    The Gifted is an upcoming American television series created for Fox by Matt Nix, based on Marvel Comics' X-Men properties. It is connected to the X-Men film series, the second television series to be so. The show is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, with Nix serving as showrunner.

    The series stars Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as ordinary parents who take their family on the run after they discover their children's mutant abilities. Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Percy Hynes White also star in the show. The series received a put pilot commitment at Fox after a previous attempted X-Men series did not move forward at the network in 2016; The Gifted was ordered to series in May 2017.
    The Gifted will air during the 2017–18 television season.

    Looks pretty cool. Since this one is supposedly set in the X-Men film universe (unlike, as of now, Legion), I wonder what the bit about not knowing if the X-Men or Brotherhood still exist means for how the current timeline works out.

    This trailer looks interesting! I'll definitely watch the first episode

    Also, apparently this is NOT set in the film universe (or in the same continuity as Legion).
     
  5. New trailer looks good.

    Anything that deals with X-Men I am all in for. Still need to watch Legion, though.

    As far as network action-dramas go, it was pretty solid. Liked the effects work a lot. Interested to see how it goes from here, I'm on board.

    Don't make me an optimist, you will ruin my life. Prestigious

    That was a good pilot. They introduced a lot of characters and I feel like a lot happened within the hour. Very well done. I'm excited for more.

    Keep on the sunny side.

    I enjoyed this.
     
  12. I'm going to be really disappointment if Amy Acker isn't secretly a mutant.

    Just watched this and thought it was a pretty good premiere. Definitely going to be doing some digging into these characters more since I'm largely unfamiliar with them.

    Really enjoyed this. Although the dad needs to tone it down a little. He was WAY too serious.

    I'm really digging this show so far. It's fun getting some mutant television on a weekly basis.

    Ive seen the first two episodes, this is a good show! First season is only 10 episodes so will definitely continue to follow it

    What comic series has a lot of Polaris in it?

    You could give the series All-New X-Factor a shot. It's about a corporate team of mutants featuring Polaris, Gambit, and Quicksilver.

    I'll give it a look. Thanks!

    Pretty solid season imo. I'm sure it would be impossible to get one of the biggest X-Men characters to be in this but I would love to see Emma Frost in the second season (in hopes of it getting renewed).


    Edit: I guess it has already been renewed!
