LEGION: David Haller Comes Face-To-Face With His Father In A New Extended Final Season Preview

Following last night's long-awaited third and final season premiere of Noah Hawley's critically-acclaimed X-Men spin-off series, Legion, FX Networks has released a trippy new season preview. Take a look...

While season three will unfortunately be the final bow for Legion, one of the most acclaimed superhero shows in recent memory, the series looks to go out with a bang as our former hero, David Haller (Dan Stevens), fully embraces his villainous side and takes his former friends on one helluva journey.

Plus, based on this new extended season preview, it looks like Haller will cross paths with his famous father at some point this season, the one-and-only Charles Xavier (Harry Lloyd). 


Chapter 21

302 7/1/2019 10 p.m. ET/PT

David prepares for a journey.

Written by Noah Hawley and Olivia Dufault & Kate Thulin; Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada


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 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: 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 he must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him being a mutant.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
