Legion confirmed to end with season three


Legion, one of television’s weirdest and most insane comic book properties existing in television or film right now, is about to come to an end with its upcoming third season.

As reported by Deadline, FX network boss John Landgraf confirmed that the third season of Legion will also be its final season on the network. The reasoning isn’t that the show is being cancelled by FX, but rather creator Noah Hawley always sought to end it after the third season.

For those who have never seen Legion, it is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name and stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, the eponymous Legion. After attempting suicide and then being admitted to a mental institution, he discovers that the voices he hears are not just his schizophrenia, but he also has powers. While Legion started out in its first season as an odd, stylized show, in its second season it evolved into one of the weirdest, mind-bending shows on the air.

One of the main draws of the show was that its main character was depicted with a mental illness, which the show also derived most of its style from, so it will be sad to see a show that centers on mental illnesses in an almost un-stigmatized way, it’s good that Hawley is able to end the show like he wants to in the end, which will probably be the weirdest that the show will be.

Legion was renewed for a third season just before the second season aired its finale. The third and final season is set to premiere sometime this spring, but no official airdate has been announced for the premiere.
