THE GIFTED Showrunner Reveals its X-Men Connection

Are you curious how Fox's X-Men spin-off series THE GIFTED would address the mutant team in the TV show?

Well, you're in luck because showrunner Matt Nix has revealed this to Variety...

“In our world, one of the things we’ll be unpacking is the specific relationship of this group of characters to the X-Men. It’s in the trailer that the X-Men are gone. And that’s not a dodge, like ‘The X-Men are gone and we’re never going to mention them again!’ We’re going to be exploring it. It’s a huge deal to these guys. It’s a huge deal in the world. It’s one of the central mysteries of the show.” 
“There’s a whole sort of historical mythology. There’s not going to be a situation where the television show is driving the movies or the movies are driving the television show, because the mythology that we’re telling specifically avoids that but it doesn’t avoid that by pretending the X-Men don’t exist or there just doing stuff over and no one pays any attention.”

THE GIFTED debuts on Fox on October 2.
