Legion Season 2: What we Know So Far

Legion is a collaboration between FX Productions and Marvel Television. For those who are curious, it is not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead, it is connected to the X-Men film franchise, which is still being run by 20th Century Fox at the moment.
