In 2016, The Gifted was launched on Fox.  It was set in the X-men universe and followed a suburban family as their life spiraled as they found themselves on the wrong side of an oppressive government.  I won't go too much into the plot or any of the several sub plots, but it is a great show.  Watch what's available and you'll see what I mean.  The Gifted did well on rotten tomatoes, however it's main audience tuned in on streaming platforms (Hulu).  Despite this success, the show was not renewed for a third season.  I'm not in a position to know for sure, but from what I understand from my research, once Fox lost ownership, their money (and thus desire to produce the show) came strictly from network viewership and the success it found in the streaming market didn't matter.

This all being said, it seems Fox has no plans to revive the series and should be an easy pick up for Disney.  It would add a program with some strong history to the Disney+ platform and there isn't even reason to think it couldn't continue it's success should it be continued as a Hulu original (seeing as that was the platform of choice anyway.).

My goal is to obtain enough support to prove to Disney that bringing The Gifted back for a third season and beyond would be a profitable venture for their company and open the doors to other shows of it's kind (shows that take place firmly within the universe of it's characters, but not actually featuring them heavily)
