Season 2 of Legion is coming up in the not so distant future. As a result, a teaser trailer for the upcoming season has been released. For those who are curious about its contents but haven’t had the chance to see it, it features Dr. Lenny Busker calling into question what the viewer knows about the series based on what they remember from Season 1, which is a very unusual way of marketing something but nonetheless wholly appropriate considering the nature of the character. After all, Dr. Busker was one of the forms that the Shadow King chose to take on in his effort to take control of David Haller, who was beaten by David and his allies but nonetheless managed to make an escape via Oliver Bird. As a result, while the character can feign friendliness, she is rather sadistic.
What Do We Know About Season 2 of Legion?
With that said, a fair amount of information has been revealed about Season 2 of Legion so far. For example, while the Shadow King encountered a setback in Season 1, he is far from having been beaten for the last time. In fact, we know that the character will be showing up in Season 2 in a truer form, seeing as how we know that he will be played by Navid Negahban. However, his exact plans remain mysterious for the time being.
Moving on, some information has been revealed about David as well. The last time that we saw him in Season 1 of Legion, he was captured by a flight-capable device of some sort, meaning that his fate was unknown. It has been revealed that Season 2 of Legion will be resuming about a year’s time after the end of Season 1, meaning that it will be interesting to see what has happened to David as well as what has happened to David’s allies over that period of time. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that the showrunner Noah Hawley has used a curious choice of words to describe what the viewers can expect from Season 2. Simply put, if Season 1 was about the story of an insane man in a sane world, then Season 2 will be the reverse of the situation, which is to say, the story of a sane man in an insane world. This makes sense, seeing as how David discovered that his mental illness was attributable to the effect of the Shadow King in his mind, though he will now be forced to deal with a much weirder world because of his experiences. On a final note, some people have been speculating about a potential appearance from David’s biological father Professor X in Season 2. However, this remains unconfirmed at this point in time, meaning that interested individuals should not become too excited by it without sufficient cause to back up said excitement.
Regardless, Season 2 of Legion will consist of a total of 10 episodes. Furthermore, said episodes will be starting up on April 3 of 2018 on FX, meaning that the upcoming season is no more than a short time in the future. As a result, interested individuals should keep a close eye on further news because as April comes closer and closer, more and more news is bound to come out.
