothing made me want to find out what happened, if anything. I follow Marvel series, but I’m not impressed or intrigued by this one. The Gifted, on FOX, is WAAAAYYY better. It stems from the X-Men Universe.
The Gifted….REALLY ? That steaming pile of political garbage is VERY weak and will not make it to a second season either. Go watch Legion if you want to be entertained! Hell, even The Runaways was better than The Gifted ..come on you have got to be kidding with that crap!
I like the inhumans. Somethings needed to be fixed but that is what a first season is for.
Jim McMunn says
Way too early cancelation. Just because some audiences didn’t care for it, doesn’t mean others wouldn’t..
Norma Lynn says
The Inhumans had great potential, and great actors to work with the show is in need of better direction and writers, although there were really good moments, we needed more and Black Bolt needed more real leadership opportunities so we could feel more attached and attracted to him and we needed it sooner rather then later…too late…I will miss this “missed” opportunity.
Rebecca Henderson says
Really sad & disappointed. I enjoyed this show quite a bit.
I LIKED IT, DIFFERENT, SAD TO SEE IT GO ALONG WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER REALLY GOOD SHOWS THAT SHOULDN’T BE CANCELLED BUT ARE. YET OF COURSE THEY LEAVE ALL THE CRAP SHOWS ON THAT I CAN’T STAND.
I guess if ur not into comics u wouldn’t give it a chance but i liked it.. I think they could’ve had a longer season n a better storyline but Gotham’s first 3 seasons were horrible. it’s just now getting interesting. I think inhumans had a lot of potential once u add in new villains n we get to see some action. I’m disappointed..
