LEGION Gets A Summer Premiere Date For Its Third And Final Season

FX and Marvel Television have officially announced the eagerly-awaited premiere date for the third and final season of Legion, which will see Dan Stevens reprise his role as the all-powerful mutant.

Marvel Television and FX Networks officially announced today that the critically-acclaimed Legion will return for its long-awaited third and final season on Monday, June 24. 

Following the shocking events of last season's finale, which saw David Haller (Dan Stevens) unmasked as the series' true villain, the new year will presumably pickup with David and his new partner-in-crime Lenny Busker (Aubrey Plaza) on the run and hatching a new plot while Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller), the Shadow King (Navid Negahban), and everyone at Summerland work to find a way to take down the omega-level mutant before it's too late. 

The new season will also introduce Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones) as Professor X and Stephanie Corneliussen (DC's Legends of Tomorrow) as David's mother, Gabrielle. 

Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens) – a troubled young man who may be more than human.

Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which he must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
