Fans with questions about how ABC's Inhumans series will relate to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the planned Inhumans film may have a few new answers from ABC president Channing Dungey, who believes the two shows can exist side-by-side on the network.
"S.H.I.E.L.D. is in its fourth season and every year, that show has gotten creatively stronger and better," Dungey told The Hollywood Reporter. "It was the first out of the gate for us and with Marvel, and we all have been learning a lot over the four years of that show. What we're doing with IMAX is very different, and I think it's going to feel and look very different from what they're doing on Netflix. Hopefully there's a world for me where those shows exist side-by-side on our air and are two different pieces of music that exist together in the same landscape."
While this doesn't confirm that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be renewed for another season, it does imply that there may be some connection between the two shows afterall, despite ABC's insistence that Inhumans is not a S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off. Likewise, THR has reasserted its claim that the Inhumans TV series does not replace Marvel's planned Inhumans movie, which it says will continue as planned.
Inhumans premieres in IMAX theaters on September 4, before moving to ABC later in the fall.
