FX has renewed the Marvel Comics drama Legion for a second season.
Created and executive produced by Noah Hawley, the show follows David Haller, a man who has been told his whole life that he is mentally ill, then discovers that what he thought were symptoms of his illness may actually be manifestations of a mutant superpower.
"The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement," said FX original programming co-president Eric Schrier. "More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero 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."
Adds Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb, "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."
Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Loeb, Jim Chory, and John Cameron serve as executive producers on the X-Men spinoff with Noah Hawley.
Legion stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Bill Irwin, Katie Aselton, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, and Mackenzie Grey.
Legion airs at 10pm Wednesday nights on FX.
