It’s almost time for Legion season 2, and the show’s weird-ass promo tour continues. There have been a bunch of promos since the first trailer dropped, and they are all just as vague as everything else in this show.
Next we have a season 1 recap that doesn’t really recap much at all, but are we really that surprised at this point?
Next we have a bunch of motion posters from the official Twitter account.

Next we have some new images from the second season of the show from Entertainment Weekly including a first look at Navid Negahban as Amahl Farouk, aka The Shadow King. Farouk mostly appeared as Lenny, played by Aubrey Plaza, in the first season — and while she is returning, we’re also getting another look at the character. Showrunner Noah Hawley spoke to EW about the character and what he is trying to create.
“Lenny and Oliver are being used by this character, Amahl Farouk,” Hawley said. “He wears their faces from time to time. It’s his way of hiding himself. I had this thought of, ‘What does Freddy Krueger do during the day?’ I thought it was interesting, the idea of the downtime of these characters. They’re not being used and so what is reality like for them? They’re being placated, that they’re in some place beautiful that may not actually be a physical space, it may be a mental space, like an astral plane. They have everything they need, they’re by the pool, it’s beautiful, but at a certain point, there’s part of them that realizes that they’re just trapped in this reality they don’t have any control over.”
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.
