When a show breaks narrative convention as much as FX’s Legion, in which entire episodes can take place during a split second, there’s only one way to possibly end it: by introducing time travel. Legion introduces Switch (Lauren Tsai) to help David Haller (Dan Stevens) conclude his journey.
Season three of Legion will be its last, but creator Noah Hawley is ending it on his own terms. David is seeking a time traveler to help him correct mistakes he’s made in the past, especially in his relationship with Syd (Rachel Keller), but also to stop Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) once and for all.

Even though Dark Phoenix was the final installment of the X-Men franchise on the big screen, the legacy of the mutants, as they existed under the 20th Century Fox banner, still has one more breath to take.
The third and final season of the FX series Legion continues to the story of the mentally ill telekinetic mutant David Haller, who just might be the most powerful being on the planet. That’s a problem when he’s also mentally unstable, and the third season will bring his greatest challenge yet: fixing the past. Watch the Legion season 3 featurette to see how that will play out.

Legion, creator/showrunner Noah Hawley‘s trippy, hallucinatory exploration of the inner workings of a mutant’s mind, wasn’t made for casual viewing. It’s the type of show that demands your attention, rewards you with things you’ve never seen on TV before, and makes you appreciate the executives at FX who signed the checks for Hawley to make something so bonkers.
A perfect example: it’s a show in which characters ask questions like, “How do you surprise someone who can go back in time and warn himself?” Insert Keanu Reeves “whoa” gif here. Steel your minds for one more season of this mind-bending series and check out the new Legion season 3 trailer below. Read More »

I could try to describe the clip that kicked off Friday night’s Legion WonderCon panel. I could attempt to explain how creator Noah Hawley uses colors, how Lauren Tsai’s character, Switch, moves around her world wearing bright red headphones and a yellow fur-like coat. Or I could talk about how the scene’s different languages and sounds are integral to Switch and her surroundings, whether she’s listening to a voice giving her time travel lessons, telling her things like, “The present is not just a date, it’s a feeling;” “Nostalgia is your enemy,” and; “Time is a jungle filled with monsters,” or hearing the static of the radio as she tries to tune in to station 89.1 to find out about an orange fish.
Or maybe I could mention how she’s following the advice listed on flyers stapled to telephone poles, flyers that tell her to find the pregnant virgin and to not trust the mustache. Or that she ends up following a red double decker bus full of women in bright yellow dresses to a place odder than the oddest clothing store you could imagine, where reality bends like a kaleidoscope and employees burst into song as she crawls through a human-sized hamster tube that tunnels through different planes of existence.
Or maybe I could just sit there, slack-jawed and wide-eyed as I clutch the discordantly mundane Legion baseball cap that each audience member received to my chest. Legion is entering its third and final season, and we’re in store for another unbelievable experience.
