Get an inside look at Season 2 of Noah Hawley's critically acclaimed X-Men-based FX series "Legion," starring Beauty and the Beast's Dan Stevens.

Loosely set in the X-Men universe, the visually inventive Marvel drama focuses on a schizophrenic mental patient with telepathic powers named David Haller (Stevens), who is known in the comic book world as Professor Charles Xavier's mutant son.

"Season one left off with David being zapped up into this orb," says Stevens in a newly released "first look" preview for "Legion: Season 2." It seems the new episodes will start with David returning after a year of being missing. And he has no memories of what had happened since his disappearance.

"Boundaries are being redrawn - boundaries of trust," intones Stevens. "Obviously, he still got a connection with Syd [played by Rachel Keller]. But she's been missing him for a year. So, there's some bridges build in that relationship."

Noah Hawley, the Emmy-winning creator of the "Fargo" anthology series and who also created "Legion" for FX, also appears in this new promo, saying, "The first year was very much about mental illness, and that idea of what's normal and what's not normal." He adds, "I wanted to continue to explore those ideas about mental illness: what is a delusion? How does a dilution take hold? How does it thrive? What does it take for a group of people to go mad?"

Co-starring Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, and Jemaine Clement, "Legion" returns April 3rd on FX.

Legion follows the story of "David Haller," a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. With help from a team of specialists, David harnessed his unique abilities and learned he'd been haunted by a malicious parasite. Now, David is all that stands in the way of "Amahl Farouk" from attaining infinite and world-ending power.
