THE GIFTED Star Jamie Chung Says We'll Learn More About Thunderbird's Past In Season 2

We learned that the X-Men chose Blair Redford's Thunderbird to lead the Mutant Underground in Season 1, and viewers will soon learn more about the mutant leader's past in the second season of The Gifted.

When the first season of The Gifted began, most of the members of the Mutant Underground had already been active for a long time. As a result, the series didn't need to spend much time exploring our heroes' backstories.

However, in a recent interview, star Jamie Chung revealed that, along with seeing the progression of Blink and Thunderbird's relationship, viewers will learn more about James Proudstar's (Blair Redford) mysterious past in Season 2.

"[You'll get] real insight to something really quiet and intimate about them [Thunderbird and Blink]," Chung explained. "In Episode 3, lots of things are revealed about his past."

It's not clear what we'll learn about the Underground's fearless leader, but the show's freshman season has already revealed that the X-Men put him in charge of the Underground. So, it'd be nice if we learned more about why the Marvel heroes disappeared.

What do you folks think? Are you excited to see more of Thunderbird's past when The Gifted returns? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
