This winter, Legion will finally debut on FX.
Co-produced by Marvel and Fox Networks Group, the series follows the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens) – a troubled young man who may be more than human. In the comics, Haller is known as the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier, who was first introduced in 1985.
Legion joins other Marvel-produced TV shows this year including The Defenders and Inhumans among many others. With the heightened popularity of these shows, it is expected that Legion will also become one of 2017’s buzziest TV series this February.
Legion will be released on a weekly basis on FX. While this is the case, fans are still interested to know whether or not they can stream the show’s complete first season on Netflix.
If you’re also planning to binge-watch Legion on Netflix, here's the answer.
As of now, Legion is not up yet on Netflix. However, it is still possible that the streaming giant will acquire certain rights for the show once it premieres. Usually, streaming companies begin to show interest when a certain TV series is raved by critics and fans. A good example for this case would be American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. Due to the show’s success, Netflix closed a deal with FX to have exclusive global streaming rights for the show and its future seasons.
For now, all we can do is to wait for Netflix’s move as soon as Legion premieres on February 8th.
