In a move that surprised people because of how long it took Fox have renewed their X-Men spinoff The Gifted for season two.
The show centres around a family thrown into chaos and forced on the run when they discover children Andy (Percy Hynes White )and Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) are both mutants. Along the way they meet the Mutant Underground and come into conflict with Sentinel Services.
The show’s success seems to be its ability to tell a compelling story about its characters and the choices they face while also dropping in a lot of references and characters known to fans of the comic books. Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker round out the Strucker family as Reed and Kate.
