Bryan Singer has stepped down as executive producer of FX’s “X-Men” spinoff “Legion,” creator Noah Hawley said Friday.

With so much to watch on TV, it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the seven finales — and one premiere — you won’t want to miss this week.
Well, David cracks it — putting together the monster’s history and breaking out of the coffin it placed him in. When David looks into the camera and says, “I’m going to get my body back,” were you cheering? Lenny/the Devil has taken over David’s mind and has turned the Clockworks fantasy into chaos.
Warning: This recap for the “Chapter 6” episode of Legion contains spoilers. You’d think an episode composed primarily of people sitting around talking would be dull, but Legion remains as intense as ever. David and his friends are trapped in a delusion and each struggles — in his or her own way — to escape or adapt.
Some X-cellent news for the mutant community (and beyond): FX has renewed Legion for a second season. The X-Men-esque saga — from Fargo auteur Noah Hawley — premiered last month to rapturous reviews and 1.6 million total viewers/0.7 demo rating (it has since settled in at a bit more than half that). At last tally, it was enjoying a […]
Leading up to the 20th anniversary of the March 10, 1997, premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Yahoo TV is celebrating “Why Genre Shows Matter” and the history of how these shows have tackled universal themes (such as how much high school sucks) and broader social issues. “Name a current show you think is tackling an issue well” — that’s another question we posed to more than 30 executive producers of current sci-fi/fantasy series who agreed to take part in our Why Genre Shows Matter survey over the last month, either by email or phone. I’m obsessed with Black Mirror.

For those of you who were thinking there aren’t enough superheroes on TV, you are in luck, because FX premiered “Legion,” a new series from the Marvel Universe. David was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, so most of his life has been spent in and out of mental hospitals, which is where he met his buddy Lenny, played beautifully by Aubrey Plaza, and his girlfriend, Syd Barrett, who is special like David.
Warning: This recap for the “Chapter 1” episode of Legion contains spoilers. How do you talk about Legion? In the comics, Legion is the son of Charles Xavier, gifted with Omega-level powers but a fractured mind.
Instead, I was enthralled: This is the best Marvel Comics-based TV show by leaps and bounds, by head and shoulders. As we see early on, David may actually possess telekinetic powers, which is to say he can control objects around him with his mind. No wonder Stevens plays him as jumpy and mistrustful.
Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years.
