Legion’s Season 2 expands to 11 episodes!
FX has announced that Legion, the acclaimed drama series from creator and executive producer Noah Hawley, has added an 11th mind-bending episode to the originally planned 10-episode second season. The season finale is now set to air on Tuesday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET.
In tonight’s all-new episode, Chapter 13, we reach the mid-point of the season as an uneasy reunion leads to a shocking truth. The episode was written by Noah Hawley & Nathaniel Halpern and directed by Tim Mielants.
In the upcoming episodes, fans will discover what could have been, disastrous delusions, inner demons taking control, reunions & rage, and David fighting the future in the season finale.
Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion follows the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. With help from a team of specialists, David harnessed his unique abilities and learned he’d been haunted by a malicious parasite. Now, David is all that stands in the way of Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) from attaining infinite and world-ending power.
Noah Hawley serves as Executive Producer, along with John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory. Legion is the latest project from Hawley and Cameron, two of the executive producers of the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning FX anthology series Fargo. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.
Legion airs Tuesday nights on FX at 10 pm ET.
