FX Orders 8 Episodes of X-Men TV Show

The show will debut in 2017.


Undaunted by the critical panning of X-Men Apocalypse, vowel-less Fox spinoff FX has ordered an eight episode season of Legion, one of two X-Men TV shows currently in the works. The show is described by a press release thusly:

"Legion" introduces the story of David Haller: Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he's confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.


What are those voices and visions of? The theatrical release of X-Men Apocalypse. Oh god! The humanity!

The rest of the press release is basically a three paragraph list of various actors, producers, writers, and other spuriously functioning executives that are involved with the show. Suffice to say that a lot of people who have worked on other TV shows in the past are now working on this TV show. Legion will debut on FX in early 2017. Here's a picture of star Dan Stevens looking sullen:
