When To Expect Legion Season 2

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Legion season one.

You can finally exhale, Legion fans. We finally know when the second chapter of the psychedelic X-Men-centric series will begin. (Well, we have a ballpark estimation, that is.)

During the FX network presentation at the 2018 Television Critics Association press tour this week (via ScreenRant), Legion creator Noah Hawley confirmed that season two will premiere this April. Unfortunately, he didn't dish up a specific date or offer any new information about the upcoming season's plot. 

Viewers are likely dying to know what happens next, since the season one finale ended on a major cliffhanger: Lenny Busker (Aubrey Plaza) and Oliver (Jemaine Clement) run off together, while David Haller (Dan Stevens) gets pulled into a mysterious orb in the sky. 

Here's the series' official synopsis: "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 20's and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of daily life: 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 David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real."

The series also features Bill Irwin as Cary Loudermilk, a mutant scientist; Jeremie Harris as Ptonomy Wallace, a so-called "memory artist" with an incredible ability to bring people back to their former thoughts; Amber Midthunder as Kerry Loudermilk, a savant mutant; Katie Aselton as Amy Haller, David's older sister; and Jean Smart as Melanie Bird, a psychiatric therapist with a stern personality.

Legion season two will consist of eight episodes, the same as the first season.
