The Inhumans are coming, but not to a place that you would expect.
Marvel’s Inhumans is currently deep in production. Over the past few weeks, photos have surfaced revealing different cast members.
Now, we have a somewhat better idea of what the Royal Family’s situation will be at the start of the series. ABC via SpoilerTV has released an official synopsis that not only teases the characters but also reveals a brand new location for the group:
"“After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii, where their surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them may prove to not only save them, but earth itself.”"
This new setting definitely makes sense, as recent reports and set photos have shown the series to be filming in Hawaii. Now, we have absolute confirmation that the state is not doubling for another location.

Although this makes sense, it is still a major change-up from where we’re used to seeing the Inhumans. In the comics, the family is typically found in the city of Atillan, which is located on the moon. However, there have been a few comic runs that have placed the group in hidden cities on Earth. Plus, this new setting could really shake up the dynamics of the group in an interesting way.
Regardless of where they are, the good news is that we are still getting to see the Royal Family that we all know consisting of Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Triton, Crystal, Gorgon, Maximus and Lockjaw.
The series stars Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Iwan Rheon, Ken Leung, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Mike Moh, Sonya Balmores, and Ellen Woglom.
The Royal Family will officially arrive on ABC on September 26, 2017 but will first appear in IMAX theaters for two weeks beginning on September 1, 2017.
