Plot summary

What is Legion TV series plot?

Here is a short review of "Legion" TV series plot summary.

David Haller was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age and has been a patient in various psychiatric hospitals since with the latest one having him placed in there by his adoptive sister Amy Haller (Katie Aselton). After Haller has an encounter with a fellow psychiatric patient, he is confronted with the possibility that there may be more to him than mental illness where an incident led to the death of his friend Lenore "Lenny" Busker (Aubrey Plaza). Hunted by the government agency Division 3 in the first season, Haller is saved by a group of mutants at a facility called Summerland, who explain that he is also a mutant. Haller eventually discovers that his mind is infected by the parasitic mutant Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) / Shadow King (Roy Kerry), and is able to force the villain from his mind.
In the second season, Haller returns after a year spent trapped in a mysterious orb. In his absence, his Summerland allies have joined forces with Division 3 to stop Farouk's plan to find his real body and amass world-ending power. Farouk even uses Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) and a device stolen from Division 3 to enable Lenny to be reborn in Amy's body.
Due to Shadow King's evidence, David flees from Division 3 with Lenny where they set up a place for his cult as David gets a time-traveling mutant named Switch on his side. He plans to improve Switch's powers in order to protect the world. David kidnaps Cary Loudermilk (Bill Irwin) to help him amplify Switch's powers. David then uses Switch to go back to when he was a child and witnesses various parts of his parents' past including his father Charles Xavier (Harry Lloyd) going to war and meeting his mother Gabrielle Haller (Stephanie Corneliussen) at a mental facility, his father locating and meeting Farouk, and how Farouk got into him in the first place, though this does bring both sides into conflict with the Time Eaters.
