Renewed: Legion

New US drama Legion has been renewed for a second season.

An episode count is yet to be determined by FX.

The Marvel drama starring Dan Stevens is ranking second in the demo and fourth in total viewers when compared with all new US cable launches thus far in 2017.

“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement,” FX president of original programming Eric Schrier said. “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.”

Legion is currently screening in Australia on FX.

  1. This renewal is likely part of an commercial agreement as the shows plot is complex and full of Parallel Universe themes similar to The Magicians. Alternatively, perhaps American audiences are becoming more esoteric.
