Inhumans showrunner Scott Buck explains that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does indeed have connections to his new series, although he won’t confirm nor deny the possibility of a crossover.
Buck explained to Comic Book Resources at the San Diego Comic Con that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s take on the Inhumans are indeed relevant to the show, but they should be seen as long-lost family members to the core Inhuman society:
“We have seen ‘Nuhumans’ on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but this is completely different. These are Inhumans who know exactly who they are and know the importance of their powers. They know the importance of their Terrigen ceremony which is the holiest, most ritual ceremony in their civilization. I think the ‘Nuhumans’ who inhabit Earth have no idea what’s going on. They are distant relatives of our characters.”
Again, there’s nothing on whether or not we’ll see the the Inhuman Royal Family appear alongside the Agents working for S.H.I.E.L.D., but considering that Agents more or less laid out the mythology for the Inhumans show to expand upon, it seems like it ought to happen eventually.
Inhumans will shake the world in September 2017 – September 1 for the two-week IMAX debut of the first two episodes, and September 26 for the beginning of the broadcast for the full eight-episode season. The show’s cast includes Anson Mount as Black Bolt, Serinda Swan as Medusa, Iwan Rheon as Maximus, Ken Leung as Karnak, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Mike Moh as Triton, and Sonya Balmores as Auran. In addition, Ellen Woglom will portray an original character, and the gigantic dog Lockjaw will appear as a CGI creation.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return in January 2018.

5 Potential Marvel TV Shows To Rival HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
With news breaking that Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of both Lost and The Leftovers, is in talks to develop a Watchmen show for HBO, Marvel needs a new TV hit. Don’t get me wrong, I know Agents of Shield still has a huge following, but I stopped watching the Netflix shows during the second season of Daredevil. And FX’s Legion was just… okay for me. It’s not that I don’t love Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, but it’s not fair to put lower-tier characters like them in competition with a juggernaut like Watchmen.
HBO was clearly taking notes when Netflix started releasing their shows, so this seems like a great moment for Marvel to take some notes on their competition. If DC is going to churn out a Watchmen series, then Marvel needs to dig deep into their libraries to find stories worthy of being brought to the silver screen.
So hit Next to find out about five properties Marvel should consider adapting if they want to match HBO’s Watchmen.
