In some news that may come as a surprise to some, Marvel’s The Gifted has been cancelled after two seasons.
Courtesy of Variety, Fox has moved to scrap the mutant-driven show after the ratings for the series just simply weren’t up to what the network was hoping for.
After a first season that was viewed by 3.3 million US homes, the ratings for Season 2 suffered a major drop to 1.9 million viewers. As such, the decision was made to axe The Gifted.
Premise-wise, The Gifted centred on a family who are forced to go on the run from the government after they discover that their two teenage children have mutant abilities. Existing in the larger world of the X-Men, we see an underground group of mutants doing their best to survive in a world of prejudice and hatred.
