The Gifted: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Gifted: Season 1 (2017-2018)




Critic Consensus: The Gifted's first season lays a solid foundation for an involving superhero drama that powers past the origin-story doldrums by focusing on grounded, topical stories over mindless action and special effects.

Tv Season Info

Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer), a district attorney who helps prosecute mutants for the government, goes on the run with his wife Caitlin (Amy Acker) and his children Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) when the children turn out to be mutants too and become targets of the government Reed works for. But hiding from the government's grasp proves to be a greater challenge than Reed expected, with Turner (Coby Bell), a cold-blooded Sentinel Services agent, sniffing them out at every turn. Reed and his family ironically turn to the mutant underground for help and get caught up in the mutant struggle for freedom and equality with the rest of humankind. The first season of "The Gifted" also stars Sean Teale as Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Blink, Emma Dumont as Polaris, and Blair Redford as Thunderbird.

News & Interviews for The Gifted: Season 1

Critic Reviews for The Gifted: Season 1

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (20)

While there are undeniable parallels to discrimination and immigration, The Gifted is still a rather predictable, thrill-less hour of television that hasn't found a consistent source of drama, fun, or basic entertainment.

October 3, 2017 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

It focuses on an ordinary family instead of a team of heroes, but it can't be bothered with being anything more than a bland origin story.

This latest Marvel concoction is better than ABC's Marvel's Inhumans, which launched on Friday of last week. Still, an overall weariness prevails, perhaps even among the most fanatical Marvel diehards.

Top Critic

If The Gifted hones in more on the family aspects and less on Greater Conspiracies, Fox could have a fun X-Men lite ride on its hands. Just don't expect the same level of complexity as FX's Legion.

The Gifted is off to a hugely promising start, and well worth watching.

Top Critic

"The Gifted" offers impressive special effects, topical conflicts and poignant acting as it asks: What would you do for your children?
