When Fox's The Gifted returns in the fall for Season 2, trouble is set to come in threes. Actress Skylar Samuels, who portrays all three Stepford Cuckoo sisters on the X-Men drama, has teased that the telepathic triplets will have a much bigger role to play in the next season.
Speaking with TVLine, Samuels revealed that the series will dive more into the individuality of the Cuckoos. "I’m looking forward to getting to know the sisters more – especially because they each have very different personalities," the actress said. "It will be fun to see them go off on their own and develop a bit more."
On top of of seeing more of the sisters on their own, it appears that they will be up to all sorts of no good. "We’re insane!" Samuels continued. "Like, we are crazy and capable of anything, and a little ruthless. Week to week, you never know what the Frost sisters are going to do. We have some wild things ahead."
Samuels was brought in late in the first season of The Gifted. Although her identity as one of the Stepford sisters was kept a secret for a while, the season ended with all three triplets reuniting and demonstrating the great power they possess when assembled. A clear highlight in the freshmen season of the mutant drama, Samuels has now been added as a full-fledged series regular for Season 2.
Returning for Season 2 in the fall, 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, and Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker.
