Legion is an American television series created for FX by Noah Hawley, based on the Marvel Comics character David Haller / Legion. It is produced by FX Productions in association with Marvel Television. Hawley is the showrunner.
Dan Stevens stars as Haller, a "mutant" diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, and Jean Smart also star, along with Katie Aselton during the first season; Navid Negahban, Jemaine Clement, and Hamish Linklater join the starring cast for the second season; and Lauren Tsai joins the cast for the third season. The show follows Haller as he tries to control his mutant powers and the sinister forces trying to control them while evading a government agency. FX and Marvel Television announced a new collaboration to create a television series based on the Marvel Comics character Legion in October 2015, with Hawley signed on to write and direct the pilot. He wanted to show Haller as an "unreliable narrator", including mixing 1960s design with modern-day elements, and filming the series through the title character's distorted view of reality.
The eight-episode first season of Legion aired from February to March 2017. An eleven-episode second season aired from April to June 2018. The eight-episode third and final season premiered on June 24, 2019. A total of 27 episodes aired over three seasons. All three seasons received universal acclaim for their distinct narrative structure and visual style, as a unique approach to the superhero genre.
