Unlike most people, I still believe that the show could've been saved. Had it gotten a S2 on ABC, here's how I would've wanted it to happen:

It will be about Attilan's readjustment to its original home after centuries of lunar existence.

The conflicts will come from within and without. "Without" from a hostile outside population (that is, if Attilan's secrecy wouldn't last for long), "within" from disappointed citizens complaining over the slow pace of reform.

The season would have the Royal Family learn "The Art of Ruling Well." As an indication of the theme of "governance" playing an important role here, the show's production title will change from the bland "Project Next" to something like "Monarchy." In fact, if I had my way, I would've wanted Inhumans to be the most "Tory" property in the MCU.

As for our protagonists:

Black Bolt and Medusa start learning how to rule together. He has to learn the importance of confiding more and deciding on issues more with her, while she has to learn that sometimes, confidentiality and secrecy are important.

Crystal continues her journey to becoming the most emphatic member of the family, perhaps on her way to becoming Attilan's main emissary to the outside, or perhaps outreach à la Nakia and Shuri.

Karnak and Gorgon continue to deal with the consequences of the latter's return from death. The former would also still suffer from the head injury (which I liked from the show), thus giving him the challenge of how to operate with limited ability and keeping him from becoming OP.

Triton finally has a character story, perhaps trying to find more about himself, made all the much easier by the nearby sea.

Maximus finally gets his heart's desire through the Kree, becoming closer to his comics version. He tries to both please those who found him and pursue his goals, serving them while trying again to take over Attilan's leadership and lead Inhumans against both non-Inhumans and their alien slave-masters.

I would've wanted Bronaja to play an important role in this season, becoming a main voice for the commoners.

I've seen every single tv show in the MCU except for Inhumans and since it got taken off of Hulu I'd have to pay 2 dollars for every episode. The only reasons I even want to watch it is because Agents of Shield is one of my favorite shows in the MCU and it obviously has a lot in common with that. And also that I've seen all of the shows except this one and it's bugging me lol.

It's always such a long wait from release to home media with the Marvel shows.

  • Obviously, I would petition for more budget to do the Inhuman powers properly.
  • Make Crystal a force to be reckoned with and maybe recast the role.
  • Give Karnak his powers back with no brain damage.
  • Use stilts and CGI for Gorgon and ignore the zombie storyline.
  • Let Medusa have all of her hair back by episode 1.
  • Let the fam teleport to Attilan with suits and help and get the dome back up and running in the first episode. Get the people BACK to Attilan. Move it to Himalayas if need be but don't keep them on Earth in Hawaii
  • Use a "healing ray" or whatever to revive Mordis
  • Revisit the final ominous warning from Black Bolt about the hidden enemy coming - Make it some Kree creature/team sent to eradicate them. They have to break Maximus out to help them.
  • Give Maximus the power of telepathy/Mind Control and/or technical genius like the comics
  • Maybe tie the Kree coming for the Inhumans with the AoS Kree future stuff they've been doing. Maybe a Kasius family member was originally responsible for creating the Earth Inhumans?
  • Use much more of the Kirby style for design on costumes and whatnot, like Ragnarok
  • More background inhumans, and in various shapes, sizes and colors. Think Star Trek The Next Generation alien crowd scenes, or Guardians of the Galaxy. Heck, even the Orville does it better.
  • Show more of the Royal Family. There was a Tree guy and a Lion guy and others, IIRC.
  • Maybe tie in with the MCU Cosmic side - Maybe Benecio Del Toro guest star?
  • Like the MCU films, decide what the theme of the season will be - crime drama, disaster movie, Dystopian society, etc. and not wander and get off track with things like Pot growers and militant surfers

This series was too rushed, if even had a chance of rewriting the first season, re-shot or remake something it would be great, because let's face it guys, If the shows is cancelled, so is cancelled in every situattion, including making the movie, or a reboot, or something. If it's cancelled now then there wont be anything for the series. And simply "make the series un-canon and make a movie" is just a stupid idea.

The only way we could had a chance to see the Royal Family is if the series didnt got cancelled, but as what we seem so far, it is. Remember, ABC wont renew Inhumans because the fans see's hope, they only care about profit.

But here's the thing: If the series is cancelled and there wont be anything about the Royal Family anymore, so... what will be the future of the series and the characters?

Dammit, I love the characters, the actors and everything. Is just sad that the series is bad, because it had so much potential. Honestly I wish the seires had a S1 reboot with reshots and re-writing, because is kinda nonsensical how it ended, pretty rushed and with a important plot detail from the comics which is totally scrapped in the final episode (you know what). Also, it needed more cash for make the Inhumans more... inhuman. Like Triton and how Gorgon should like after what happened to him in the last two episodes. And how the series shows the inhuman population is like a bunch of poor people which doesnt has a home instead of alien-sapiens power-strange looking.

I was wondering, as I’ve seen posts about it, if anyone successfully managed to make a re-edit of the show into two hour movie? If so could you share it, and did it make the show any better?
