FX announced today at the TCA winter press tour that the upcoming third season of Legion will be its last. The superhero drama was officially renewed for Season 3 last June but there was no word at the time regarding a plan for its endgame. It was stated today, though, that series creator Noah Hawley had planned on a three-season run from its inception.

Legion is one the more-recent Marvel Comics-based entries on television and was the first of its kind on a cable network, after other Marvel-based fare found success on both broadcast TV and Netflix. While the show's viewership took a hit in Season 2, it continued to garner widespread critical acclaim for its unique take on the genre.

The series follows a man diagnosed with schizophrenia who comes to realize that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are the result of him actually being a mutant. Now working with a team of specialists, he is able to explore an extraordinary new world of possibilities.

No premiere date has been scheduled for the third and final season of Legion, though a return this spring is expected.
