The Gifted cancelled by Fox - season three no longer happening
The Gifted has been cancelled by Fox, despite gaining a season three renewal earlier this year. Whether this is a casualty of the recent acquisition of Fox by Disney remains to be seen, but Variety, who broke thr news, did point out that the ratings halved between seasons one and two.
The X-Men themed series starred Amy Acker, Stephen Moyer, Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White as members of the Strucker family who are forced to go on the run with the Mutant Underground after the kids discover they have mutant powers. The show boasted an impressive cast, including Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford and Coby Bell and delved deep into the X-Men mythos.
Fox have also made the decision to end fellow X-Men themed (but not connected) series Legion, though this show will have a third run to end on its own terms. It seems the characters of The Gifted will get no such closure...
