ABC Officially Cancels Marvel’s Inhumans

Ten Days in the Valley won’t get a Season 2 either.

Marvel’s Inhumans won’t see a second season.

As reported by TVLine, ABC has canceled the show after just one season, which spanned a total of eight episodes. For the majority of its run, Marvel’s Inhumans averaged a 0.6 rating and viewer count of 2.65 million. For its final two episodes, the show dropped to a 0.5 rating and 1.95 million viewers.

The cancelation of Marvel’s Inhumans isn’t all that surprising given comments from ABC about the show’s future earlier this year. During the Television Critics Association press tour, ABC’s Channing Dungey said the series’ viewer numbers turned out to be “less exciting for us than we hoped they would be.”

The first two episodes Marvel’s Inhumans were shown in IMAX theaters last September, and the reception was less than stellar. IMAX CEO Rich Gelfond attributed its underwhelming performance to a “misalignment of customer expectations.”

In addition to Marvel’s Inhumans, ABC has canceled several other shows, including Designated Survivor, Quantico, Ten Days in the Valley, Deception, The Crossing, and Alex, Inc.
