It looks like Agents of Shield is getting a spin-off show after all. Last season we heard that ‘Marvel’s Most Wanted’ was canned by ABC, and it looked like there were not going to be any new Marvel TV series on the horizon. But, now, ‘The Inhumans‘ are coming to ABC, and we may just be getting costumed hero’s in the Marvel Universe on the small screen. Get the latest details below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP.
The new series will premiere in IMAX commercial theaters, marking the first time a live-action TV series has debuted in such a format. The first two episodes of the ABC series, which is set to arrive in fall of 2017 under the title Marvel’s The Inhumans, will run worldwide exclusively in IMAX for two weeks for the beginning of September 2017. ABC will the premiere the series in a weekly format.
ABC, IMAX, and Marvel Television will work together to create a joint marketing and promotion plan for the series — making it the closest thing to an Inhumans movie, considering the IMAX release format, we will see.
“This unprecedented alliance represents a bold, innovative approach to launching great TV content for a worldwide audience,” said Ben Sherwood, co-chairman, Disney Media Networks and president, Disney|ABC Television Group. “It highlights Disney|ABC’s unrelenting commitment to finding new and creative ways to showcasing our very best programming and increasing global engagement and reach.”

We are confident our exhibition partners will be excited to work with us on this innovative launch of a series across the IMAX network.”
