FX’s Legion Renewed For A Third Season

by Erik Amaya


While David Haller’s (Dan Stevens) mind-bending and hip-shaking adventures in the mind continue to baffle and delight audiences in its second year, the future of the program is secured.
FX announced today the series, currently airing its second season, will continue for a third season next year. “Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season,” FX original programming president Eric Schrier said in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of Noah Hawley’s achievement and are honored to continue the series as it pushes the boundaries of conventional television storytelling. We are also grateful for the contributions of our executive producers, John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Jeph Loeb with Marvel Television, as well as our outstanding cast and crew of this groundbreaking show.”
The series, in which Stevens plays the troubled son of a prominent Marvel telepath, sees he and his friends at the Summerland Institute fighting the continual machinations of Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban), and ancient mutant also known as The Shadow King. He has hidden in David’s mind since a battle with that prominent telepath years ago and revealed himself to David in various forms, including his friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza). In the second season, David returned from a year’s captivity to discover Summerland had merged with their former enemies, Division 3, to track down Farouk and Summerland founder Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement). Meanwhile, Oliver and Farouk have been in search of the Shadow King’s original body; his one remaining weakness.
Legion airs Tuesdays on FX.
