‘Downton Abbey’ star’s ‘X-Men’ TV series has been cancelled

There’s sad news for fans of Dan Stevens’ hit TV series Legion.

Based on Marvel’s X-Men comics, the show stars the Downton Abbey actor as David Haller, “a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he may actually be the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.”

Stevens shot to fame in the first three seasons of Downton as Lady Mary’s love interest, Matthew Crawley.

Legion launched on FX in February 2017 and it’s now been confirmed that the upcoming third season will be its last.

FX president John Landgraf announced that the series has reached “the natural conclusion that was always intended.”

The official statement from FX reads: “Legion has redefined the superhero drama and exceeded all expectations as the intensity and revelation build through the second season.

“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.”

Season 3 will premiere on FX this June.

Dan Stevens recently responded to the rumours that he’ll be appearing in the upcoming Downton Abbey movie, which will be released in cinemas worldwide this September.

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection DVD box set is available on Amazon.
