Legion Season 1 Synopsis:
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. It is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep.
David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza)… A fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd. Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter. David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.
A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). Amy’s concern for her brother comes in conflict with her desire to protect the picture-perfect suburban life she built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird, a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy, Kerry and Cary – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
Legion is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with FXP handling the physical production.
