FX Renews Legion for a Second Season

Marvel has just announced via twitter that Legion has been picked up for a second season on FX.

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.”

The critically acclaimed series (based on Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz’s run on New Mutants from the mid-1980’s) combines science fiction, horror, and super hero elements to create an entertaining and mind-bending mix.  The first season consists of eight episodes and, although ratings have dipped from the debut episode, it it still one of the highest rated new programs on cable television.  If you haven’t checked out this series yet, and you are looking for something off-kilter that avoids stereotypical genre conventions, Legion may be the show for you.

Legion airs at 10:00 p.m. on Wednesdays on FX.
