Legion Season 3: What's Next for The Shadow King?

Alec Bojalad Feb 7, 2019

Amahl Farouk and Shadow King actor Navid Negahban discusses what's in store for Legion Season 3, the world of Aladdin, and skydiving.

The following contains spoilers for Legion Season 2.

FX's X-Men drama Legion is a different kind of superhero story. As it follows one of the franchise's more, let's say, cerebral mutants, the show delights in breaking down the superhero myth...and reality along with it. Still, the end of Legion Season 2 took the show's alt-superhero premise even further than ever.

The Legion Season 2 finale found our erstwhile hero, David Haller (Dan Stevens) succumbing to the allure of his own power and turning a super-powered attempt at an intervention into his own coming out party as a villain. As if it weren't enough to change the "tagonist" from "pro" to "an," the closing moments of Legion Season 2 suggested that there may be redemption in store for our former big bad.

Grey's Anatomy: Michelle Forbes to Guest Star — Is She Jo's Mother?!
Michelle Forbes is fleeing Berlin Station for Emerald City. The TV vet has booked a guest appearance on Grey’s Anatomy, TVLine has learned exclusively.

An ABC rep confirmed Forbes’ casting but declined to provide details on her character, so naturally we are going to speculate that perhaps she could maybe-possibly be playing Jo’s estranged mother, whose imminent arrival was previously confirmed by Camilla Luddington herself. (If it’s not Forbes playing Jo’s mum then it’s gotta be Jennifer Grey, right?)

‘The Report’ Is a Riveting Journalistic Response to ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ — Sundance Review

A bracing and unwaveringly journalistic dramatization of the largest investigative review in U.S. Senate history, “The Report” is so dry that it makes “Spotlight” feel like a Fellini movie by comparison. In isolated stretches, the rigor of Scott Z. Burns’ screenplay and the discipline of his direction can be enervating; if Robert Mueller were a filmmaker, this is the kind of clerical thriller he would make. And yet, the coolheaded patience of Burns’ approach is precisely what makes “The Report” so powerful in the end, not only as a lucid crystallization of our country’s recent political history, but also as an urgent reminder of how a world that prioritizes emotions over ethics will eat itself alive.

It’s easy to see why Senator Whitehouse thinks staffer Daniel Jones is the ideal candidate to lead a classified investigation into the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program (more specifically: the use

Will Sterling K. Brown be the 9th person to win a bookend SAG Award for TV drama actor?
With William H. Macy (“Shameless”) snubbed, Claire Foy done on “The Crown” and “Veep” on hiatus, Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) is the only individual reigning TV champ who could repeat at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. If he does, he’d be the ninth person to win drama actor twice and the 10th with multiple wins.

James Gandolfini holds the record with three wins, triumphing for “The Sopranos” in 2000, ’03 and ’08. Eight other men have taken home two trophies:

1. Dennis Franz, “NYPD Blue

2. Anthony Edwards, “ER

3. Martin Sheen, “The West Wing

4. Kiefer Sutherland, “24

5. Hugh Laurie, “House

6. Steve Buscemi, “Boardwalk Empire

7. Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad

8. Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards

It is also increasingly the guiding ethos of Hollywood development, where any familiar title, no matter how sacrosanct it might have once seemed, is ripe for a sequel, a prequel, a reboot or all of the above. This includes Game of Thrones itself, which is due to end next year but has a prequel in active development, and several other potential spinoffs waiting in the wings
