'The Gifted' Cast Talk Season 2 on a New Earth's Mightiest Show Bonus Episode
With “The Gifted” back for Season 2 Tuesday night on FOX, we’ve got a special new Earth’s Mightiest Show bonus episode for you focused on all things “Gifted,” as the cast discuss the show’s return!
Speaking about what she’s excited for fans to see this season, Emma Dumont, who plays Polaris, notes Season 2 begins big with Polaris giving birth, adding, “It’s the first time we’ve seen a mutant birth in live media and I can’t wait for people to see that!”
Season 2 introduces ruthless Inner Circle leader Reeva Payge, played by Grace Byers. Says Byers, “When you meet Reeva, you’re going to think you know who she is.” However, more will be revealed about Reeva’s past, and Byers teased, “A life changing event occurs and it makes total sense to you after that why she is the way she is.”
“The Gifted” cast members Sean Teale (“Eclipse”) and Blair Redford (“Thunderbird”) also chat about a memorable fan encounter, while Percy Hynes White (“Andy Strucker”) recalls turning the tables on Dumont at her own fan signing.
Dumont also discusses meeting fans cosplaying as Polaris, remarking, with a laugh, “People love the prison look, with the collar. I think that’s pretty funny, that that’s what the choose to wear, when I never want to wear it again!”

“The Gifted” Season 2 premieres Tuesday, September 25 at 8:00pm ET/PT on FOX.
