From Marvel, the sci-fi drama centers on David Haller (Dan Stevens), the troubled son of Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) who may be more than human. The cast also includes Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Jean Smart.
Per TVLine, Navid Negahban has been cast as the big villain for season two, Ahmal Farouk, aka the Shadow King. Additionally, showrunner Noah Hawley told Deadline executive producer Bryan Singer has been removed from the Legion credits amid allegations of sexual misconduct.
Bryan asked to take his name off the show, so we have done that. … Very early on in the conception of the show, I met him a couple of times. He was interested in directing the pilot, but once I stepped in to direct, I haven’t spoken to him since that moment. Really, he was a name on the screen.”
Though we don’t have specific day yet, season two of Legion will debut on FX in April.
