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 »

Matt Nix was at the Fox party for the Television Critics Association ,so I got to speak with him about season 2 of his X-Men series The Gifted. We’ll bring you the full interview with Nix before the season premiere of the show, but there were a few items that needed to be shared right away.
The Gifted is set in a world where the X-Men have disbanded after rampant mutant persecution. The story revolves around the Strucker family, who found the Mutant Underground after their children manifested powers. In the season finale, Polaris (Emma Dumont) turned full Magneto and brought down a passenger plane to get to an evil senator, and the rest of the underground had to split up and run.
In our conversation, I learned about a new mutant character Nix is creating in season 2 and what’s next for Trask Industries.
