LOS ANGELES: FX has ordered a second season of Legion, one of the most-watched new cable dramas of the past year.
The drama comes from Noah Hawley, is written by Nathaniel Halpern and directed by Hiro Murai. Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, will return in 2018.
“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” said Eric Schrier, co-resident of original programming at FX Networks and FX Productions. “More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the superhero 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.”
