TOMATOMETER

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 (36) | Top Critics (10)

A brilliant piece of television.

Apr 13, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

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.

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…

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.

Aug 27, 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…

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.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 2

Weird and intelligent, takes the core elements from the first series and dials it up to 11.
