LEGION Season 2 Full Trailer Hints at War with The Shadow King
What's the last thing you remember?
After several teasers, FX has released the first full trailer for the second season of Legion, based on the Marvel Comics character. The 90-second trailer teases a time jump and the upcoming war against Season 1 Big Bad, the Shadow King.
The trailer opens with memory artist Ptonomy Wallace (Jeremie Harris) asking David Haller (Dan Stevens), "What's the last thing you remember?" We see David waking in a field somewhere, followed by a number of strange fleeting images.
"Where you been?" asks Sydney "Syd" Barrett (Rachel Keller), David's mutant girlfriend as we see a quick replay of the Season 1 cliffhanger where David was transported inside a small, floating orb device and kidnapped by a person, or persons, unknown.
We see fleeting images of David in some form of monastery meditating and the burned visage of David's former interrogator Clark (Hamish Linklater).
"I remember...trees," David replies. "And...dancing?" Suddenly, we see Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement), Melanie Bird's mutant husband and one of the founders of Summerland, participating in an elaborate dubstep dance number with David and Lenny Busker (Aubrey Plaza).
"We'll talk later," says Ptonomy. "Okay," nods David.
"After you left," Ptonomy says to David in a different scene, "we joined Division 3, started working together to fight our real enemy..."
"The Shadow King," finishes David as we glimpse the true face of Amahl Farouk, the Shadow King (Navid Negahban).
Syd asks, "You think he's infecting people somehow?"
"We all die eventually," remarks Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), David's psychiatric therapist. "The real tragedy is forgetting to live."
Syd warns "It's coming" as we see a strange, oval-shaped coffin being raised.
"What's coming?" asks David as we see the coffin being opened, revealing the Shadow King inside.
Fleeting images of the previous Shadow King (Aubrey Plaza) tormenting Cary Loudermilk (Bill Irwin) and bizarre women in black leotards with page boy haircuts and mustaches follow, as the mustached women tell David, "The end of everything. Do not fail."
"She lives in the future you're going to destroy," remarks the Shadow King to David, "and when you do, she will cease to exist."
David tells Syd he loves her and Syd replies, "Love...isn't gonna save us."
More images follow, this time of the Shadow King (Plaza) and Oliver lounging in a swimming pool side by side, the Shadow King (Plaza) handcuffed in the back of a truck with heavily armored police or soldiers, and David lying in the center of a floor marked with a large black number 6.
"You still trust him?" asks Ptonomy.
"He's my man," replies Syd confidently as we end with a close-up smirk from David.
