‘Legion’ season 3 will be the last, ‘The Gifted’ season 3 is uncertain

During the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this month FX Networks & FX Productions CEO John Landgraf confirmed that Legion‘s upcoming third season will be its last. Additionally, the future of The Gifted is up in the air.

According to the info, showrunner Noah Hawley always planned for the series to run for only three seasons and the decision to end it now comes as a result of him and the network wanting to close the story the way he always intended.

The Gifted showrunner Matt Nix admitted that there’s even an air of uncertainty around his own production while addressing the crowd at the Winter TCAs.

“I guess the bottom line is, and I can speak for everyone who works on the show, we’d love to do it again,” said Nix when asked about the potential for a third season.

However, he quickly implied that enthusiasm for a third season would erode if the Disney + Fox merger resulted in any hard boundaries being placed around the show’s creative process.  “…In conversations I’ve had with my writers, everybody feels the same way, which is nobody would want to come back to terms that made it impossible to do a good show, and frankly we wouldn’t say yes to that. But the reality is that shows evolve.”

The 15-episode second season premiered on September 2018 and will conclude on Tuesday night.
