Eric Schrier and Nick Grad, Presidents of Original Programming at FX, praised the trippy, genre-bending series in an official press release.
Schrier stated that, “The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement. More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the super hero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of Legion.”
