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 is set to air in the U.S. and Canada on Monday, October, 2 at 9pm.[2] The first season will consist 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. 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.[5]

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]
