The Gifted Earns a Season 2 at Fox

FOX Renews'The Gifted for Season 2

The renewal also comes at the top of a day where network executives are very likely to face lots of questions about FOX's future given the pending sale of its sister studio and other assets to Disney.

Fox's budding new series will wrap up its first season with a two-hour finale on January 15.

Ahead of its upcoming Season 1 finale, Fox has renewed The Gifted, its family adventure series set in Marvel's X-Men universe, for a second season.

After receiving a second season pick-up earlier today from Fox, the network is said to be "reviewing" Bryan Singer's executive producer credit following sexual misconduct allegations made against the director.

The Gifted ranks as Fox's No. 3 new drama of the 2017-18 broadcast season, averaging 8.3 million total viewers (with seven days of DVR), according to The Hollywood Reporter. The finale episodes are titled eXtraction and X-roads.

Lynch, whose uncle, Kevin Lynch, was a star for the Gophers from 1988-91, played at Edina High School in the Minneapolis suburbs. Minnesota coach Richard Pitino is reportedly scheduled to meet with the media sometime Friday morning.

In the all-new, two-hour season finale of The Gifted, "eXtraction/X-roads", airing Monday, January 15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Dr. Campbell (guest star Garret Dillahunt) attends the Humanity Today summit, attempting to take the Hound program national, while some of the team at Mutant HQ go on a unsafe mission to stop his efforts.

Tthe show follows a suburban couple (Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker) whose lives are changed when their children come out of the mutant closet.

You could've asked Chris, David, and Gillian at various times since the show originally premiered whether they would do more.

The renewal was not a surprise since the TV show has been getting good ratings ever since it debuted on Fox back in October. The Gifted has proven to be a fantastic ride thus far for X-Men fans, and comic fans in general.
