As The Gifted moves into the final episodes of its second season, creator and showrunner Matt Nix is sure the X-Men related series won't return to broadcast television but may have a future on a streaming service.
While appearing at a Television Critics Association event, Nix expressed hope that the series would be picked up for a potential third season on a streaming service like Hulu.
"If we come back, we’ll come back in some sort of creative way. Some partnership, because I think what we’ve discovered is that fans of The Gifted are big fans of The Gifted," explained Nix in an interview with Slash Film. "We have a solid fan base and it’s a little small for the broadcast networks. But we do well on streaming so there may be, my hope is that there’s something to work out in that realm."
With Hulu Senior Vice President Craig Erwich noting the premium streaming platform would be open to picking up cancelled Marvel properties, The Gifted may benefit as it does not have the same contractual restrictions as Netflix's Marvel original programming.
Airing Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Fox’s The Gifted stars Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker, Sean Teale as Eclipse/Marcos Diaz, Jamie Chung as Blink/Clarice Fong, Coby Bell as Jace Turner, Emma Dumont as Polaris/Lorna Dane, Blair Redford as Thunderbird/John Proudstar, Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker, Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker, Skyler Samuels as the Frost sisters and Grace Byers as Reeva Payge.
