FOX is jumping on the comic book-to-T.V. series bandwagon. Following the wild success of Legion, FOX is now teasing a new series following an altogether different group of mutants. The Gifted is created by Brian Singer and Matt Nix.
Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker as “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.”
Check out the teaser:
Talking to Collider, Nix said that fans of the X-Men films and comic books “would not be disoriented as to where this fits in the mythology,” noting that the continuity of the films themselves have left a lot of wiggle room. He added, “If you like that world and the world of the movies, there are definite nods to it, it definitely exists in the same general universe.”
The Gifted expects a premiere date anywhere between this and next year.
