Following a 20 second trailer released last week, Fox has unveiled the first full trailer for The Gifted, the network’s new X-Men-inspired TV series set to debut this fall. This is not the first X-Men-related series for Fox, which also debuted the series Legion on FX earlier this year.

Several established Marvel characters are known to play a part in The Gifted, including Blink (played by Jamie Chung), Polaris (Emma Dumont) and Thunderbird (Blair Redford). This trailer shows that The Gifted will have clearer connections to the larger world of X-Men than FX’s Legion (which wrapped its highly acclaimed first season run earlier this year), most notably with the line of dialogue, “The X-Men, The Brotherhood — we don’t even know if they exist anymore.” (Though, of course, that invites the question exactly where in any known live-action continuity this fits — if it fits at all.)

The Gifted has been picked up for a series order on Fox, and, like Legion before it, was developed by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television. A time slot has not yet been announced.

Here’s the official network description of The Gifted:

“Family adventure series THE GIFTED, from 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, 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” 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), Amy Acker (“Person of Interest”), Sean Teale (“Reign”), Jamie Chung (GOTHAM), Coby Bell (“Burn Notice”), Emma Dumont (“Aquarius”), Blair Redford (“Satisfaction”), Natalie Alyn Lind (GOTHAM) and Percy Hynes White (“Night at the Museum 3”)”.
