FX has greenlit a third season of “Legion,” the drama series from creator and executive producer Noah Hawley. Two episodes remain in “Legion’s” current second season, including an additional 11th episode that was recently announced.
“Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season,” said Eric Schrier, Co-President of Original Programming for FX. “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.”
Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, “Legion” is the story of 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.
