FX have revealed today that they’ve ordered a second season of Legion, one of their latest critically-acclaimed new drama series, based on Marvel Comics and from Noah Hawley. As one of the most-watched new cable dramas of the past 12 months, the news comes as no surprise.
President of Original Programming, Eric Schrier comments: “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.”
Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb adds: “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.”
Legion continues with Episode 6 on Thursday, March 16 at 9pm on FOX, and every Thursday thereafter.
