ABC is growing its comic book empire with Marvel’s The Inhumans, a live-action drama slated to air on the network next fall.

The new, eight-episode series will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

The first two episodes will actually premiere in IMAX theaters during a two-week window in early September, before the show makes its broadcast debut. (An Inhumans film was originally slated for November 2018, then pushed to 2019… and then delayed again with no new projected date. Is this what it became? Discuss. Update: It’s not.)

A race of superhumans with diverse and unique abilities, the Inhumans were introduced to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. during Season 2 when Chloe Bennet’s Skye, via terrigenesis, evolved into the Inhuman later dubbed Quake. The new Inhumans series, by all accounts, will have no ties to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., however.
