The fan following to dropped. Maybe this was the reason why Fox cancelled the series for the third season. The live airing of the shows was one reason behind the low viewership according to the sources.
Nix has confirmed that they have plans for The Gifted Season 3 provided some network other than Fox pick the show for airing. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the show but it seems their waiting has no end as there is no confirmation about the renewal of season three as of now. It seems fans will have to wait a little longer until some other network picks up the series for airing.
There has been no news about the production process too after the end of the second season. So we say that The Gifted’ season 3 is in no way coming back this year.
