Noah Hawley created the American television series Legion for FX, centered on the Marvel Comics character David Haller (Legion). While avoiding a federal agency, Haller fights to manage his mutant powers and the nefarious forces attempting to dominate them. Legion’s first season aired from February to March 2017 and consisted of eight episodes. From April to June 2018, an eleven-episode second season premiered. The third and final season, consisting of eight episodes, premiered on June 24, 2019. The show was fantastic, but alas, it had to come to an end. Legion will not be renewed for a fourth season.
Reason Of Legion Season 4 Cancellation
There are a multitude of reasons why the legion was discontinued. There will be no more seasons of the show, not even the fourth. The plot came to an ultimate end. In its final statement, the show recognizes — “This is the end. Then, the beginning. Then, the end. What it all means is not for us to know. It is for history to decide.”
Well, from 1.6 million viewers for its Season 1 debut to a meager of 315,000 viewers for the Season 2 conclusion, the third season was never a guarantee in the first instance but again it was renewed for Season 3. Hawley announced in February 2019 that the third season would air in June 2019 and would be the series’ final season, as he had originally planned.
Noah Hawley’s Statement Regarding The Legion
“Endings are what give stories meaning,” according to Hawley. During the TCA panel, Hawley said “I always thought about this as a complete story, and it felt like three acts of a story.” Regardless of who initiated the choice to terminate Legion with Season 3 (Noah Hawley or Landgraf) the choice was reached in advance for Hawley to construct a genuine conclusion, instead of cancelling the show suddenly and abandoning fans with no resolve. He did add, though, that if the authors have anything on their minds about the show, they are free to think about it. However, nothing is formally announced after that announcement. Well, we shouldn’t be surprised that the show won’t be renewed for another season. It has come to an end. The “Show Isn’t Cancelled, but it Ended“ was also mentioned.
“I think I did the sort of difficult egg-carry to get the story and these characters through all the challenges that they had,” after the finale, Hawley mentioned this. Also Adding, “and left them all in a sort of resolved and safe place in a way that feels satisfying to me.”
Also, he mentioned “I don’t, at this moment, have as much thought in my head about returning to Legion or rebooting it or any of those things. You know, obviously the Marvel universe is huge and expansive, and this character is out there now. You could do a lot worse than to incorporate Dan Stevens into the X-Men, in my opinion. But it’s not a conversation I’ve had.”
Well, now it’s official and we realize how heartbreaking this is, but let’s cherish the amazing series. You may watch previous seasons of Legion.
