Description: The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.
A version of the first two episodes will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks at the beginning of September 2017. ABC plans to then premiere the weekly series in fall, with additional exclusive content that can only be seen on the network. ABC.com

Why Was It Cancelled? This series received an eight-episode order that began with the first two episodes getting an early release in IMAX theaters. But The Inhumans did poorly in that venue and drew plenty of negative buzz (unfairly in my opinion), and the show never managed to find much of an audience when it aired on Friday nights in Fall largely because the fans worked against the show almost from the start. There is still a chance that the Inhuman characters could make an appearance on Agents of SHIELD if that one gets a sixth season renewal, otherwise expect them to fade into the TV wasteland.
