LEGION Season 2 Trailer is as Weird as You Remember

LEGION Season 2 Trailer is as Weird as You Remember

You can never quite trust your senses when watching Legion, FX’s original series that exists within an X-Men-adjacent universe. David Haller may be one of the most powerful mutants alive, but he’s not exactly the picture of mental stability. At the end of last season, David was seemingly sucked into a tiny metal ball and abducted. It’s anyone’s guess whether it really happened, but David is back in the first trailer for Legion season two. And while David can’t quite say where he’s been, he’s got some very vivid memories about a dance sequence, which looks hilariously bizarre.

The new trailer also introduces the new Shadow King (who looks a lot like his comic book counterpart) and sets up the story for the 10-episode second season. According to the new footage, the Shadow King has found a way to expand his influence in the real world and infect people with his mind. The “infection” appears to have its own physical form in this footage, as it slides towards a potential victim.

While showrunner Noah Hawley has kept a lot of David’s comic book roots intact, the trailer also teases a story that is going off in its own direction. David has been warned about a threat that could mean “the end of everything.” Even David’s closest allies aren’t sure he’s up for the challenge, but Syd gives him at least a halfhearted vote of confidence. It’s the most she can give, since Syd doesn’t believe David’s love can save either one of them.

Legion season 2 will premiere on Tuesday, April 3 on FX.
