‘Legion’ has wowed both fans and critics with its psychedelic spin on the paranormal. The FX series is tied to the ‘X-Men’ film universe, but not closely. But fans expect certain things from superhero fare regardless and one of those things is a mid- or post-credits sequence and it appears that viewers of ‘Legion’ should expect the same.
The show was not a guaranteed success. It was a trippy low-key take on having super powers. It was… “different.”
Luckily, this mixture worked and ‘Legion’ will likely be picked up for a second season. Critic Alan Sepinwall tweeted a message to fans, which you can view below:
Word to the wise: next week’s Legion season finale has a mid-credits scene. Get all your Nick Fury, shawarma, and Venom jokes out now.

So stay tuned to the final episode of ‘Legion’ Season One on FX for a tease as to the next season.
Eric Schrier stated:
“The first season of Legion was a stunning achievement. More than a new series, Legion is a wholly original take on the superhero genre. Our thanks to Noah Hawley for taking the creative risks and shattering expectations. It’s a privilege to work again with Noah, his producing partners, the outstanding cast and our partners at Marvel Television on another season of Legion.”
The eighth episode was written by showrunner Noah Hawley and directed by Michael Uppendahl. The description is very brief, stating only:
“David faces his biggest challenge yet.”
I’m guessing the Shadow King but that’s just me.
A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture-perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
Would you like to see a second (and third, etc.) season of ‘Legion’?
