It looks like audiences can’t get enough of the trippy, mind-bending Legion, because FX has already renewed it for a second season!
Based on the Marvel comic and character of the same name, Legion sees Dan Stevens play David Haller, a schizophrenic patient struggling to control his psychic and telekinetic powers. The show has been praised for its surreal take on what could’ve been yet another superhero series.
Jeph Loeb, executive producer for the show and head of Marvel TV, had this to say:
“We are thrilled there will be a new season of Legion… [director Noah Hawley’s] spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We’re particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.”
The show is currently six episodes into an eight episode run, but there’s no real indication yet whether the new season will be longer or shorter. All FX has said is that the second season will air some time in early 2018.
