The Gifted has been confirmed for a second season a long time back. The show did very well with its first season, and the fans will be excited to see what the second season will bring. The renewal of the Gifted was not surprising at all considering the number of viewers that the show amassed with its first season. The Fox network was definitely happy with the results of the first season.
The Gifted Season 2 will premiere on September 25. The show has seen a change in slots. It has been shifted from Monday night to Tuesday nights on the Fox schedule. The show will now fill the 8 p.m. ET time slot. The first season of the show aired back on October 2, 2017. This year the show has returned a bit earlier, not like we are complaining.
