Fresh on the heels of the teaser trailer released on Friday, Fox has released the full trailer for The Gifted.

The newest addition to the X-Men televised universe, The Gifted focuses on a suburban couple, Reed Stucker (Stephen Moyer) and Caitlin Stucker (Amy Acker), who are forced to go on the run when they find out their children Lauren and Andy (Natalie Alyn Lind and Percy Hynes White) have mutant powers. 

Additional casting details announced by Variety include Sean Teale as Eclipse, Jamie Chung as Blink, Blair Redford as Thunderbird, Emma Dumont as Polaris, and Coby Bell as Jace Turner.

Events in the trailer show status and whereabouts of the X-Men as unknown. Reed and his family face additional complications due to his job being part of law enforcement crackdown on mutants, which ups the ante on keeping the kids safe from themselves and others while trying to find someone who can help them control their powers.

Speaking of powers, they're on full display in the trailer.

The Gifted, which was recently announced as going to series, is written by Matt Nix and directed by Bryan Singer. It's slated for a fall release with a premiere date coming later this year. Nix and Singer will be executive producing along with Lauren Shuler Donner (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past"), Simon Kinberg (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”) and Jim Chory (“Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Marvel’s Jessica Jones”).
