FX’s sci-fi drama “Legion” is set to conclude with the upcoming third season, the network’s CEO John Landgraf announced on Monday during the Television Critics Association press tour.

“Noah Hawley had always considered Legion to be a three-season show,” FX CEO John Landgraf told reporters, “and he has confirmed that he’s going to stick with his plan. This will be the final season.”

Season 3 of Legion is currently set to debut this June.

The TV series is connected to the X-Men movie series, and is centered around the character of the same name David Haller / Legion.

English actor Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast) plays the title character, a conflicted mutant diagnosed with schizophrenia who later discovers his illness could be superpowers that could change his life. He is also the son of X-Men leader and founder Professor Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller.

Legion also stars Rachel Keller, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jeremie Harris, Jean Smart, Amber Midthunder, Jemaine Clement, Navid Negahban, Katie Aselton and Hamish Linklater.
