After one season as reported by Deadline, Marvel’s Inhumans has now ceased to exist on the ABC network. That’s right, after one atrocious season of episodes, one of the worst small screen adaptations from the Marvel comic book universe (next to Iron Fist) has passed on to join the ranks of TV shows that have come and gone. In this case, the series never had the opportunity to gain the traction from fans and critics to merit a sophomore season, and rather than give it another shot — like ABC did with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. the plug was pulled quickly on this show.
The pilot episode premiered in IMAX theaters nationwide with a disappointing $3.5 million made at the box office and was slaughtered by critics with a 10% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Marvel’s Inhumans starred Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Serinda Swan as Medusa, 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.
The series was executive produced by Scott Buck, along with Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory, with Buck serving as showrunner. Roel Reiné directed the first two episodes. This series was a Marvel and Imax project and was co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC.
So long Inhumans.
