The X-Men characters have been very popular in comics and movies for decades. Now, FX is trying a TV series based on the Legion character. Will the Legion TV show be a big success in the ratings? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
A science-fiction drama, the Legion TV show is based on the Marvel comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. It’s the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. David was diagnosed as schizophrenic and has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. While institutionalized, he makes a quick bond with Syd (Rachel Keller). David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant. The rest of the FX series cast includes Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Jean Smart.
