The premiere of Fox’s new series The Gifted is only a few months away and the network wants viewers to know more about the characters that will inhabit the series based on the X-Men movie universe.
IGN released a series of mini trailers featuring the characters from the new series. They introduce the members of the Strucker family including Stephen Moyer as Reed, Amy Acker as Kate, Percy Hynes-White as Andy and Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren. Also included are characters from the X-Men comics including Polaris (Emma Dumont), Blink (Jamie Chung) and Thunderbird (Blair Redford). There is also a new mutant added to the mix with Eclipse (Sean Teale) and the federal agent pursuing the family Agent Hunter (Coby Bell).
Reed and Caitlin are two normal suburban parents whose lives get thrown into chaos when they discover that their children possess mutant powers in THE GIFTED.
Teens Lauren and Andy are involved in an incident at their high school which reveals their mutual powers to the world, forcing their parents to flee their old lives in order to protect their children. The Strucker family goes on the run from the government agency the Sentinel Services, which includes Agent Jace Turner, who is determined to protect the rest of the population from mutants. And things are made even more complicated by the fact that Reed is a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office tasked with going after mutants, which is why his children hid their powers from him for as long as possible.
But with the family on the run, their only hope comes in the form of an underground network that helps mutants in trouble — and it’s full of mutants dealing with their own issues.
The Gifted premieres on Fox Monday October 2, 2017.
