We finally got our first trailer for the second season of Legion and it’s about what we expected. In that it looks beautiful, surreal, and doesn’t really explain much about the plot. Which is fine, this worked for the first season let it work for the second, and now star Dan Stevens has shared a sweet looking new poster.
That is pretty much exactly what we expect from Legion at this point. The first season was critically acclaimed and the cast and crew are looking to avoid the “sophomore slump” that has killed other shows by leaning into what made it work during the first season. It was also ignored during the award season which is a crime considering how good the show was. The first season had no hype because no one knew what to expect. This one has very high expectations. Let’s hope it’s up to the task.
Summary: David Haller is a troubled young man diagnosed as schizophrenic, but after a strange encounter, he discovers special powers that will change his life forever.
Legion, created by Noah Hawley, stars Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, and Amber Midthunder. Legion Season 2 will be released on April 3rd.
