      The Gifted Premiere Effectively Blends Family Drama With Marvel’s Merry Mutants










      After the successful launch of Noah Hawley’s hallucinogenic X-Men-adjacent series Legion earlier this year, 20th Century Fox continues to make the most of the rights to Marvel’s merry mutants with another television adventure inspired by the superhero outcasts. The Gifted hails from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix, and presents a compellingly mutated take on the classic X-Men story of discrimination and persecution from a world gripped by fear over what these unique individuals can do. And while the story of a family on the run from its own government doesn’t necessarily push the mutant story in a radical new direction, it does reposition it from much less fantastical, yet surprisingly compelling, perspective. The emphasis on family drama, then, becomes the series’ main selling point, with the world once inhabited by the X-Men serving as a reliable backdrop while adding a hint of mystery.
      The reliability of the mutant property is what makes The Gifted work, and coming just days after the television premiere of Marvel’s appallingly bad Inhumans miniseries, its competency and consistency stands in stark contrast to the ramshackle presentation of the publisher’s ultra-lame moon-based upstarts. Even without such notable players as Wolverine, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Professor X, or Beast, the X-Men universe remains a compelling place to visit. And in his creation of a post-X-Men world, Nix has a firm grasp on why it works so well: the characters’ humanity in the face of dehumanizing discrimination is ultimately more fascinating than whatever amazing power is at their fingertips.





      The Gifted
      is primarily a story about the Strucker family, headed up by Reed (Stephen Moyer) and Kate (Amy Acker), and their two teenage children, Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White). The Struckers are about as nuclear a family as you can get, and that connection becomes incredibly important once it’s clear Lauren and Andy are children of the atom. And in a world where mutants are hunted down over fears of what they might do with their abilities, Nix adds a degree of difficulty with Reed’s job, which puts him near the front lines of the human vs. mutant war being waged by the government. Surprisingly, this doesn’t generate immediate conflict between Reed and Kate, but rather it demonstrates how strong the family bond is by how quickly both parents act in order to protect their children.










      Although The Gifted doesn’t feature the X-Men, and in fact only mentions them with past tense remarks shaded in tragedy, that doesn’t mean the series lacks any X-Men of its own. A small group of mutants headed up by Sean Teale‘s Marcos Diaz/Eclipse that also includes the likes of Clarice Fong/Blink (Jamie Chung), Lorna Dane/Polaris (Emma Dumont), and John Proudstar/Thunderbird (Blair Redford), works to ferry mutants to safety and avoid confrontations with the mutant hunters at Sentinel Services, like Burn Notice‘s Coby Bell.
      It’s a strong pilot, made so in part by some smart writing choices that use action as exposition, and by the direction of Bryan Singer, who, at this point, knows a thing or two about making a live-action X-Men product. The pilot is something of a return to form for Singer, as its circumstances (and network television budget restrictions) has him delivering an episode that’s more in keeping with the kind of storytelling on display in X2 than, say, the CGI bombast of Days of Future Past or X-Men: Apocalypse. The tenor of the premiere, as Reed and Kate deal with the realization their children are mutants and as such are at risk of some horrific treatment by the government, is in keeping with the moment Logan, Rogue, and Pyro wind up at Bobby Drake’s house and meet his less-than-understanding parents. The Gifted‘s focus on fear and discrimination, and the unintended consequences of discovering you’re a mutant, offers the X-Men franchise an avenue to deliver a smaller, more intimate, and grounded narrative, while its blockbuster sibling can focus more on spectacle and the genre elements that work on a grand scale.








