Fox has officially picked up "The Gifted", and we've got your first look at the series directly above! With a hostile government on their heels, they're forced to join an underground network of other mutants in order to survive. However, while Legion was intentionally created to stand apart from the cinematic X-Men universe, Nix and Singer have envisioned The Gifted as a companion series to the films that will allow for character crossover. The pickup gives Fox both a Marvel drama as well as a show from DC Entertainment as Batman prequel Gotham is also expected to be renewed. Nix and Singer, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb will all serve as executive producers.
