When will The Gifted Season 3 arrive? Every single fan of the series is asking this question repeatedly ever since the release of its second season. The series went out on a hiatus after the release of the second season. And now, the fans are worried whether they will get the following season in the near future or not.
Developed by Matt Nix, The Gifted is an American superhero TV series of Fox. The show is based on Marvel’s X-Men properties, set in an alternate timeline where X-Men disappeared suddenly. The series made its debut on October 2, 2017. Its debut season received a magnificent response from the viewers as well as the critics. The following season later premiered in 2018, which was also well received by everyone.
The Gifted Season 3: Renewed?
Unfortunately, Fox decided to cancel the series after its second season. It is to be said that the network took this decision because of the low viewership of the second installment. Creator Matt Nix revealed that the series was one of the lowest-rated and least-watched shows on the network. Therefore they decided not to renew it for The Gifted Season 3. It was a soft performer in terms of linear ratings. The second season only averaged 1.1 in 19-49 demogroup. The viewership for the second dropped by a great margin compared to the debut installment.
However, there is still hope for the third season. It is possible that some other network might pick up the series for its further installment. The creator of the series also revealed that they have some plans for further installments. A few months back, a rumor surfaced that Disney+ might pick up the show for further installment. However, we didn’t hear anything official from the creators. So we have to wait for now.
What Could Happen In The Third Installment?
The finale of the second season hinted at the potential third installment of the series. The final episode introduced “oMens,” where Blink uncovered a doorway that showed a sight of the apocalyptic environment on different sides. She asked a few other mutants to go with her. In a recent interview, Matt Nix also revealed that he had some plans for the third season. He said that The Gifted Season 3 would most likely adopt the content from Days of Future Past. As he said,
” I want to explore a world where humans and the mutants live separately, and even through mutants have the same side theory, how will they control themselves? I would love to see how a community of all mutants where people have different powers and plan would work.”
The Gifted Season 3: Release Date
As of now, the renewal status of the third season is canceled. Also, there is no news of any other network picking up the show as well. Therefore it is hard to predict its release date. If any other network picks the series in the upcoming months, then the fans can expect The Gifted Season 3 to release sometime in 2022.
