X-Men’s latest spin-off show The Gifted, starring Sean Teale, has been given a UK release date of October 8 on FOX UK.

The new Marvel series, written and directed by Matt Nix and Bryan Singer, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. It is a story of survival and family, a story of mutants coming to terms with who they are and parents accepting the fact that their kids aren’t who they thought they were – even if all of their lives are at risk because of it.

Sean Teale plays the role of Eclipse, a mutant who is part of a small underground network of mutants who are resisting the Sentinel Services and avoiding capture. This network aims to help other mutants, sometimes guiding them to safety.

The Gifted starts on Sunday, October 8 at 9pm on FOX UK.
