Deadline reports today that Marvel’s Inhumans will not be renewed for a second season.
According to Deadline, this announcement was not a surprise.
The show premiered to modest ratings on ABC following its two-episode debut in Imax theaters two weeks before its linear premiere, and it never picked up steam. Box office receipts of $3.5 million disappointed all involved, and the show drew negative reviews from critics.
Marvel’s Inhumans was the second Marvel television adaption that was picked up by ABC, with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as the first. A synopsis of Inhumans is provided below.
Marvel’s Inhumans explored the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt (Anson Mount), the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans. After the family is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever.
