“Legion” Renewed for Season 3 at FX

FX just handed out a third-season order for Legion, ahead of season 2 conclusion. 

The news of the renewal was announced by the network Friday. 

The comic book drama still has two more episodes in its sophomore year. Originally planned as a ten-episode season, an additional episode was recently added, making it a total of eleven. 

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. “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.”

Helmed by Noah Hawley, and based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, the series follows David Haller, played by Dan Stevens, who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.

The series also stars Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Hamish Linklater, and Navid Negahban.

Legion Season 3 is currently slated to air in 2019.
