‘The Gifted’ season 2 art teases civil war ad details emerge: Thunderbird’s past, the Morlocks and Purifiers

The mutant community is divided in the second season of The Gifted and new art teases a civil war between the Mutant Underground and the Hellfire Club. Check out the image below.

On the Mutant Underground’s side is Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind), Reed (Stephen Moyer), and Caitlin Strucker (Amy Acker), Thunderbird (Blair Redford), Blink (Jamie Chung), and Eclipse (Sean Teale).

On the Hellfire Club’s side is Polaris (Emma Dumont), Andy Strucker (Percy Hynes White), the Frost Sisters (Skyler Samuels), and Reeva Payge (Grace Byers). Reeva is a newcomer, a mutant with powerful sonic blasts that scramble the minds of others. She also has a mysterious history with the Hellfire Club and will help guide those mutants who defected in The Gifted’s Season One finale.

The new season will open six months after the previous season’s finale, with Polaris about to give birth to her and Eclipse’s child.

Season Two will also introduce the Morlocks, a group of mutants who live their entire lives underground.

Introduced in Chris Claremont’s The Uncanny X-Men #169 (1983), the Morlocks take their name from the Under-world people of HG Wells’ novel, The Time Machine. To understand how this underground society views themselves, here is how Wells describes his Morlocks.

There will also be the new threat of the Purifiers, a fanatical religious terrorist group that views mutants as the spawn of the devil.

In a recent interview, star Jamie Chung revealed that, along with seeing the progression of Blink and Thunderbird’s relationship, viewers will learn more about James Proudstar’s (Blair Redford) mysterious past in Season 2.

“[You’ll get] real insight to something really quiet and intimate about them [Thunderbird and Blink],” Chung explained. “In Episode 3, lots of things are revealed about his past.”

The Gifted Season Two premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.


The 20th Century Fox Television/Marvel series picks up after the explosion of the Atlanta Station. The Mutant Underground search for their friends and family who left with The Inner Circle. Having tracked them outside of Washington, D.C., they must contend with new groups with extreme ideologies, both human and mutant alike, to stave off a brewing conflict.
