FX's Marvel Series LEGION Will Come to an End With Season 3
If you’re a fan of Noah Hawley’s X-Men TV series Legion, I’ve got some bittersweet news for you. The bitter part of the news is that the series will come to an end after season three. The sweet part is that the series isn’t ending because it’s being cancelled, it’s ending because they always planned to wrap the story up in three seasons.
FX president John Landgraf made the announcement during the TCA Winter 2019 Press Tour, and that’s where he confirmed that series will have the natural conclusion that was always intended.
Legion is based on the Marvel Comics created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. The show follows David Haller (Dan Stevens), “a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.”
After the series was renewed for a third season, FX released the following statement:
“Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season. 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 also stars Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Hamish Linklater, and Navid Negahban.
This is such a great show and I’m sad to see that it’s coming to an end. At least it’s getting the end that was always intended for it!
Legion season three is expected to premiere in 2019.
