What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FX cable channel, Legion stars Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Jean Smart. Based on the Marvel comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, the Legion TV show tells the story of David Haller (Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic in childhood, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. While institutionalized, he makes a quick bond with Syd (Keller). Soon, David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.
Season One Ratings
This sci-fi psychological drama premiered to pretty solid numbers for FX. However, Legion has seen some big drops in later episodes. Right now, I suspect FX will renew it but I may change my mind if the ratings keep dropping. 3/15 update: the Legion TV series has been renewed for season two. Details here.
