The Gifted

Critics Consensus

The Gifted continues to explore shades of grey, but with a more streamlined story that sets the show up for a stronger -- if slightly more simplistic -- sophomore season.

Tv Season Info

Season Two picks up six months later, with the Mutant Underground at their new HQ in Washington D.C., stuck in the middle of an increasingly polarized nation, as both anti-mutant sentiment and the mutant rights movement are on the rise. The X-Men believed that mutants and humans could live together in peace -- now that dream hangs in the balance.

Critic Reviews for The Gifted Season 2

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

One or two annoying characters or uncomfortable moments brought the series down a peg for me, but overall it was a really strong season, and it went out with a bang!

Apr 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Holds up a broken mirror to the real-world and serves as a thought-provoking, cautionary tale in the best tradition of X-Men.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

The mutants of The Gifted are on their own, free to chose a path toward peace or vengeance, or find something messier in between. There are many roads to revolution, but how many make for real change?

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The interesting thing about The Gifted is that both sides of the mutant faction want the same thing. They just go about it in wildly different ways.

Sep 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

As it was last season, it looks like The Gifted is determined to paint its main conflict in shades of grey.

Oct 3, 2018 | Full Review…

But for some reason, this time, seeing it all reflected in a mutant fiction feels unsettling. The story The Gifted is capable of telling is so close to reality that it makes me not want the diluted, fictional version anymore.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The concept of family is what's really going to define The Gifted over the coming months and, knowing this cast of characters, it's going to lead to a more than interesting season of television.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

The key, and what seems to be the way the Underground would go, would be to show humans that mutants are just like them. Show them there's no need to be afraid.

Sep 26, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Some of the changes here are largely superficial and temporary.

Sep 26, 2018 | Full Review…

The birth of Lorna's baby and the chaos of bringing a new mutant into the world presented us with an interesting entry point for the season.

Audience Reviews for The Gifted: Season 2

  • Aug 20, 2019
    *spoilers* Absolutely stunning. Great x-men spin-off with a lot of potential and flexibility to go in a lot of direction if it is allowed to add more known x-men characters, such as Polaris meeting her father magneto, the Stepford cuckoos meeting Emma Frost (who they are cloned from) and the arc which involved reviving the 2 dead sisters, blink's ancestry and relation to apocalypse, etc. Besides that the show only got better since season 1, eliminating the cringy childish attitude from Andy and no longer making him a punchable character, allowing for great character development into Blink, Reed, Kate and Esme, and finally, the ending is sublime. Unlike most superhero movies, especially the cheap trash ones, when there is an ending where a super-person takes on the antagonist, there is no cringy, unrealistic ending which feels wrong and does not make sense. The ending is carefully build-up to and is realistic (realistic in a world with superpowers and mutants). Without giving to much away about the ending, in case you read this even with the spoilers warning, you will be satisfied and have your questions answered. (not taking into account the final scene, which starts season 3) ABSOLUTELY MUST WATCH FOR MARVEL/X-MEN FANS.

    Season 2 is absolutely awful and not worth the amount of time it takes to watch it.
  • Jun 03, 2019
    I realy loved it. Especialy the the Struckers and Lorna/Polaris
  • May 12, 2019
    Great movie. I love it.
  • May 10, 2019
    I am not impressed with the direction the writing is going.
  • Apr 21, 2019
    liked this show, sorry it is gone, unlike some other super hero tv show it got political without being dumb, the "bad guy" chase had some cause to hate mutants and they were not the pure heroes. It was the best X-men story as a whole Fox put out, the movies and Legion had their moments but Gifted had the feel of a X-men story
  • Apr 04, 2019
    It's getting better every season.waiting for season 3
  • Mar 06, 2019
    Although still containing just OK writing, overall entertaining with a decent story line.

    TV REVIEW: ���THE GIFTED RETURNS STRONG, BUT NEEDS TO MANIFEST SOME NEW POWERS TO MOVE FORWARD��� I���ve been a fan of Fox���s X-Men movies since the beginning, except for The Last Stand and Origins of course, they were awful and need to be forgotten. But I was excited when they were going to bring the mutants to the world of television. In this story, we follow the Strucker family, who���s children emerged as mutants and are now on the run from the very government that they were working for. Season 2 now separates the Mutant Underground into 2 factions, one willing to fight the humans, and the other, willing to save them. Like with the film series, the first season (7/10) focused on mutants learning their powers, the responsibility that comes with them, and the hatred and prejudice that follows. Which is the strength of this show, as you often find yourself wondering how you would use your powers or how you would treat those that have these God-like abilities. Yes, we don���t get any classic X-Men characters that we love, but there���s enough mutant action for anyone who���s a fan of Marvel to enjoy. Still, I wish the story focused more away from the Struckers, who���s story felt overdramatized and too drawn out this season, and leaned more on discovering new mutants with even crazier powers. Maybe the cliffhanger finale will create a greater ���future��� for the show than the ���days past���. OVERAL SCORE: 7.3/10 ���NOT SURE DISNEY WILL GIFT THIS ONE A THIRD SEASON AFTER THEY BUY FOX!���

    A trama dessa temporada foi interessante apesar de ter algumas coisas parecidas com a temporada passada, é uma série que entrega perfeitamente o universo dos X-Men.
