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.
Bright is Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s next project and will be coming to Netflix in December. The film reteams Ayer with Suicide Squad star Will Smith and is also headlined by Joel Edgerton (The Gift, Exodus: Gods and Kings) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus).
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds.

Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
The Netflix original film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.

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.

The world is turning upside down on Halloween.
Season two of Stranger Things will make its debut on Netflix on the spooky holiday.
The release date was announced in a Super Bowl spot for the show, which built a cult following after its summer 2016 debut.
The show, created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, takes place in a small town in Indiana in 1983, just after a 12-year-old boy named Will goes missing. His friends and mom Joyce (played by Winona Ryder), spend much of the eight-episode series trying to find him. In the process, they encounter top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl named Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown).
The Super Bowl ad featured footage from a classic Eggo commercial that debuted in 1979 and aired in the ’80s. According to a description from Netflix, Season 2 is set a year after Will’s return.
“A year after Will’s return, everything seems back to normal,” Netflix said in a release. “But a darkness lurks just beneath the surface, threatening all of Hawkins.”
