          Inhumans will be coming to IMAX first at the beginning of September. It will be on ABC itself later on September 29th. This series will be about the royal family of the Inhumans, a Marvel race created by the star-spanning Kree and first appearing in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Fantastic Four.

They have enjoyed a resurgence in comics recently, started with Charles Soule's Inhumans series which came about in the shadow of Infinity. This series added the "Nuhumans," newer Inhumans brought about by a Terrigen bomb detonated by King Black Bolt in an attempt to slay Thanos. It's since been continued with series like Uncanny Inhumans and All-New Inhumans and, most recently, by Royals and Secret Warriors.

The television series will be something of a spin-off of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which was the first part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to add the element of the Inhumans, with Inhuman mainstays Daisy "Quake" Johnson and Yo-Yo as well as the antagonists Lash and Hive.

Marvel had originally promised a full feature film for the Inhumans, but, with this series and some reported behind-the-scenes strife, it is still unconfirmed if that film has been fully cancelled.
