The story of David Haller will continue. “Legion” is getting a third season on FX, the network announced Friday.

“‘Legion’ has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season,” said Eric Schrier, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX productions with Nick Grad.
