‘Legion’ Season 2 Lounges Around in Premiere Script Tease

Legion Season 2 Script Premiere Lenny

The Emmys may not have shown Legion love, but it’s sunny skies ahead for Season 2 of the FX mutant drama. Our first look at the Shadow King’s 2018 return has arrived in the form of a Season 2 script page featuring Lenny and Oliver Bird soaking up sun.

Entertainment Weekly shared a first look at the Legion Season 2 premiere script, in what’s said to be the opening scene. In it, Oliver (Jemaine Clement) and Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) relax by a pool, only to find something artificially amiss about their vacation. The pair were last seen driving off from the Summerland mutant refuge, with “Lenny” now psychically attached to Bird.

From the way series creator Noah Hawley describes it, we’re looking at the “real” Lenny Busker, who spends time with fellow passenger Bird in moments the Shadow King has no need of them:

Lenny and Oliver are being used by this character, Amahl Farouk. He wears their faces from time to time. It’s his way of hiding himself. I had this thought of, ‘What does Freddy Krueger do during the day?’ I thought it was interesting, the idea of the downtime of these characters. They’re not being used and so what is reality like for them? They’re being placated, that they’re in some place beautiful that may not actually be a physical space, it may be a mental space, like an astral plane. They have everything they need, they’re by the pool, it’s beautiful, but at a certain point, there’s part of them that realizes that they’re just trapped in this reality they don’t have any control over.

The Season 2 field is otherwise wide open, as we last saw David (Dan Stevens) abducted into a mysterious orb that may or not be the “Equinox” mentioned by Division 3. Further details will likely arrive from Comic-Con 2017, so stay tuned.
