‘Legion’ Season 2 Books April Premiere With Trippy First Photo
Just when you thought you’d gotten your mind right, Marvel’s FX Legion is ready to scramble it all over again. The long-awaited second season has officially booked an early April premiere, offering a new look at David Haller’s fractured viewpoint.
Even as we’d already seen a few snippets of footage, FX at last confirmed that Legion Season 2 will bow on Tuesday, April 3 at 10:00 P.M. The full synopsis also teases a surprising resolution to the first year’s cliffhanger:
In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David’s body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host – Melanie’s husband “Oliver Bird” (Jemaine Clement) – and escaped. Just when they thought they’d earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy “Clark” (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.
Elsewhere of the ten-episode Season 2, we last saw David (Dan Stevens) abducted into a mysterious orb that might be the “Equinox” mentioned by Division III. Creator Noah Hawley also previously spoke to the possibility of seeing Professor X in Season 2, saying “I don’t know yet what that would be. It depends on who would do it. If we reach that part of the story, is it funnier if it’s the young or the old one? It could be great if you’re older than your dad.” The next run also recast Season 1 big bad Amahl Farouk with Homeland alum Navid Negahban, as Said Taghmaoui left the project.
We’ll have more on Legion’s return soon, so watch the footage below and stay tuned for the latest on Season 2.
