The Gifted is nearing the end of its second season, but will there be a third? Recently, creator Matt Nix spoke with SlashFilm about the future of the FOX TV show.
The Marvel superhero drama follows two ordinary parents with mutant children who go on the run from the government and join an underground community of mutants. The cast includes 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.
FOX has not announced a season three renewal for The Gifted, but creator Matt Nix thinks if the show does return, it may be on streaming:
I think that my sense is that the most likely thing is that if we come back, we’ll come back in some sort of creative way. Some partnership, because I think what we’ve discovered is that fans of The Gifted are big fans of The Gifted. We have a solid fan base and it’s a little small for the broadcast networks. But we do well on streaming so there may be, my hope is that there’s something to work out in that realm.”
And what can fans expect from the show’s season two finale? Star Emma Dumont told TVLine there’s a huge cliffhanger:
There is 100-percent a cliffhanger, but it’s not what people think. This cliffhanger is not that simple. … Maybe a new dimension? Maybe a new world? Maybe a new faction? Maybe a new comic book character? Literally, it’s the craziest twist. We were all shocked, like, ‘What is this?’”
What do you think? Do you watch The Gifted? Do you want a third season?
