Legion is an FX television show based on the Marvel Comics character David Haller. It is connected to the X-Men film series, the first television series to do so. Dan Stevens stars as David Haller, the son of Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller.


David Haller was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age, and has been a patient in various psychiatric hospitals since. After Haller has an encounter with a fellow psychiatric patient, he is confronted with the possibility that there may be more to him than mental illness.
