Fans may have to wait longer to find out about the fate of David Haller. FX’s Legion will not be returning for season 2 until April.
That is two months later than its expected date. The first season had debuted on Feb. 8, 2017.
The show was developed by Noah Hawley and this series is based on Marvel’s David Haller. He is a mentally ill and powerful son of Charles Xavier. David had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and had spent his life in mental institutions. The first season had unfolded that he had been possessed since childhood by Amahl Farouk, Shadow King. Legion stars Dan Stevens as the main character.
In the season finale, Shadow King had been freed from David’s body and David had teleported into a mechanical orb.
During Legion presentation at Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Hawley had revealed that Season 2 will be picking up after a year from the events of its finale.
“If the first year was the story of an insane man in a sane world, then I was interested in looking at David now being the sane man in an insane world,” he said.
“We’ve established he doesn’t have schizophrenia and he has these abilities. There is this time jump, for him to come back and suddenly the world is a very different place. I was interested this year in looking at a mass psychology. Mental illness can also be cultural in a way so those issues were interesting to me. We’re also exploring with Dan, he’s on a journey here in which in the language of this world, you have heroes and villains. It’s not determined yet where he’s going to end up.”
