For two seasons, the FX series Legion has focused on David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. In the comics, that’s mostly because he’s the son of Professor Charles Xavier, something that has only been hinted at on the show. We haven’t seen the telepathic mutant appear on the X-Men series yet, but that will change with the show’s third and final season.
Legion has landed Harry Lloyd as Professor X, though the extent of the character’s involvement in the end of the series has yet to be revealed. Lloyd may best be known for his role on Game of Thrones as Viserys Targaryen, the corrupt, doomed brother of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen. Read More »

Noah Hawley has been busy this year. Season two of Legion was on in the Spring. He directed the movie Pale Blue Dot starring Natalie Portman FX just announced he was making a fourth season of Fargo with Chris Rock, and there’s that Doctor Doom movie that’s in the works. On top of all that, Hawley still had time to crank out scripts for the third season of the FX series Legion.
Based on the character from X-Men comics, Legion tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens) discovering his powers. He was committed to an institution because his family thought the powers he struggled to exhibit were mental episodes. There, Melanie Bird (Jean Smart) rescued him to help him learn to use his mutant powers. In season two, he did battle with Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) but it compromised his relationships with those he loved like Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller) and his sister Amy (Katie Aselton).
During an FX reception for the Television Critics Association, FX CEO John Landgraf revealed to /Film that Hawley is hard at work on the third season of Legion, and it sounds like things are going to get very dark for David Haller. Read More »

The Legion panel, the last Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year, had several panelists including producer and writer Nathaniel Halpern, executive producer and director John Cameron, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb, and cast members Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder, Jeremie Harris, Jean Smart, and Farouk himself, Navid Negahban.
One person noticeably missing was show creator Noah Hawley, who, according to the Comic-Con schedule, was supposed to be a panelist. Even if Hawley had been there, however, there likely would have been little additional insight as to what may take place in Season 3, which FX confirmed will air in 2019.
