Another highly-anticipated series coming this year is “Marvel’s The Gifted,” which is set to air on FOX and set within the X-MEN storylines. That series stars Stephen Moyer (“Shots Fired,” “True Blood”), Amy Acker (“Person of Interest”), Natalie Alyn Lind (Gotham) and Percy Hynes White (“Night at the Museum 3”) as the Strucker family.
