Geekery: Charles Xavier Finally Makes an Appearance in ‘Legion’
The first preview for the show’s final season focuses on a character a lot of us have been waiting for – David’s dad.
The most unabashedly weird show on TV is returning this summer. Last season pushed audiences’ understanding of the boundaries of reality and time. The show has always had tendrils connected to the X-Men, the new trailer digs into the past and solidifies the connection.
While watching the last two seasons I kept wondering who was the first at FX to say yes to the show when it was pitched. It’s really unconventional, and it asks a lot of its audience – two things TV execs tend to avoid, especially networks that aren’t in the premium tier. I’m glad we’re getting a final season to wrap the story up, and I hope execs and studio heads take more chances on projects like this.
