New ‘Legion’ Season 2 Teaser Is As Strange As You’d Expect

LegionFX’s Legion is nothing if not mind-bending. The X-Men series had a remarkable first season, which was met with critical acclaim. However, this is no surprise with Fargo’s Noah Hawley at the reigns. The trippy and often terrifying series was left on a cliffhanger during the finale’s mid-credits scene. We’ve all been aching to find out just what it means. Luckily, the new teaser sheds a little light.

The mid-credits scene saw Dan Stevens’ David Haller, Professor X’s son and perhaps the world’s most powerful mutant, trapped inside a mysterious floating orb. With little to go on, fans have been wildly speculating what this could mean for the second season. The teaser below, brief as it may be, does drop a few hints. It focuses primarily on Syd, played by Rachel Keller, as her narration explains her concerns for the now-missing David. The last thing we see before the logo appears is David’s Face trapped in that same orb, screaming for help. This does seem to confirm that the orb in question is some sort of prison. However, we still aren’t sure just who is responsible for it.

Do you have any idea who could have trapped David? Is this more of Shadow King’s games? Tell us your theories in the comments below!

Based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, “Legion” is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.

From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. Syd led David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a demanding but nurturing therapist who heads a team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – each of whom possesses a unique and extraordinary gift. Together, they helped David to recognize and harness his hidden powers. With their support, David finally unlocked a deeply suppressed truth – he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power. Known as the Shadow King, this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David’s friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), but is actually an ancient being named Amahl Farouk.

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.

Legion Season 2 premieres April 3, 2018 on FX.

Legion Things See Second Season
The X-men Film universe has been expanding and finding new ways of doing so especially with last year’s Deadpool and this year’s Logan. With these films doing so well it’s an interesting time to sort of bring the universe in some way to television and with FX’s Legion they did just that. Not only did they bring it to television they told a completely original story and easily created one of the best superhero shows of all time. With the brilliant writing, the trippy visuals, and the outstanding performances, Legion proves how successful it is and I think it’s a series that could go on for quite some time. After the season finale a lot of questions have been left unanswered and there is a lot of potential for the series. With these burning questions in addition to wants from the show it’s a good opportunity to look at what we would like to see moving forward in a second season. This article contains Spoilers.
