FX’s sci-fi drama Legion released its first trippy trailer featuring Dan Stevens at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con. The series, which is a collaboration between FX and Marvel, is part of the X-Men universe and hails from Fargo‘s creator Noah Hawley. In addition to Stevens (soon to be seen in Beauty and the Beast), Legion stars Rachel Keller (Fargo), Jean Smart (Fargo), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Jeremie Harris (A Walk Among the Tombstones), Amber Midthunder (Hell or High Water), Katie Aselton (The League), and Bill Irwin (Interstellar). Hawley, Lauren Shuler Donner, Bryan Singer, Simon Kinberg, Jeph Loeb, Jim Chory, and John Cameron executive produce. FX hasn’t announced a premiere date other than to say it will arrive in early 2017.

The Plot: Legion follows David Haller, a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and visions might be real.
