The Gifted: What You Need to Know About Marvel's Latest TV Show

Marvel is extending its television reach. While the megacompany has shows on ABC and Netflix, it's debuting a new series on Fox this Fall: The Gifted. The family adventure series will be directed by Bryan Singer, and though Fox isn't saying it's about the X-Men . . . it's totally about the X-Men. While we wait for a full trailer and premiere date, take a look at everything we know so far.

The Plot

According to Fox, The Gifted is "the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive."

The Cast

The couple is played by Stephen Moyer (True Blood) and Amy Acker (Person of Interest). The rest of the cast includes Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Coby Bell, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford, Natalie Alyn Lind, and Percy Hynes White.
