FX has ordered a third season of its psychedelic brain-tickler of a superhero drama Legion, the network announced in a press release this afternoon. The renewal comes with praise for series creator Noah Hawley, with FX programming co-president Eric Schrier saying in a statement, “we are incredibly proud of Noah Hawley’s achievement and are honored to continue the series as it pushes the boundaries of conventional television storytelling.”

Legion’s second season premiered on FX at the beginning of April, and a new episode is set to air this coming Tuesday, June, 5, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Although the second season has had some minor missteps, overall we’re big fans of the show here at The A.V. Club; in her season two review, our own Danette Chavez called it “one of the most visually arresting and thematically complex [TV] shows in recent years.”
