With Westworld coming to a close last night, with a bang-up finale at that, my friends and I sat wondering what could be our next appointment viewing series. Game of Thrones‘ new season is months away, Better Call Saul just started filming its third season, and Fargo Season 3 won’t hit till the Spring at least. The new Twin Peaks is around the corner at some point, but there’s still no official premiere date.
It turns out, we forgot about the most obvious answer! FX’s Legion arrives in February to my relief! Created by Fargo‘s Noah Hawley, this spin on the X-Men mythos stars Dan Stevens as the son of Charles Xavier, who suffers from what seems to be schizophrenia…but I think we all know better. Rachel Keller, Jean Smart and Aubrey Plaza also star in the series that is set to debut on the cable network on February 8, 2017.
Here’s the newest trailer:
