FX has just released a new bunch of images from Legion, the hotly-anticipated new X-Men spin-off show that will premiere in the UK on FOX on Thursday 9 February at 9pm. And if you’re looking at these pictures and thinking, “That doesn’t look much like an X-Men series,” well, your right. We’ve seen the first episode (you can read our spoiler-lite preview here – we loved it) and it’s a very different take on the source material, courtesy of showrunner Noah Hawley, of Fargo fame.
David Haller (Dan Stevens) is a man who’s been convinced that the voices he hears and the damage he causes are a result of his schizophrenia. Other people who are after him are not so convinced that’s all that’s different about him. It’s a deeply weird, deeply disorientating show that you need to see even if it’s just so you can have an opinion on it.
