Tv Season Info

"Legion" focuses on "David Haller," a troubled young man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child. Shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next, in his early 30s, David met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named "Syd." After a startling encounter with her, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. With the help of Syd and a team of specialists who also possess unique and extraordinary gifts ? "Ptonomy Wallace", "Kerry Loudermilk" and "Cary Loudermilk" ? David unlocked a deeply suppressed truth: he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power.

Critic Reviews for Legion Season 3

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (7)

Even if "Legion" isn't the sum of its parts, some of those parts are spectacular on their own.

Legion uses visuals, editing, music and sound better than almost any series on television. And I don't just mean any series now -- I mean ever.

Jun 21, 2019 | Full Review…

Season Two wandered aimlessly until not even the pretty pictures were enough to justify the muddled storytelling. This third and final season mostly returned to that original, effective balance.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

As always, Legion is dazzling on a visual level. It plays with frame ratio, color, mood, tone, and sound with wild abandon. This season gave us entrancing sequences.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

With three seasons and barely 30 episodes, Legion was nothing if not a feat of visual artistry, a meditation on the human mind that necessitated engaging our own in order to participate.

Dec 12, 2019 | Full Review…

It's a marvel just how ambitious this series is, and how it so expertly weaves between disparate character and story arcs while still feeling polished.

Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A zany, well stylized and brilliantly shot series as we've come to expect, but I have to say the ending was a little anti-climactic...

Sep 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Legion wasn't ever going to be a show with a traditional happy ending. But maybe this is as close as it gets.

Aug 14, 2019 | Full Review…

I responded to moments of Legion because I vibed with its project, but all of the aspects of that project ended up working better in other shows.

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Legion's third season premiere is as quirky and whimsical as you want it to be.

Jul 22, 2019 | Rating: 7.3 | Full Review…

If this first episode is any indication, we are in for a wild ride during the final season of FX's Legion.

Jul 22, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I know Legion has never been afraid to get silly, but I laughed every single time the tactical assault team pulled out a giant hook to grab that guy. Every. Single. Time.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 3

  • Jan 29, 2021
    The best TV show I've honestly ever seen
  • Dec 08, 2020
    Probably the weirdest season, but what can you expect from an X-Men show written by Noah Hawley? The ending was beautiful and couldn't have been better. I was shocked and in deep awe at the route Hawley chose, but it was perfect. The new faces were very welcome. A great and almost perfect ending to a great and almost perfect show.
  • Oct 12, 2020
    While it wrapped up all the loose ends by the end and there were moments that were really cool, it just doesn't seem worth it.

    a perfect ending for a almost perfect series, 10/10

    I feel about legion seasons 2 and 3 very much how I felt about the the Matrix sequels; whereas the Matrix explored philosophical ideas using an engaging story and interesting characters, the reloaded/revolutions sequels featured a lot of people talking psychobabble about philosophy, tacked to an increasing reliance on CGI and big fight scenes to tell a story that didn't hang together or make sense. This is the same here. Season 2 of legion was a mess; a long, drawn out, boring mess that did nothing of substance to further the plot of the excellent season 1, and didn't even explain what happened to David at the end of S1. Season 3 has the same problem, albeit stripped down to only 8 episodes; nevertheless, I found myself doing other things whilst watching it in the background, there was so little to engage me in the story. To be fair, the stylish production has never wavered, but style over substance is not the way to tell a story that had clearly run out of ideas. I also found the character motivations to be questionable; the turnaround of David's character was unconvincing in season 2 and the hippy colony plot in season 3 is pathetic and silly. The one bright spark in this mess is the introduction of switch (great debut role for Lauren Tsai) and the time travel ideas; unfortunately, this never really gets explored/explained in any great detail, and the ending is just flat. The other characters in this season basically get sidelined and there is a criminal under use of Amber Midthunder who seems to have been written into a never ending series of fight sequences (a la Kill Bill) as if they couldn't think of a role for her in seasons 2 and 3. The introduction of David's parents is drawn out and not really explored that well; it feels again as though they've been thrown in the mix because the writers couldn't htink of where to go next. Amahl Farouk basically gets to repeat the same role he had in season 2 with no real expansion of the character and in the end he just stops. And what happened to Lenny? This isn't explained either. Again, one of the best actresses on the show is under used, side lined, forgotten about conveniently at the end. Where, as I say, the show just stops. I found the conclusion to be one of the most disappointing ever (after LOST) but it wasn't much of a surprise after a pretty boring third season.

    Almost perfect show. Casting, score, story, direction, special effects. The action/fighting scenes are hard to watch they're so bad.

    Tan extraña como siempre.

    Its a piece of art, clever, different from a heroes show. The World isn't prepare for this masterpiece
  • Apr 22, 2020
    After some years of studying pop-cultural narratives I came to realisation of just how hard it is to write a satisfying ultimate ending for anything longer that a miniseries, thus I all the more appreciate such an ending when I see one. The last season of „Legion" delivers conclusion that is really, really close to that, although also not flawless. While still trying to push forward the very borders of television it goes to a whole new direction and is completely different form first and second season. We see here great developments of already known characters (especially David and the Shadow King, my personal favorite), as well as a really intriguing story of a new character, Switch, which ends with fabulously warm twist. All in all I am thankful that creators of the show did not decide to prolong, and therefore overuse, their chance at changeing television and ended their TV series the way they did.

    A visual and creative delight.
