Legion to end after Season 3… but Professor X has been cast and will appear

February 5th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Bad and good news for fans of Legion, the X-Men series starring Dan Stevens as the series’ end in season 3 was announced at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour.


However, it seems it’s not due to the whole Disney/Fox thing, but rather creator Noah Hawley had always planned on a three-season arc: “I think endings are what give stories meaning,” Hawley said, “I always thought about this as a complete story, and it felt like three acts of a story.” 

“What the show is following is this cycle of mental illness. We met David [Dan Stevens] who had been at his lowest point and tried to kill himself, then he meets Syd [Rachel Keller] and he gets balanced out,” he adds, before saying: “The question now is can he get back to some kind of good place, or is he gone for good? Once we tell that story it feels like we’d be going back to the beginning of the cycle.”

It’s a fair point and makes us realise that maybe the series really did have a start, middle and end, but you can’t end the story without bringing in the daddy, literally.

Yes, Professor x himself, David’s father in the comics and here, will be making an appearance alongside David’s mother, Gabrielle. The duo will be played by Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd and Mr Robot’s Stephanie Corneliussen.

So, out with a bang, then?

Let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
