The much anticipated second season of The Gifted will come to television screens. Here’s some helpful information about how/where you can watch it, a recap of where the last season left us, and what to expect in The Gifted Season 2.

When we last saw the characters of The Gifted‘s X-Men universe, there was a major falling out among the members of the mutant underground. Some of the mutants (and humans) believed philosophies of fighting hate with hate/fire with fire, while others wanted to incite change against anti-mutant bigotry peacefully.

This became more and more the theme as the season drove on as tensions between humans and mutants grew worse and worse. Eventually, we saw Polaris (the metal-manipulating daughter of Magneto) take a definitive side on the matter and destroy a plane in flight carrying an anti-mutant presidential candidate and the psychopathic leader of Trask industries, Dr. Campbell.

This led to the split off we see at the end of The Gifted Season 1 where Polaris re-created the hellfire club in conjunction with the Frost sisters, and, surprisingly, Andy Strucker. It was a twist in the story that caused fans to question — if someone were trying to steal my children, experiment on them and torture them because they were mutants, what would we do?

This is the question our characters are faced with in season 2 of The Gifted. The Hellfire Club represents those mutants who are militaristic, taking matters into their own hands. And the underground, thus far, has represented a group desiring to take on this challenge peacefully.

In The Gifted Season 2…

We can likely expect to see the lines, which have been drawn in the sand, drawn in concrete as the war unfolds. However, an official Twitter post published on Valentine’s Day suggested that Eclipse and Polaris’ love would go on, which was sort of surprising as they found themselves on opposite ends of the spectrum as far as their respective views on how to handle the human/mutant crisis.

How this will unfold is anyone’s guess… but they should seriously consider relationship counseling. We know that she gives birth in The Gifted Season 2, so maybe this will bring them together?

In other Season 2 news, we have several seriously exciting developments to look forward to, such as a possible Magneto flashback appearance, and the confirmed appearance of a new organization to replace Trask. Could it be S.H.I.E.L.D.?

The show has also confirmed that the Morlocks and the Purifiers will join the show to provide some firepower to the mutant war. And we will also be seeing Reed Strucker develop his own set of mutant abilities, which had previously been stifled by his father.

But the mutants don’t get all the fun: apparently, Caitlin Strucker will be a force to contend with as well after being “hardened” by the decision of her son, Andy, to join Polaris and the militant Hellfire Club. She will be physically and mentally more ready for the tolls of the war in this season of The Gifted.

All in all, there is a lot to look forward to and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the X-Men spinoff.
