The Gifted TV show won’t be back for a third season on FOX. The network cancelled the X-Men universe drama two months after its season two finale. Reportedly, there exists some chance that the Marvel series could return someday to a Disney-owned outlet, but nothing is currently in the works.
A FOX superhero drama, The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Skyler Samuels, and Grace Byers. Based on a Marvel Comics alternate timeline, the show follows two ordinary parents with mutant children who go on the run from the government and join an underground community of mutants.
The Gifted: A Look at the Ratings
The second season of The Gifted on FOX averaged a 0.59 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.95 million viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 41% and 41%, respectively. In terms of its demo numbers, it ranked 15th out of the 16 scripted FOX TV shows we’re tracking. When sorted by total audience it dropped to last place, just behind the comedy, Rel, which was also cancelled today.
The family adventure series, set in Marvel’s X-Men universe, comes from 20th Century Fox TV, which now is part of Disney.
I hear that there have been no real conversations but there is a chance for The Gifted to find a new home within the Disney family. The show is produced by Marvel Television, which currently has series on Disney-owned Freeform and Disney-controlled Hulu. (Disney+’s Marvel series come from the company’s movie division.)

I’m still super upset my show hasn’t come back with a third season. it was my all time favorite show and the only reason I watched tv was for this show
I really liked this show and was very frustrated when it was cancelled. I keep hoping some savvy company would pick it up and continue the show.
First season was good. Second season seemed muddled and directionless. You introduce the Morlocks and have a perfect opportunity to bring in excellent and loved characters like Marrow,Caliban, Artie, Leech and countless others but instead waste precious storytelling time on some goofy music box that posesses the owners and makes them speak German in their sleep?!The whole concept of The Inner Circle and The Hellfire Club was ruined almost instantly in season 2 when characters were suddenly being forced to follow ridged and life threatening rules just for being there. The complete OPPOSITE of why they wanted to join and… Read more »
