One of Marvel’s current television shows, The Gifted, has not been renewed for a third season by Fox Entertainment (the new Fox spin-off company that Disney doesn’t own, which runs the Fox Channel and Fox News).  The show has been made by 21st Century Fox and while it wasn’t a big ratings winner, it was well received by fans.

The future of the series has been in question ever since the announcement that Disney was buying 21st Century Fox, since Marvel is planning on rebooting all the X-Men characters.  Though Disney will still be releasing the X-Men movies Dark Phoenix and New Mutants at cinemas this summer.

Fans of The Gifted are hoping the series is picked up by Disney for a third season to end the story off.  And with Freeform, Hulu and Disney+ all carrying Marvel shows, Disney could simply carry on production and move it to one of the their own networks for a quick win, while they sort out the X-Men characters future.  However this could also be a easy way of finishing the series off, while letting Fox Entertainment take the blame for the cancellation.

Fox’s other Marvel show, Legion, will end on its last season, however that decision had been made by the creative team.

Another benefit of the Gifted, is unlike other series such as Legion or Daredevil, it’s much more family friendly, so could be an added bonus in moving to Disney+.

Recently showrunner Matt Nix told /Film that he wasn’t sure that the series will return for a third season.

“I don’t anticipate a 22-episode season on broadcast but I’d love to be wrong,”

He also said that:

We have a solid fan base and it’s a little small for the broadcast networks. But we do well on streaming so there may be, my hope is that there’s something to work out in that realm.

With plans for a third season already underway and an existing cast and crew already assembled, hopefully Marvel decides to let the Gifted continue on Disney+ or Hulu for a little longer.

    Who and where should we protest about getting season 3 of The gifted back on air or A streaming site to pick it up this is way too amazing of a show to just let these Executive assholes cancel a good show like this! I bought the entire two seasons on iTunes just because someone isn't home at a certain time to watch a TV show doesn’t mean that they’re not gonna watch it later or buy it later these stupid networks dont they know cable is on the way out ! Come on netflixs buy this show and release it for the masses !!!!
