FX renews Legion for a third season

FX has ordered a third season of Legion. There are two episodes left in the second season, including a recently announced episode. The third season is slated to return in 2019.

Created by Noah Hawley and based on the Marvel comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), who believes he’s schizophrenic only to discover he’s actually the most powerful mutant in the world. The first season showed David in several psychiatric institutions. There, he falls in love with a fellow patient and mutant Syd (Rachel Keller). David’s world is turned upside down when he realizes the magnitude of his power and the world of mutants. The series also stars Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Hamish Linklater and Navid Negahban.

Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season,” said Eric Schrier, president of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “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.”

Hawley executive produces Legion along with Nathaniel Halpern, John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Jeph Loeb. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

Legion airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm on FX.
