Season 1 is the first season of the FOX American Action / Adventure television series The Gifted. It was picked up for a series order by FOX on On May 9, 2017.[1] The series currently airs in the U.S. and Canada on Mondays, starting October, 2 at 9pm.[2] The first season consists of 10 episodes and will deal with underlying themes of modern bigotry, sexism and racism.[3]

Despite being apart of the X-Men universe, The Gifted will not crossover with X-Men's other TV drama Legion. The Gifted exists on it's own timeline, separate from Legion or the films.[4]

As stated in the trailer, the X-Men are missing, and this is said to be a major focus point of the series; finding out what happened to them following “a cataclysmic event, a bit of a 9/11 event, that caused enormous social upheaval and a lot of hatred towards mutants,”[5] It’s one of the central mysteries of the show. However, in no way will the show drive the movies or will the movies drive the show.[6]

Premise Edit

The Gifted focuses on a suburban couple (Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker) whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.[1]
