Today, FX and Marvel announced that the X-Men drama will be coming back in 2018 for more of the adventure.
Legion stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, an extremely powerful, and extremely dangerous, mutant that may or not be all there in the head. One thing is for sure, watching the show, there are dark secrets that David’s mind is hiding. Whether it be an outside presence or another personality remains to be seen.
The announcement came today from Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions:
“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” said Schrier. “More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of Legion.”
“We are thrilled there will be a new season of LEGION. Noah’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,” added Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.
Hawley serves as Executive Producer, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the executive producers of the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning FX limited series Fargo.
New episodes of Legion air on Wednesdays @ 10 ET/PT on FX. Tune in tonight!
