Fox's X-Men Drama THE GIFTED Gets Series Order & Teaser

Get ready for the X-Men to hit network TV.

Deadline reported yesterday that the X-Men drama series The Gifted has received a series order from Fox for the 2017-18 television season.  

Written by Burn Notice creator Matt Nix and executive produced by X-Men movie director Bryan Singer, who also directed the pilot, The Gifted focuses on 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 full cast includes:

Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, a father trying to balance his family responsibilities with his job as a district attorney.

Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, a mother struggling with her split from Reed and "increasingly challenging" teenage children.

Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker, a "perfect" kid.

Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker, a sensitive loner who keeps to himself.

Emma Dumont as Polaris/Lorna Dane: A brave and loyal mutant who can control magnetism.

Blair Redford as Thunderbird/John Proudstar, a strong-willed mutant and leader of the underground community.

Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong, a "sarcastic, lively" mutant with teleportation powers. The character was previously portrayed by Fan Bingbing in Singer's film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Sean Teale as Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, a rebellious mutant who can absorb and manipulate photons.

Coby Bell as Jace Turner, a man struggling with the cold-blooded requirements of his job.

In addition, Fox has released a 20-second teaser trailer for The Gifted, with a full trailer arriving five days from now.  You can view it below thanks to the official Fox account on YouTube...
