Check out the first six minutes of FOX’s The Gifted

FOX has released the first six minutes of the premiere episode of The Gifted.

Based on Marvel comics’ The X-Men, the Sentinels have created mutant detention centers where they’ve rounded up and imprisoned many with “gifted” abilities. The X-Men themselves have been disbanded, causing mutants to go on the run and have created an underground network. The series will revolve around the Strucker family, who are on the run after discovering their two children are mutants. They meet with the other mutants and, together, fight for their survival.

In the clip provided, we see three mutants – Lorna (Emma Dumont), Marcos (Sean Teale), and John (Blair Redford) – track down Blink (Jamie Chung), who recently escaped from a mutant detention facility. We see each character’s powers showcased in the clip and it looks pretty good.

The Gifted premieres next Monday, October 2nd on FOX.

FOX’s The Gifted Official Synopsis:

Reed and Caitlin are two normal suburban parents whose lives get thrown into chaos when they discover that their children possess mutant powers in THE GIFTED.

Teens Lauren and Andy are involved in an incident at their high school which reveals their mutual powers to the world, forcing their parents to flee their old lives in order to protect their children. The Strucker family goes on the run from the government agency the Sentinel Services, which includes Agent Jace Turner, who is determined to protect the rest of the population from mutants. And things are made even more complicated by the fact that Reed is a prosecutor in the district attorney’s office tasked with going after mutants, which is why his children hid their powers from him for as long as possible.

But with the family on the run, their only hope comes in the form of an underground network that helps mutants in trouble — and it’s full of mutants dealing with their own issues.
