The latest X-Men television spin-off, premiering this fall on FOX. No word yet on whether it takes place in the X-Men film universe or (like "Legion") is in its own universe with X-Men-like elements.

Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban 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. Written by Matt Nix (“APB,” “Burn Notice”), directed by Bryan Singer (the X-Men film franchise franchise) and executive-produced by Nix, Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner (X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Wolverine), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”), the series stars Stephen Moyer (“Shots Fired,” “True Blood”) and Amy Acker (“Person of Interest”).

The cast also includes Sean Teale (“Skins,” “Reign”), Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch, “Believe”), Coby Bell (“The Game,” “Burn Notice”), Emma Dumont (“Bunheads,” “Aquarius”), Blair Redford (“The Young and the Restless,” “Switched at Birth”), Natalie Alyn Lind (“The Goldbergs,” “Gotham”) and Percy Hynes White (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, “Between”).

So, what is the count for Marvel TV shows next season that aren't on Netflix? Gifted and Legion opn FX; Cloak & Dagger and New Warriors on Freeform; Inhumans on ABC (and SHIELD if it gets renewed). Apparently there is a Runaways series coming on Hulu.

I really liked Matt Nix' Burn Notice. I also enjoyed his The Good Guys. I hope this has some of the humor/action feel behind Burn Notice.

Full trailer:

Interesting that:
The X-Men and the Brotherhood of Mutants are explicitly name dropped, and one of the mutants is named Lorna. So it looks like we're finally seeing a live-action Polaris
