Fox Cancels Marvel Drama ‘The Gifted’ and Comedy ‘Rel’

Now is the Time When the Broadcast Networks Eliminate the Weak Links

Fox will not move forward on new seasons of freshman sitcom “Rel,” which formerly aired in the Sunday 9:30 p.m. ET half-hour, and sophomore drama “The Gifted.”

“Rel” was a multi-camera comedy that hailed from comedian Lil Red Howery, who wrote, executive produced and starred in the show.

“The Gifted” was set in the Marvel “X-Men” universe and followed a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their teenage children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family seeks help from an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive. It starred Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford and Coby Bell.
