With the series picked up to order, and a teaser trailer released previously, Fox has unleashed the full trailer for their upcoming X-Men related series The Gifted. Just like Legion, the series, which focuses on a family on the run from the government, is a co-production between Fox and Marvel.
Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple 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.
The series stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker, Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker, Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Clarice Fong/Blink, Emma Dumont as Lorna Dane/Polaris, Blair Redford as John Proudstar/Thunderbird and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.
Matt Nix, the creator of USA’s Burn Notice, is an executive producer and the showrunner for the series. Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg and Bryan Singer from Fox, Jim Chory and Marvel TV President Jeph Loeb will all serve as executive producers on the series as well.
Singer made the leap from his work on the big screen X-Men films to direct the series pilot.
The Gifted will join Fox’s lineup for the 2017-2018 season.
