FX has ordered a second season of its X-Men adjacent series, Legion.
Hours before the premiere of series’ sixth episode, FX’s Eric Schrier and Nick Grad announced that Noah Hawley’s critically acclaimed show will be returning to the small screen.
In a statement, Schrier 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.”
Legion airs on Fox, here in the UK, on Thursday evenings. The episodes then head over to Now TV.
