Comic book shows are all the rage these days, and after FX had it’s hit with Legion they are adapting another for their flagship FOX, ‘The Gifted’. The series will take place in a timeline similar to and Legion, a post-X-Men time where people are afraid of Mutants and they are hunted down to either become weapons or disposed of.
The show follows the Strucker family, and more importantly, the Strucker kids. The trailer starts up following Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and her younger brother Andy Strucker (Percy Hynes White) who are going to attend the high school dance when Andy is taken by some bullies to beat up in the shower. That’s when Andy gets scared and screams, and his power comes out. Andy and Lauren survived a plane crash where the two of them received some mutant powers. As awesome as this might be, the two are then hunted by the government and their parents Reed (Stephen Moyer) and Kate (Amy Acker) need to take them on the run to hide.
‘The Gifted’ will begin October 2, 2017, at 9 EST for a total of 10 episodes on FOX.
