Everything is under control.
Based on the Marvel comics, Legion returns for a third and final season continuing the story of David Haller, a troubled young man who discovers that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.
From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named Syd Barrett. After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking reality that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are actually real.
With the help of Syd and a team of specialists who also possess unique and extraordinary gifts – Ptonomy Wallace, Kerry Loudermilk and Cary Loudermilk – David unlocked a deeply suppressed truth: he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power. Known as The Shadow King, this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David’s friend Lenny Busker, but was actually an ancient being named Amahl Farouk. During an epic showdown, David managed to push Farouk out of his body and gain control of his mind. With Farouk on the loose, the team formed an unlikely alliance with their former enemy, Clark DeBussy and his well-funded government organization, Division 3.
Unfortunately, the hunt for Farouk reawakened the dark voices in David’s head, and with them, a lust for power. At odds with everyone he once considered a friend, David enlists the help of a young mutant named Switch whose secret ability is key to his plans to repair the damaged he caused.
