If you haven't been watching Legion, you're completely missing out on one of the best series on TV. I love this show and how unique and different it is from any of the other series out there right now.
I'm happy to announce that FX has officially renewed the Marvel series for a second season, so we'll get to see the story of these fantastic and complicated characters continue. Fargo's Noah Hawley has been developing the series, and he's done such a great job. He'll be back to guide the show into its second season.
Deadline reports that season two is expected to debut in 2018 and will consist of at least eight episodes, but that has yet to be confirmed. Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, and Katie Aselton are also set to return. FX’s Eric Schrier said in a statement:
“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement. More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the superhero 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."
Executive producer and Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb added:
“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.”
The first season comes to a close on March 29th, and I already can't wait to see what season two has in store for these characters.
