Set in a world where the X-Men have seemingly disappeared and mutants are on the run from the government, 'The Gifted' is Fox's latest attempt at bringing the 'X-Men' universe to TV and you can watch a sneak peek of the first six minutes right here.
Fox's latest attempt with the franchise is a reboot of sorts, this time focusing on a family that's rocked when the children discover they have mutant powers, which wouldn't be a problem except their parents ('True Blood' star Stephen Moyer and 'Person of Interest' and 'Angel' alum Amy Acker) are mutant hunters. Cue drama.
Here's the official synopsis:
Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells 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.
Said family don't make an appearance in the first six minutes previewed below, which focuses on the rag tag gang of mutants already on the run from the law, but it's only time before they cross paths.
'The Gifted' starts on FOX here on Sunday October 8th ant 9pm.
