The X-Men spin-off follows Charles Xavier’s son David Haller aka Legion (Dan Stevens), and his life as a patient in a psychiatric institution. Legion is an Omega-level mutant.
The series looks to have a surreal, and off-beat sense of humor, different from what X-men fans might be expecting from a live-action Marvel production.
Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, and Aubrey Plaza, are also featured in the series.
The series is filmed in Vancouver, Canada and is set for a 8 episode season 1.
Legion (2017) the TV series is not to be confused with Legion (2010) the movie.
