The Gifted appears to be going all out for this year Comic-Con. Below we have a summary of the new season’s focus as well as The Gifted – Cool new filters which we’ve already seen a glimpse of on the San Diego Trolley cars.
The new season will have a different focus than Season 1, see below:
Season 1 of The Gifted ended with our embattled mutant heroes following in the footsteps of Professor X and Magneto and choosing different paths, after coming to the heartbreaking realization that they may technically be on the same side, but have very different goals.
Season 2 will explore these two factions –
- the Mutant Underground (which includes Blink, Thunderbird, Eclipse, Lauren, Reed, and Caitlin) and
- the Hellfire Club’s Inner Circle (Polaris, the Frost Sisters, Andy, and Season 2 newcomer Reeva, played by Grace Byers) – and their differing approaches to fighting for mutant rights.
Fox will be showcasing both groups in some unique interactive artwork at San Diego Comic-Con, and IGN has an exclusive first look at the images, each showcasing two characters from the series. The network will also be giving away a mini poster which combines all the duos at the network’s booth (#4229) on the convention floor.
Below is the info for the panel at Comic-Con 2018!

On Snapchat – To represent the duality of the new season, fans can download an exclusive Gifted Snapchat filter that will allow them to see the art in a whole new way. While in selfie mode, you’ll get a look at yourself with glowing “mutant vision,” and when using your back camera, red and blue filters will allow you to unlock new dimensions of the images. Fox will also be handing out physical filter gel cards that you can hold up to your eyes – so even if you’re not on Snapchat, you’ll still be able to unlock the images, which will also be featured at the Omni Hotel and wrapped around the trolleys on the Green Line (which stop outside the Convention Center and at the Gaslamp Quarter).
