FX has just announced that the X-Men spinoff series Legion will be back for a second season. The show is just now finishing up its initial eight-episode run so this is a great sign that it won’t be a on-off thing.
The series is actually great, and I think it’s even better than the most recent Legion run in the comics. While it apparently exists in a parallel universe to the movie X-Men canon, it does a great job brining the mutants to the small screen. Big Fox’s Gifted will likely be a lot more traditional and accessible than Legion, but FX’s series is really good so far.
There’s no word on when the second season will kick off or if it’ll clock in at more than eight episodes just yet.
