One of the last Marvel Television shows was “The Gifted”, which is a family adventure series that follows a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the discovery that their teenage 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.
This series is set in the future, when the X-Men have vanished but there are a few more well known X-Men characters involved in the series.
“The Gifted” was cancelled after 2 seasons, once the Walt Disney Company purchased 20th Century Fox, since they wanted only Marvel Studios to be making TV shows like “WandaVision”.
The series features True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer and Person of Interest‘s Amy Acker. The Gifted cast also includes Sean Teale (Reign) as Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time) as Blink/Clarice Fong, Coby Bell (The Game) as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont (Aquarius) as Polaris/Lorna Dane and Blair Redford (The Lying Game) as Thunderbird/John Proudstar.
Both seasons of “The Gifted” will be coming to Disney+ in the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada and New Zealand as part of the new “Star” general entertainment brand on Tuesday 23rd 2021.
