FX has announced that they’re critically acclaimed Marvel series LEGION from Noah Hawley, has been renewed for a second season!

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, LEGION tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming at FX Networks and FX Productions said:

“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’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.”

Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television said:

“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.”

Hawley will remain as executive producer on season 2 along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. LEGION is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.
