The sixth episode airs tonight.
Legion, the FX show where the cast weren't sure what it was about, has been renewed for a second season, just halfway through the first season. The show is based on the Marvel comic of the same name and stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, who traditionally is the son of Professor X, although the Professor doesn't appear in the show. In the show, Haller is suffering from A. Schizophrenia B. Crazy-powerful psychic and telekinetic mutant powers or C. All of the above. The series is obtuse at times, as Hawley and Co. have taken a surrealistic approach to the material that results in something more like a David Lynch film than a traditional superhero series.
Legion airs Wednesdays on FX and stars Stevens, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Plaza, Katie Aselton, Bill Irwin, and Jean Smart. The first season runs eight episodes and no details about the second season have been released beyond it airing in 2018.
