See More Than An TV Show

Now I understand the concept of views and the percentage to allow the money to be an factor to even produce another season but what about the fans people that really matter. Out of 100% of this world there's only an 3/4 to over 76% of people that watched and loved the show and you stopped and maybe for good reasons coming to the idea of production. But I'm really feeling like some of the members of the the Gifted, having to fight a global media base to bring back a show that secretly means a lot. Another hit down the drain. Thanks America

Great show for tweens and teens!

This is coming from a 12 year old; this show is gifted! I have been watching it for awhile and I'm almost finished. Me and my friends all love this show! There is a little bit of drug use, and some violence like one of the main people in this show, gets shot in the chest. Other then that this show is great!

Too much violence