      Where The Gifted excels, though, is in the blending of its various story threads, and the way it balances the intrigue of the not-quite X-Men headed up by Marcos, the anxiety of Reed and Kate doing whatever they can to protect their children, and the way Laura and Andy must come to grips with the realization that life will never be the same for them. It’s a lot of story to tackle spread out among a sizeable cast, but the first hour manages to find time to generate interest on all three fronts. Surprisingly, it also finds a considerable amount of intrigue in Reed’s internal conflict, and the realization that he was helping perpetuate the sort of discrimination his children now face. By the end of the first hour, Nix throws a curveball at the family-on-the-run conceit of the series by separating Reed from his family following a surprisingly kinetic mutant battle with Sentinel Services that allows all the mutants (Strucker children included) a chance to shine.
      In the end, The Gifted works because it smartly positions itself as a spinoff of the much larger and very popular X-Men franchise. Nix isn’t trying to rewrite what is by now a very familiar playbook; he’s just adding a few new rules and dusting off more than few old ones. The result is a series with a likeable cast that makes good use of its recognizable comic book characters, but still finds a way to present its human characters as complex individuals who don’t necessarily see the choices in front of them in black and white. After a premiere as strong as ‘eXposed’, it looks like The Gifted will be an easy win for FOX.

      The Gifted Premiere Draws Higher Ratings Than Inhumans





      Marvel’s Mutants have beat out Marvel’s Inhumans in overnight ratings, with FOX’s The Gifted drawing a higher audience for its premiere then Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC did.
      The two Marvel TV series are markedly different. The Gifted features a group of mutants on the run in a borderline dystopian future where they are hunted down for their abilities, whereas Inhumans revolves around the Royal Inhuman Family finding themselves as fish out of water on Earth (and in danger). While Inhumans has been panned by critics, The Gifted has been critically acclaimed. Fans seemed to have similar interest in these two series, as evidenced by their respective pilot episode ratings.


      According to TVLine, The Gifted clocked in at an audience of 4.9 million, or a 1.5 in the ratings. That’s better than FOX’s previous Monday telecasts from last year’s fall television season. Compared to Inhumans, with its 3.9 million viewers in the first hour and 3.6 million in the second hour, it seems that audiences were more interested in watching mutants on the run than Inhuman royalty being exiled. That said, it’s important to keep certain things in mind, when comparing the ratings turnout for these respective Marvel comic book TV adaptations.


      Inhumans also screened in IMAX theaters, ahead of its premiere on ABC. The first two episodes of the series grossed about $2.85M in IMAX, playing on about 393 screens and ranking about 14th at the box office overall at the time. Inhumans may not have been helped by its connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some ways either, whereas The Gifted had no such pre-set expectations to face and was able to attract viewers with the promise of a standalone story set in the larger X-Men universe.
      It remains to be seen if The Gifted can maintain the quality of its pilot episode. The show’s second episode will see its main characters go on the run, ready to make sacrifices, and ready to get down to business, with new villains looming on the horizon. Much larger threats were hinted at in The Gifted‘s premiere episode too and could wind up giving the series more forward drive than Inhumans, by comparison.
      Then again, things may yet turn around for Inhumans, now that the pilot episode is done with and the Inhuman Royal Family is on the run themselves. Similar to how The Gifted now faces the challenge of maintaining the pacing of its premiere episode hereon forward, Inhumans needs to kick things up a notch and turn the MCU-based TV show into a must-watch event in its own right.
      Marvel’s Inhumans airs Fridays at 9 PM on ABC. The Gifted airs Mondays at 9 PM on FOX.

      The Gifted: Polaris Will Find Out She’s Magneto’s Daughter





      The Gifted will explore its connection with the X-Men films when Polaris (Emma Dumont) learns about her lineage as the daughter of one of the most powerful and controversial mutants ever – Magneto. The new FOX TV series officially premiered last week and was largely well-received by critics. Coupled with solid viewer ratings, that is a good sign for the remaining episodes in the show’s debut season.
      The character of Polaris has a long storied history in the world of X-Men comic books. Created by Arnold Drake and Jim Steranko, and introduced in 1968’s X-Men #49, she was one of the first X-Men to join the original five. As powerful as she is, what makes her all the more interesting and relatable is her struggle to cope with her mental illness. With such a rich mythology to mine from, many are obviously very happy to see her come to life on the small screen via The Gifted.
      During The Gifted panel at New York Comic-Con 2017, Dumont addressed fans’ query about whether Polaris is going to find out that she is the daughter of Magneto or not – and if she does, how that kind of bombshell will affect her character arc moving forward:




