The new trailer for FX's Legion teases some of what the upcoming Season 2 plot is going to explore.
The footage begins by teasing the mystery surrounding David Haller's disappearance, as well as a dance number featuring Lenny Busker and Oliver Bird. The promo also hints at some tension between Syd Barrett and David. Actor Navid Negahban makes his debut as the Shadow King, telling David, "She lives in the future you're going to destroy, and when you do she will cease to exist" The "she" he references is likely Syd.
Developed by Hawley (Fargo), Legion is based on Marvel Comics character David Haller, the mentally ill — and immensely powerful — son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier. Legion stars Dan Stevens as David, who was diagnosed at an early age with schizophrenia and spent much of his life in and out of mental institutions. However, as the first season unfolded, he learned that he isn’t mentally ill but had instead been possessed since childhood by Amahl Farouk, the psychic parasite known as the Shadow King. In the Season 1 finale, the Shadow King was freed from David’s body and unleashed into the world, and David teleported into a mysterious mechanical orb and taken away.
Premiering April 3 on FX, Legion's 10-episode Season 2 stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, Rachel Keller as Syd Barrett, Amber Midthunder as Kerry Loudermilk, Aubrey Plaza as Lenny Busker, Bill Irwin as Cary Loudermilk, Jeremie Harris as Ptonomy Wallace, Jean Smart as Dr. Melanie Bird and Jemaine Clement as Oliver Bird
