With just under a month until the second season of Legion premieres, FX have released the longest trailer yet for the crazy X-Men series.
In the new footage, we learn that, since David’s (Dan Stevens) disappearance, his Summerland friends have joined Division 3. Along with this, we see the re-emergence of the Shadow King (Navid Negahban) who threatens everyone on his path to infinite power.
The synopsis for Season 2 reads:
“In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David’s body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host – Melanie’s husband “Oliver Bird” (Jemaine Clement) – and escaped. Just when they thought they’d earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy “Clark” (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.”
Creator Noah Hawley has also spoken about the possibility of Professor X showing up in Season 2’s ten-episode run, “I don’t know yet what that would be. It depends on who would do it. If we reach that part of the story, is it funnier if it’s the young or the old one? It could be great if you’re older than your dad.”
Legion returns on April 3rd.
