THE GIFTED: Fox's Surprising X-MEN Drama Series Gets Renewed For Season 2

The season finale of Fox's critically acclaimed X-Men drama The Gifted airs on Jan. 15th, leaving some fans a bit nervous that it might actually be the "series finale". However, that won't be the case.

The Gifted, the joint project between Marvel Television and 20th Century Fox Television, has been renewed for season 2. The announcement was made earlier today by Fox. 

The series debuted to an impressive 1.5 
Nielsen rating in its series premiere on October 2, 2017 but steadily declined in subsequent weeks, dipping to a series low 0.7 rating when it returned from midseason hiatus on January 01, 2018.  

However, DVR viewership has remained strong and steady throughout the Matt Nix (Burn Notice) produced show, which is likely the key factor behind the season 2 commitment from Fox.

The January 15 season 1 finale is expected to finally answer the season-long mystery of what happened to the X-Men and why the Underground were chosen to lead the fight against 
Sentinel Services.

With the looming acquisition of Fox by Disney, season 2 of The Gifted could venture into wildly unexpected territory as the wider Marvel Universe could be brought into play.
