[WATCH] See Mutants Track Down One of Their Own in the First Six Minutes of 'The Gifted'

FOX has released the first six minutes of their upcoming show The Gifted, set in the X-Men universe. The show focuses on the Strucker family, who is on the run after they discover their two children have mutant powers. The father, played by Stephen Moyer, must come to terms with this fact after spending his career as a district attorney putting away dangerous mutants. Familiar characters from the X-Men universe, such as Blink, Thunderbird, and Dr. Roderick Campbell, appear in this new series to help and hinder the Struckers in their escape from the U.S. Government.

FOX claims The Gifted will be more closely tied to the X-Men films than the recent FX series, Legion, which focused on the son of Professor Charles Xavier. However, both Legion and The Gifted are "more of their own thing," according to X-Men movie producer Hutch Parker. In an interview with ScreenRant, he went on to explain, "without being specifically tied, they're another way in which the Universe is getting expanded." Much like Marvel's Agents of Shield, the series will explore aspects of the universe we didn't get to see in the films, but don't expect to see characters from The Gifted on the big screen anytime soon.

Watch the first six minutes of FOX's The Gifted series premiere.

Blink, a mutant capable of opening portals, is on the run from police after her escape from prison. Unknown to her, a group of fugitive mutants is also trying to find her, to rescue her from her captors. Blink must decide who to trust in order to evade the police.
