Tv Season Info

In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David's body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host -- Melanie's husband "Oliver Bird" (Jemaine Clement) -- and escaped. Just when they thought they'd earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy "Clark" (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Critic Reviews for Legion Season 2

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (10)

A brilliant piece of television.

Apr 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion insists that it has lots to tell us about who we are, but it's worth watching, mainly, to understand what it is.

Apr 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a dark, trippy corner of that universe, where time moves more slowly, but it's filled with moments and images you'll find nowhere else.

But it's a bold vision for a genre where conflict usually boils down to muscular guys beating on each other. And it's what makes this season of Legion among the most subversive television you'll see this year.

I think it's a doozy. It certainly looked very nice, and the performances were all terrific. As for what actually happened in it? That's less clear.

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Yet Legion shows true growth for the series, providing audiences with an even more uncanny look at the X-Men.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The sophomore installment of Legion is sort of like the Muppet Babies version of David Lynch - perhaps more so than ever before, with a musical dance sequence to rival that of the first.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion may not be the deepest show on television, but it is the most multi-layered, and far and away the most lavish.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion has grown from "just" the most visually inventive show on television, to become a brilliant yet terrifying story about what it really means to entrust the fate of the universe in the hands of an unreliable protagonist with unlimited powers.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Legion continues to distinguish itself from its source material through both its underlying themes and it's signature visual style.

Jul 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It is great news for fans of superhero and fantasy stories in general that there is entertainment as rare as 'Legion' out there. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Either way, David going full tilt is an interesting place for the show (however unconvincingly it got there), because it opens up the narrative scope for season 3.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 2

  • Dec 03, 2019
    "Legions" strives to push forward the limits of mainstream television. Even if it is uneven and sometimes fails to deliver satysfaing conclusions, one must admit that it has impeccable sense of aesthetics and narrative.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    Love this series and a great ending to S2!!
  • Oct 02, 2019
    Loved this to the core until the end. The story falls apart for me. Still love this for it's visuals and original story telling!
  • Sep 01, 2019
    A little confusing at times but all comes good and makes sense in the last few episodes. Again some great tv work with astonishing moments that give viewers a new dimension in story telling
  • Aug 24, 2019
    Absolutely genius! One of the best comic book adaptations and most unique and original series you'll ever see.
  • Aug 02, 2019
    Season 2 is just as good as season 1, hard to follow at times, but that adds the flavor. Those who gave it's a low score are those who need cookie cutter generic trash
  • Jul 24, 2019
    Best Marvel tv show by a Legion sized number..
  • May 21, 2019
    Really solid finale.
  • May 12, 2019
    Like most shows, it's not as good as season one, but it's still great. This season tried a slightly newer style, which I respect, although, it failed me a few times. The first season focused on David losing his mind while everyone around him tried to help, whereas this season focuses on everyone losing their mind with no one to help. The plot is still great, and the characters are still the same, but this show just pushes the whole "as confusing as possible" premise a little too far. Despite its downs, the season has far greater horror, even more unique action (and dance fights), and a just as amazing season finale as the last one. I'm still extremely excited for season 3.

    One of the greatest tv show ever made. Story and cinematography is so amazing and the cast members are also good.