      Polaris has heard rumours about who her father is and she’s heard…it’s this very powerful mutant, but then she’s heard that some people may consider him a villain, and that he’s not a good guy, but that he’s done some great things, but maybe they weren’t great, and he has very specific views, and he’s very black and white, and no one should challenge him, and he’s very stubborn. And she’s like, ‘oh wait, that’s how I am. Maybe he is my dad. Am I a bad guy? I don’t know.’
      She definitely…Magneto is her father, and she will find out about it soon enough.”




      While the cast and crew of The Gifted continue to be forthcoming about the show’s connections to the larger X-Men, it remains to be seen how significant Polaris’ lineage will actually be in the series’ overall story. Magneto, of course, is a staple in the ongoing X-Men movie franchise and since the show is connected to the film series, albeit in a somewhat loose sense, it is interesting to know how he will factor into events on the FOX TV series. As of now, however, this tiny but potentially narrative-changing detail is of secondary concern on the series, but showrunner Matt Nix has indicated that the show will further explore Polaris and Magneto’s familial connection down the line.
      In the meantime, while The Gifted is still getting started, the show can establish Polaris as a character on her own, devoid of the looming fact that she is Magneto’s daughter. The last thing we want is for her narrative arc to be solely hinged on her lineage, without giving her the opportunity to fulfill her potential as a player in her own right. The premiere episode only hinted at her impressive abilities and it will be great to see her further grow and carve her own path (free of references to Magneto) over the episodes to come.


      The Gifted
      continues tonight with ‘rX’ on FOX.

      The Gifted Season 2 Has Been Officially Ordered By FOX FOX has officially renewed X-Men TV show The Gifted for season 2. The news isn’t surprising, considering that the series has been performing well in the ratings department. However, some fans were concerned for the show’s future after Disney purchased 20th Century Fox for $50 billion, finally allowing Marvel Studios access to X-Men and Fantastic Four characters.Set in the same universe as FOX’s X-Men movie franchise, The Gifted shows a viewers a world where mutants must fend for themselves against the persecution of the government, but without any intervention from the X-Men. A seemingly normal family sees their lives upended when their children are revealed to be mutants. After going on the run from the authorities, Reed (Stephen Moyer) and his family must turn to the mutant underground in order to survive. Also featured in the show are three prominent X-Men comic book characters: Thunderbird (Blair Redford), Polaris (Emma Dumont), and Blink (Jamie Chung.)The show’s season 2 renewal was announced during FOX’s portion of the winter TCA press tour. There’s no word yet on if season 2 will be 22 episodes or shorter. Season 1, which premiered in the first week of October last year, will consist of 13 episodes total, with the final two airing together later this month.The Gifted was expected to receive a second season order in light of how well the show has performed in the ratings. For the Fall 2017 season, the show was ranked the #3 new drama. The show averages 8.3 million viewers across all platforms and 2.0/7 in the Live +7 ratings. The show brings in solid ratings for the network, and does better than most series when factoring in those viewers that record The Gifted on their DVRs.Fans will have to wait and see how season 2 of The Gifted continues to build on the X-Men universe. As the first season has progressed, the X-Men have been continuously name-dropped, and the season finale is expected to explore those connections in greater detail. The finale will also touch on Polaris’ relationship with Magneto, who comic books fans know is the character’s father.Created by Matt Nix, The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Coby Bell, Jamie Chung, Blair Redford, and Emma Dumont.MORE: The Gifted Should Bring Back Peter Dinklage as Bolivar TraskSource: FOX

      The Gifted: Reed Will Develop Super Powers In Season 2



      The protagonist of The Gifted, Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer), will gain a mutant ability when the show returns for season 2. Reed and his wife, Caitlin, spent season 1 trying to protect their mutant children, while also being the Mutant Underground's only human allies. Now Reed too will know what it feels like to be a mutant.
      After learning of his father's research into mutant DNA, Reed discovered that his children's powers ran in the family. They were connected to the von Strucker twins, two powerful characters from the comic books. In the show, the Strucker twins are notorious killers who combine their powers for destructive purposes. Apparently, Reed was a mutant too, until his father found a way to suppress his X-gene, which kept him from developing powers.



