The Inhumans have been a part of Marvel's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." since the second season and have been slowly establishing storywise in the following seasons, introducing them into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. But now they will be getting their own show, airing on ABC in the fall of next year. This is significant because it will replace "The Inhumans" movie that was supposed to be released in 2018.

This is a joint initiative by ABC, IMAX and Disney, which marks the first time a tv show will premiere this way. The inhumans are some of the most interesting Marvel characters, because of the broad range of powers they have as well how they interact with other characters.

What does this mean for Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D'?

With "The Inhumans" being established in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." already, this begs the question on what the future of the show will be. It is possible, though, that the show will change direction and not focus on inhumans as much, which might be the most likely scenario. It could start focusing more on other storylines from Marvel Comics, such as Secret Warriors, or focus its story on rebuilding S.H.I.E.L.D. and introducing it back into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is also the possibility that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." could be done after its 4th or 5th season to focus on the Inhumans show, which is unlikely, as the show's current season has introduced Ghost Rider and is establishing him into the universe.

The cosmic part of Marvel's universe will expand

The biggest benefit "The Inhumans" TV show will have on the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that it will be expanding into the cosmic part of the universe that began with the "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie and expanded upon in the newly released "Doctor Strange" movie.

"The Inhumans" TV show will introduce the city of Attilan on the moon which is where the Inhumans live, away from the humans but keep watch their world as well the greater cosmic entities like Galactus, the Kree Empire. Here's to hoping the show also introduces the Shi'ar Empire, which is the empire of many galaxies in Marvel Lore.
