The first two episodes of Marvel’s Inhumans debuted in IMAX theaters at the beginning of this month. And the reviews were mostly negative. I went and thought that it was a decent television series in-line with Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD but it had no business being on the big screen. Since then there have been rumors that the series has already been cancelled for the first episode aired and that ABC is not happy with Marvel TV. Reports yesterday said that Disney forced ABC to renew Agents of SHIELD. How much of all that is true remains to be seen.
The show debuts this Friday on television with the first of 8-episodes from showrunner Scott Buck. The embattled writer is coming off a less than well received season of Marvel’s Iron Fist and before that the also not well reviewed final season of Dexter. Buck spoke with Collider recently and they asked him about a second season and the long term plans for the series.
We know our starting point for Season 2, but we don’t know if there will be a Season 2. Hopefully, there will be a Season 2. If so, we know where we’re gonna start, and we’ll very gratefully gear up and get to work. We generally know where the first three seasons could go. What’s fun about the show is that it will basically always be a show about family, so there’s always going to be places to take these characters.
Marvel’s Inhumans airs on Fridays on ABC.
