Legion is an upcoming TV series inspired from the world of X-Men from the FX Network, Marvel Television and executive producer Noah Hawley (Fargo). It stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart. The eight-episode first season will debut on FX in early 2017.
Since he was a teenager, David Haller (Dan Stevens) has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.
“Marvel Television is thrilled to not only have our first partnership with FX go to series, but working with the enormously talented Noah Hawley makes it even better. From the first time we heard Noah’s vision to his exceptional script and cast through the extraordinary filming of the pilot, we knew the series would be incredible.” said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel TV, Jeph Loeb.