      In an interview with TV Guide, Stephen Moyer and showrunner Matt Nix reveal that Reed will finally have powers of his own in season 2. Moyer says that Reed's journey of discovering his abilities will begin when he decides to investigate his past and his father's notes. Moyer says the powers are "in the family" but doesn't reveal the specifics, or if they have any connection to the powers of the original Strucker twins. Nix explains that Reed's long-suppressed abilities can be "very, very bad news."




      So when they come along, it's a rough ride. It's a very, very rough ride. It's not like he's suddenly a super hero. And one of the things we think about a lot is how are these powers hooked into someone's emotional life, and Reed's a pretty repressed guy. So powers showing up for Reed is not good news. It's very, very bad news.




      Both in the comics and in the movies, situations where mutants access their powers for the first time have a history of ending badly. Often, these events lead to tragedy. It all depends on the nature of the power. Andy, for example, unintentionally wrecked his school after being bullied. Reed could cause a similar - if not worse - catastrophe with his abilities.
      Fans caught a glimpse of Reed's new discovery in a recent promo for season 2, where he's seen looking down at the veins in his hand which seem to be pulsating with red energy. It's unclear what will cause Reed's powers to manifest after all this time.


      Reed's metamorphosis could have an effect on his role in the Mutant Underground. Some of the mutants were unwilling to trust him at first, but his new powers will make him one of them. If he becomes as
      powerful as his children or his grandparents, Reed could prove to be instrumental in the fight against the Hellfire Club.



      Season 2 of The Gifted premieres Tuesday, September 25th on FOX.

      X-Men TV Series The Gifted Canceled by FOX After Season 2



      The X-Men television series The Gifted has been canceled by Fox after season 2. The Gifted follows the lives of a suburban couple who suddenly must face the fact that their children possess Mutant powers. Although the series does share a connection with the X-Men movies, it occurs in an alternate timeline where the X-Men have all but disappeared.
      The first season of The Gifted sees the family join an underground community of other Mutants who have gathered together to survive. However, at the end of that season, several of those Mutants leave the original community to form the Inner Circle, with the second season focused on the two groups conflicting with each other. Fox initially greenlit the series in 2017 following a successful pilot created by Matt Nix and directed by Bryan Singer. A few weeks later, Fox released the first full trailer for The Gifted, which explained the series' premise, as well as introduced the two teenagers of the family, one who discovers his powers after being attacked by bullies, the other having already been aware of her powers, which she keeps hidden from her parents. A second season ofThe Gifted recently aired.



      Unfortunately, though, The Gifted has come to the end of its run, at least on Fox. Deadline reports that Fox decided to cancel the show. Although well-received by critics, Fox pulled the plug after the series failed to meet linear ratings goals, despite its Live+7 numbers being generally good. This decision was also probably affected by the fact that Fox no longer owns the show: The Gifted is officially now the property of Disney, thanks to that company's recentdeal to acquire certain 21st Century Fox film and TV assets.




      Disney's deal with Fox, as well as its plan to launch its own subscription service later this year have meant a lot of upheaval for Marvel shows on TV. Netflix decided to drop all of its Marvel TV shows after Disney+ was announced, leaving fans of Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Daredevilheartbroken. However, other shows, such as Cloak & Dagger, which airs on the Disney-owned Freeform, and Runaways, which streams on Disney-controlled Hulu, continue to have bright futures.


      With Disney now owning The Gifted though, this could mean that the company could revive it on its Disney+ streaming subscription service,
      which launches in November. Although Deadline reports that there are currently no conversations about this as of yet, it's still within the realm of possibility. So fans of The Giftedshould not give up hope just yet.
