Marvel confirms 2017 X-Men TV spinoff

The TV show set in the X-Men universe that follows the son of Charles “Professor X” Xavier.

The main character appears to be the adult son of Professor X puts it way past the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s action of the most recent X-Men trilogy. It sounds like Haller is also not aware of his possible mutations, suggesting either that he doesn’t know his heritage, or that mutants are less well known in his time frame. David Haller, a psychiatric patient who finds out the voices he has been hearing in his head may actually be real.

The first season of Legion will run for eight episodes, with production beginning this summer, and the show is expected to air on FX in early 2017.
