FX announced the official premiere date for the Marvel series “Legion” and released a new trailer for the series on Monday.

The new drama series from “Fargo” showruner Noah Hawley will premiere on FX on Feb. 8 at 10 p.m. ET.

Based on the Marvel Comics serial by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, the show follows the story of David Haller (“Downton Abbey” alum Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human.

Confined to a mental hospital, David is confronted with the possibility that what he thought were voices in his head all these years may actually be real.

The series also stars Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Katie Aselton, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder and Bill Irwin.

Hawley serves as executive producer, along with Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory and John Cameron.

“Legion” is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.
