Fans of Fox’s X-Men series The Gifted have waited longer than most TV series for their second season. Season 1 wrapped in January since it was only 13 episodes. So it’s been eight months since Polaris (Emma Dumont) crashed a plane and the Mutant Underground, as well as the Strucker family, split up.
The Gifted spent the summer buttering up those fans with information about the second season. The show announced Reeva Payge (Grace Byers), Erg (Michael Luwoye) and the Morlocks at Comic-Con, and revealed footage of a very pregnant Polaris and Andy Strucker (Percy Hynes White). Tonight we finally see how the second season begins.
But before that, at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association in August, show runner Matt Nix spoke with /Film for the second time after our first interview, this time with a special focus on the series premiere. Nix discussed the show’s refined focus and announced some more new mutants for us. Read More »
