Marvel Television is not done with ABC yet. Not by a long shot.

Between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. entering its fifth season and the upcoming Inhumans, these chances to expand the MCU remain very important to the company.

In a recent interview with CBR, Marvel’s Head of TV Jeph Loeb talked about future Marvel shows for the network.

“Absolutely. Absolutely. Obviously these aren’t things I can talk about. But look, as it is with every single one of the networks that we have gotten with that this is with, and whether it’s Fox or it’s FX or it’s Freeform, or it’s Hulu, or it’s Netflix, ABC is always going to be our mothership.”

That makes sense. ABC is owned by Marvel’s parent company Disney.

Even Loeb pointed that out as well, “It is a Disney-owned network. We are a Disney-owned corporation and we’re a good fit for each other.”

In regards to the other shows, such as the Netflix dramas, it doesn’t mean that ABC isn’t approached with the projects. It’s a question about whether it’s right for the network.

“I think people confuse the fact that we go to other networks as a sign that we’re not on ABC. The truth of the matter is that those shows weren’t appropriate for us to be on ABC. How do we know that? We talk to ABC and we talk about what is it that you’re looking for?”

Inhumans will hit ABC on September 29th.
