Legion to end with season 3

"I think endings are what give stories meaning," says creator Noah Hawley.

Legion‘s upcoming third season, expected in June, is set to be its last says creator Noah Hawley.

“I think endings are what give stories meaning,” Hawley told reporters. “I always thought about this as a complete story, and it felt like three acts of a story.

“What the show is following is this cycle of mental illness. We met David [Dan Stevens] who had been at his lowest point and tried to kill himself, then he meets Syd [Rachel Keller] and he gets balanced out. He’s on his meds. He gets out and everything’s going great for a while, and he thinks maybe I don’t need these meds. He goes off meds the and spirals down, which is where we find him now,” Hawley said. “The question now is can he get back to some kind of good place, or is he gone for good? Once we tell that story it feels like we’d be going back to the beginning of the cycle.”

However, executive producer and Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb, said, “From Marvel’s point of view, Noah told us the end of the story when he told us the beginning of the story. These characters, some of which are part of the Marvel library, will live on. I think of it as if this is the end of this graphic novel. If Noah came back to us in a day or a year, we hope that FX would want to tell the next story.”

It screens in Australia on FOX Showcase.

  1. While I understand this show isn’t for everyone it really resonated with me, especially the narrated mini parts that Jon Hamm did. While I will miss this quirky trippy show when it ends it is nice to see a creator say it’s time and the studios go along with the decision … kudos.
