ABC sets Marvel’s Inhumans for Friday night time slot
ABC has revealed their full fall 2017 schedule and with it announced that Marvel’s Inhumans will air Fridays at 9 PM on the network.
In addition, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, despite a fifth season renewal, is not present on the full schedule for the network, though ABC says it will premiere at a later date in the season. Furthermore, a new series titled The Gospel of Kevin was put into SHIELD‘s time slot of 10 PM on Tuesdays, making it unclear if the series will take a new time or will instead follow Inhumans on Fridays after it concludes.
UPDATE: ABC has confirmed that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will move to Friday and take over Marvel’s Inhumans slot after its eight-episode season.
