FX announced today that Legion has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes with two episodes remaining in the superhero drama's sophomore run, which comes to a close on June 12.
Legion is one the latest Marvel Comics-based entries on television and was the first of its kind on a cable network, after other Marvel-based fare found success in recent years on both broadcast TV and Netflix. While its viewership took a hit in Season 2, the show continued to garner widespread critical acclaim for its unique take on the genre.
The series follows a man diagnosed with schizophrenia who comes to realize that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him actually being a mutant. Now working with a team of specialists, he is able to explore an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
Look for Season 3 of Legion in 2019.
