Default The Gifted To End This Season Or Next Because Of Disney/Fox Deal

Fox’s X-Men TV series The Gifted just wrapped up its second season with a big cliffhanger, but it seems the writing’s on the wall for the Marvel spinoff show. Fans were already worried for its future after this season suffered from lackluster ratings, but the latest intel that’s come our way points to The Gifted mostly being in danger due to the Disney/Fox deal.

As every film fan knows, the Mouse House is currently in the final stages of swallowing up one of their biggest rivals and one of the most significant outcomes of the Fox deal is that Marvel Studios will reclaim the rights to the X-Men. It hasn’t been outright confirmed at this stage, but all the signs are pointing to president Kevin Feige pulling the plug on the existing mutant franchise and rebooting the children of the atom into the MCU.

As such, The Gifted – a show that’s loosely set in the continuity of the movies – will have to go. That’s according to a source who’s told We Got This Covered that fans shouldn’t expect the series to survive past season 3, with it also very possible that it could simply end with season 2. This news follows the official announcement last month that fellow X-series Legion would also be ending after its third season.

The Gifted‘s season 2 finale saw the return of Jamie Chung as Blink, emerging from a portal onto some sort of ravaged world, asking her Mutant Underground buddies for help. It looked like the show was teasing a time travel or parallel universe plotline for the third run, but we’re unsure if this will ever be explored now.

The landscape of Marvel TV is, of course, undergoing a huge shift of late. Netflix has already wiped the slate clean of its superhero shows and Disney Plus is set to sport reams of exclusive original content courtesy of Marvel Studios. We even previously reported that Marvel wants to make several X-Men shows for the streaming service – including one for Wolverine.

"The Gifted" Canceled by Fox after 2 Seasons; Marvel Drama Could Potentially Find New Home at Disney
by Nellie Andreeva
April 17, 2019

Fox has opted not to renew its sophomore drama series "The Gifted" for a third season. The family adventure series, set in Marvel’s X-Men universe, comes from 20th Century Fox TV, which now is part of Disney.

I hear that there have been no real conversations but there is a chance for "The Gifted" to find a new home within the Disney family. The show is produced by Marvel Television, which currently has series on Disney-owned Freeform and Disney-controlled Hulu.

(Disney+’s Marvel series come from the company’s movie division.)

"The Gifted" was well received by critics, with its second season scoring even higher on Rotten Tomatoes (85% vs. 74% for Season 1.) But the drama was a soft performer in linear ratings for Fox in its second season, which wrapped in February. "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.

Because Fox no longer has ownership in the series, linear ratings play a bigger role in the broadcast network’s renewal decisions. (Like most genre series, The Gifted does well in online viewing).
