FX has renewed Legion for a third season, according to a tweet from the network.
Creator and Executive Producer Noah Hawley used the comics as a jumping off point for the series, creating his own mythology. In a statement, FX Networks and FX Productions president of original programming Eric Schrier had this to say:
"Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season. We are incredibly proud of Noah Hawley's achievement and are honored to continue the series as it pushes the boundaries of conventional television storytelling. We are also grateful for the contributions of our executive producers, John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Jeph Loeb with Marvel Television, as well as our outstanding cast and crew of this groundbreaking show."
Currently airing its second season, Legion stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, and Bill Irwin.
