Oahu will serve as the backdrop for a second major network television series starting next month when “Marvel’s Inhumans” makes its debut on ABC.

Based on comic book characters first introduced in 1965 and co-created by the legendary Stan Lee, the show joins the CBS police procedural “Hawaii Five-0,” which begins its eighth season Sept. 29.

It’s been more than a decade since there were two prime-time network TV shows regularly filming in Hawaii. The last time was 2004, when ABC’s “Lost” and NBC’s “Hawaii” were both in production here.

>> When: 7 and 9:20 p.m. Thursday; also 12:30, 2:50, 5:10, 7:30 and 9:50 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sept. 3
>> Cost: $19.05 general admission; $15.55 for keiki; $15.79 for seniors
>> Info:,

The first two episodes of “Inhumans” will be combined to create a 75-minute film that will screen in Imax theaters nationwide starting Thursday (the series was shot with Imax cameras). The eight-episode season will air on ABC starting Sept. 29.

About 150 Hawaii residents were hired to work on “Inhumans” as production crew from March through June, and a new production facility was constructed in Kalaeloa at the former Barbers Point Naval Air Station through a licensing agreement between the City and County of Honolulu, Honolulu Film Office, U.S. Navy and National Guard that was facilitated by the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism’s Creative Industries Division.
