Marvel’s Inhumans TV Series Premiere Date Revealed

Hot off the heels of the exciting announcement that Marvel is set to bring an Inhumans TV series to ABC, we now know exactly when the show will premiere. A report by THR revealed that following a two week theatrical run of the first two episodes in Imax cinemas, the series will then debut on ABC, Tuesday 26th September 2017.

The report also contained several other interesting snippets of information. The series is set to run for eight consecutive episodes, bar any unforeseen circumstances, placing the finale on Tuesday November 14th, 2017. That’s a fairly short order then, especially when compared to Agents of Shield’s 22 episode season order, but it gives ABC a chance to test the waters. As awesome as Agents of Shield is, it hasn’t done as well for ABC as they hoped, so the eight episode season order for The Inhumans minimises some of the risk.

What’s most intriguing about the premiere date for The Inhumans is not so much the date, but the actual day. Agents of Shield currently airs Tuesdays on ABC, and has done so for its entire run, so what does this mean for the show? The move to a later timeslot for Agents of Shield has managed to improve the show even more, and it seems to be getting some pretty solid ratings, especially when factoring in those who watch it later through recordings and catch up. The ratings increase with catch up has been huge this season, so hopefully ABC will realise people just don’t watch TV the same way anymore and consider this in their decision to renew the show. If the show is indeed renewed for Season 5 then, it’s possible it could move to a different night, similar to what The CW does with its superhero shows. Conversely, Agents of Shield could stay right where it is, and ABC could introduce a two hour Marvel block for Tuesday nights. It does a similar thing with its comedies on Wednesdays, but so long as Agents of Shield is still around fans likely won’t mind which day it airs.

Marvel’s The Inhumans premieres Tuesday, 26th September 2017 on ABC.


Joe can’t wait for The Inhumans to air, but that hasn’t stopped his concerns about what this means for Agents of Shield. To see how much he loves that show and all things Marvel, check him out @resonantrevs on Twitter.
