ABC May Have Cancelled Marvel's INHUMANS and The Fans Launch a Petition For Season 2
Spoiler TV noticed that ABC has removed Marvel's Inhumans from their press site, which is leading them and many others to speculate that the series has been canceled. If the series was quietly canceled, I don't think it would surprise anyone.
I tried watching the series, but it just wasn't a very good series. It could have and should have been so much better than what we got. It's a shame that this comic book series and the characters that filled it didn't get the adaptation they deserved.
Regardless of what I think, there are fans that actually did enjoy the show! When they found out that the series was most likely canceled, a group of fans actually launched a petition to renew the series for Season 2. Here’s an excerpt from the campaign’s mission statement:
The show had a decent story while every actor involved gave the best he could. Their performances are noteworthy and every problem about which the people complained was eventually solved or was a major plot point by the finale (Maximus' pure intentions were later revealed to be for his own, the monarch system's flaws were also acknowledged and so on).
For all the haters wanting this to be canceled, they seem to forget as to how Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. improved after the initial episodes and is currently one of the best comic book shows on air.
Further, once gone, these characters will never EVER return and that seems to me like such a waste. Instead, they should give the show another chance, maybe with a shorter run with a higher budget and with maybe a new showrunner as most of the people who hated Iron Fist and Scott Buck just transferred that hate for him on this show as well.
So, in a gist, all I'm saying is we deserve a proper Inhumans show, which the first season was definitely not. Even Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did justice to Inhumans and surely, ABC needs to only give home to Inhumans for a year and then it can move on to the Disney streaming site in 2019.
The petition has reached its goal of 500 supporters, but if the rating on the show sucked ass, 500 people aren't going to save it from being canceled. Maybe now Marvel Studios will get to make their Inhumans movie and actually do it right. Inhumans just goes to show that not everything Marvel touches turns to gold.
