Fox Cancels THE GIFTED and REL

Variety reports that FOX canceled Marvel drama "The Gifted" after two seasons and Lil Rel Howery comedy "Rel" after one season.

"Gifted" was set in the "X-Men" universe and followed a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their teenage children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, THE FAMILY seeks help from an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

"Gifted" starred Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, Sean Teale, Jamie Chung, Emma Dumont, Blair Redford and Coby Bell.

"Rel" was a comedy from Howery, who wrote, executive produced and starred in the show.

Inspired by Howery's real life, the comedian played a prideful, self-made success who lives by THE CODE to "always believe in yourself and great things will come," but finds that attitude gets put to the test when he learns his wife his having an affair with his barber. The character tries to rebuild his life post-divorce as a long-distance single father on the South Side of Chicago who's on a quest for love, respect, and a new barber.

Series co-creator and executive producer Kevin Barnett died suddenly in January, during a trip to Mexico, at age 32.

Sinbad, Jess "Hilarious" Moore, and Jordan L. Jones also starred.
