Legion Season 2 Will Return To FX In 2018

FX has just revealed that Legion season 2 is on the way! The critically acclaimed Marvel drama series hails from Noah Hawley, the creative force behind FX’s hit Fargo. Legion marks one of the most-watched new cable dramas of the past year.

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion tells the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” reads a statement from Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “More than a new series, ‘Legion’ is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of ‘Legion’.”

“We are thrilled there will be a new season of ‘Legion’,” says Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television.”Noah’s spectacular take on David Haller and all the other characters he brought to life makes us ache for more. We’re particularly proud of our partners at FX and the success we share on our first TV series together.”

Hawley will continue as Executive Producer on Legion season 2, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron. Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.

Comedian Louis C.K. just closed a production deal with FX to develop, write and direct new comedy pilots.

FX Productions announced the deal Tuesday with Louis C.K. and his production company Pig Newton. The deal is unrelated to the FX series Louie, which will return in May of 2014.

“Working with Louis C.K. has been one of the most rewarding and enjoyable experiences of my career,” said FX CEO John Landgraf said in a statement. “I am thrilled that our relationship with Louis and Blair Breard will continue for the foreseeable future through this deal with FXP. So many incredibly talented artists want to work with Louis and follow down the independent and idiosyncratic creative trail he has blazed. I can’t wait to see who he brings through our door, not to mention any new projects that he wants to create for us.”
