The Gifted the Fox/Marvel show based on the X-Men related titles has been cancelled by Fox after two seasons.
It seems that despite fans and critics alike being positive about the second season of the drama that followed a family having to go on the run from authorities after their children are revealed as mutants the viewer numbers didn’t reflect that.
The Gifted‘s second season averaged a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating in Live+7, about half of its Season 1 average (2.0), and 3.3 million viewers. Although the online numbers are much better. There has been some discussion of the show moving to a streaming network but that seems more like hope than expectation.
