During November, it was announced that Marvel’s next TV endeavor will be The Inhumans, and, instead of giving it a traditional release, the first two episodes (about 80 minutes in length) will be shot with IMAX cameras and premiere in IMAX theaters across all territories a couple of weeks before they debut on ABC. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, The Inhumans has both an IMAX and ABC release date locked down.
Buried in an article about how IMAX “renewed its pitch to get into more TV deals” and IMAX CEO Greg Foster is already looking for a second series to roll out in theaters is important information about the show. Reportedly, The Inhumans will make its IMAX debut on September 1st, 2017, kicking off a two-week theatrical run, and TV debut on September 26th.
As of now, the plan is to have all eight episodes of the show’s first season run “over consecutive Tuesdays,” which means that, as long as there are no unprecedented interruptions, it will finish up its run on November 14th.
Foster added, “Hopefully this will spawn more seasons of the show, and opportunistically, we’re looking at other opportunities and programs that we can become part of.”
