Production of the second season of the mind-bending marvel series Legion hasn't yet begun but we've already been given details about it after the show's panel at the San Diego Comic-con.
Firstly , there will be more episodes this time round. While season 1 had just 8 , this one will be expanded to 10 episodes . John Solberg, the network’s executive vice-president of communications, also announced production will begin in early 2018.
Said Taghmaoi ,seen recently in another comic book outing Wonder Woman, will be joining the fray as the villainous Shadow king , a character who can possess the bodies of humans and will this season by played by Taghmaoi and returning cast members Aubrey Plaza and Jermaine Clement.
According to IndieWire, Hawley said that main character and psychic David, who was trapped inside a flying orb last time we saw him, "will obviously have to find his way back to the others".
The romantic relationship between David and Sydney is still the heart of the show but Hawley stated that “If Season 1 was the honeymoon, then in Season 2 they’re going to have to figure out how this will actually work.”
Marvel aficionados might know that the character of Legion is actually the son of Professor X, the leader of the X-Men. Hawley was asked if he would appear in the show "On some level it depends on who would do it,” he answered. “And when we reach that part of the story, is it funnier if he’s older or younger than his dad?
The showrunner also announced he's currently developing a movie based on the Marvel comic book character Doctor Doom, but gave little details about the project.
Legion will return to our small screens in 2018.
