Today is a great day to be a fan of Fox’s The Gifted because we just got word that the show has been renewed for a second season! That’s right, the Mutant Underground and the Strucker family will live to fight another day. Or rather another season, because The Gifted season 2 is happening! And we couldn’t be more excited since The Gifted is TVshowpilot’s top new TV show. And since the renewal means that the show is one of the lucky ones to not be a one-season wonder. Getting a sophomore season and hopefully many more seasons after that!

Want proof that The Gifted season 2 is, indeed, happening? Just minutes ago the official Twitter account for The Gifted tweeted the confirmation. Along with a picture collaborating these amazing news!

And, as Deadline reports, the news was also shared on Fox’s portion of the winter 2018 Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour that is happening right now. Making this The Gifted season 2 renewal even more real and official!

Fox’s The Gifted premiered at the beginning of October and enjoyed pretty good ratings all throughout the show’s freshman run. Which, by the way, isn’t over yet, since the last two episodes of The Gifted season 1 are yet to air (The Gifted two-hour finale airs on Monday, January 15). So a renewal was very possible. However, when it comes to TV show renewals, no one can ever be too sure about anything until it is officially announced. But now that it is confirmed that The Gifted has been renewed for season 2, we can truly enjoy the show’s finale, without the fear that there won’t be any more new episodes. 

What do we know about The Gifted season 2?

What do we know about the show’s second season? Not much, since the news broke literally today. But we can expect that The Gifted season 2 will most likely last 13 episodes or more since the first season was 13 episode as well. And that The Gifted season 2 will premiere sometime in 2018, probably in fall 2018. So are you stoked that Fox renewed The Gifted for a second season? And what do you want to see happen during it? Sound off in the comments below. And don’t forget to watch The Gifted season 1 two-episode finale on January 15 on Fox!
