After a strong start to the season, fans hold a shared excitement for what’s to come in ‘The Gifted’.
In a recent interview with Collider, the showrunner, Matt Nix, claimed that he doesn’t plan to have only one season, and he actually has a couple of seasons mapped out, should they happen. FOX will be overly happy and impressed with the amount of US viewers it managed to pull in for its season premiere ‘eXposed’ , which was in the region of 4.9 million viewers. If it continues with figures even near that throughout the season it could have a huge future.
Read what Matt Nix said about the future of his show below:
“I’d say a couple of seasons [mapped out], in broad strokes. In super broad strokes, we have an idea of where the show could go, as a show.”
“With this, I’m confident that I have a sense of where it goes, and a sense of what Season 1 is and what Season 2 is. One of the challenges in contemporary television is that there’s such a temptation to make everything a 10-episode mini-series because there’s so much stuff out there. If you say, “We’re going to give the secret away in Episode 10,” people are like, “All right, I’ll stick around for Episode 10.” But, I want to be doing this show for a long time. This is a show I really care about and really love, and I hope that comes across. I’m trying to think a lot about what’s a satisfying end of the season that doesn’t feel so close-ended that you’re like, “I’m all done with that.”
