Marvel shared a first look at The Gifted.

This new series has officially been picked up by the Fox network. Take a look:

A mutant family on the run but who’s who?

The Gifted is “the story of a surburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.”

The cast includes Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Natalie Alyn Lin and Percy Hynes White.

Chung is playing Clarice aka Blink, the mutant teleporter. The earlier casting report revealed Blair Redford would be playing a mutant named Sam. No word on if this will be Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball.

The new show is the second from the team behind the X-Men film franchise and Marvel Television Studios following the success of Legion on FX.

X-Men, X2, Days of Future Past, Apocalypse director Bryan Singer helmed the pilot written by Matt Nix. Singer shared photos from the set with a young mutant in what looks like a prisoner suit via Instagram.

The full trailer arrives May 15, 2017 during the Fall Up Fronts – when the major networks reveal their new shows.
