Great news for fans of the FX series ‘Legion’ this morning. The show has officially been renewed for a second season. With season one still on the air it is expected that season two will premiere in 2018.
In a statement to the press FX Presidents of Original Programming Nick Grad and Eric Schrier spoke of their delight at the series success.
The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement, 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 is a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of Legion.
Those sentiments were echoed by Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.
We are thrilled there will be a new season of LEGION. Noahs spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We are particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.
‘Legion’ is the brainchild of Noah Hawley (FX’s Fargo), the eight episode first season draws to a close on March 29th in the US. The show airs on FX at 10PM ET/PT.
