FX TCAs: Legion ending after Season 3; more American Horror Story seasons in the works

Today at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, FX head honcho John Landgraf announced that the upcoming third season of Legion will be the last.

While that news may come as a disappointment to fans of the wonderfully weird X-Men-adjacent show, according to Landgraf, creator Noah Hawley had always intended it to be a three-season affair. Thus, the story will come to its "natural conclusion," per Variety.

The show, based on Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz's Marvel comics, stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, a man who thinks he's going crazy but may just be the most powerful mutant in the world. SYFY WIRE recently spoke with Sienkiewicz, who gave us the most Legion-y tease of Season 3 possible by simply giving us one word: "lunchbox."

Landgraf also spoke about the future of American Horror Story, which, according to Deadline, will enjoy "many more cycles" on FX, even with family-friendly Disney taking over the network, and despite creator Ryan Murphy signing on with Netflix.

Alas, Landgraf remained mum as to the theme of the upcoming season, even though they know what it is. But that makes sense, seeing as we've come to expect fantastic teases from Murphy about such morbid matters. Landgraf also noted that there is no end in sight for the decidedly not-family-friendly series, nor for American Crime Story, which has several stories in development, though what's up next is still TBD.

Landgraf also commented on Donald Glover's animated Deadpool series, which never went to air, saying that Marvel didn’t want to make it because it didn’t fit with what they wanted to do with the character. And at the end of the day, it’s their brand.

The network boss also commented on FX's upcoming series based on Y: The Last Man, which you can read all about here. What do you hope to see in the last season of Legion and the upcoming season of AHS? Let us know in the comments!
