2018 will kick-off with brand new episodes of FOX’s hot new X-Men drama The Gifted, which only has a few more episodes remaining for its first season. While there may be a short one-week hiatus right after the winter finale, on January 15 it all comes down to a massive two-hour season finale.
The network has released the synopsis for episode 12 and 13 which will air together titled “eXtraction”/”X-roads.” While we have yet to hear about a season two renewal of the show, fans of the new comic book series will most likely have some news before the first season is over.
