The first season of The Gifted didn’t do very well in the ratings but it was renewed anyway. Will the numbers improve this time around? Will The Gifted be cancelled by FOX or is more likely to be renewed because of the upcoming Disney merger? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
A sci-fi 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. In season two, several mutants have left the group to join the Inner Circle and the two groups conflict due to having very extreme and different ideologies.
