Legion Renewed for Second Season

The freshman season of Legion hasn’t finished airing, but FX has already renewed it for a second season, according to Variety. Legion is a Marvel Comics-inspired drama starring Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation). The first six episodes have already aired and the show has been getting high praise for its innovative storytelling techniques. It follows the story of David Haller (Stevens), who has been told his whole life that he is mentally ill, but his symptoms might actually be a form of mutant superpowers. LEGION -- "Chapter 5" – Season 1, Episode 5 (Airs Wednesday, March 8, 10:00 pm/ep) -- Pictured: Dan Stevens as David Haller. CR: Michelle Faye/FX The show is created and executive produced by Noah Hawley, who is also the showrunner of another critically acclaimed FX show, Fargo. Legion isn’t the only television show that takes place in the Marvel Universe, but it is the first one based on a character from the X-Men comics. It will be interesting to see where Legion goes now that it will definitely have another season to expand on its story.
