Marvel's Inhumans officially canceled

Marvel's Inhumans is officially no more. According to Variety, ABC has pulled the plug on Inhumans after one awfully reviewed first season.

The Inhumans series debuted on ABC in the fall, but the network promoted it beforehand by releasing the first two episodes in IMAX theaters. The series followed the powerful royal family of Attilan after they are splintered by a military coup. This forces Black Bolt (Anson Mount), the silent king, to take the family on the run to Hawaii, where their interactions with humanity could not only save them but the whole world.

The series featured an extensive ensemble cast, including Serinda Swan as Black Bolt's wife Medusa and Iwan Rheon as his villainous brother Maximus. Isabelle Cornish, Eme Ikwauakor, Ken Leung, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores, Ellen Woglom, and Henry Ian Cusick also starred in the series, which came from Iron Fist's Scott Buck. The series was panned by critics, earning a depressing 10 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. However, some fans enjoyed it, making a petition for it to earn a second season.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey hinted all the way back in January that the show would not get a second season, saying at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour that the series "didn't perform for us at the level that we would have wanted." The network has yet to make a decision on their other Marvel show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Inhumans was one of four freshmen dramas canceled by ABC Friday. The network also pulled the plug on Deception, starring Jack Cutmore-Scott as a famed magician who helps the FBI with their most difficult cases; Kevin (Probably) Saves the World, starring Jason Ritter as a man tasked with a mission to save the world; and The Crossing, starring Steve Zahn as a sheriff who has to figure out a way to deal with an influx of refugees in his small fishing town.

ABC's returning drama series include For the People, Station 19, How To Get Away With Murder, Grey's Anatomy, and The Good Doctor. On the comedy side, they have renewed Black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, American Housewife, Splitting Up Together, Speechless, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, and Roseanne. Previously canceled series include Designated Survivor, Quantico, Alex, Inc., The Middle, Scandal, Once Upon a Time, The Mayor, Somewhere Between, and Ten Days in the Valley.
