Legion casts Harry Lloyd as the latest version of Professor Charles Xavier

Meet the parents as Legion adds Professor Xavier & Gabrielle Haller in its final season

Xavier

Before the story of David Haller reaches its planned conclusion with the upcoming third season, the powerful mutant will meet someone that fans have been waiting for: his father. That’s right, season three will see Professor Charles Xavier make his appearance on the show.

Since the FX/Marvel TV show is a different incarnation of the world of mutants than the films or even fellow TV show The Giftedit will have its own version of Xavier. Following in the footsteps of Sir Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy, Game of Thrones actor Harry Lloyd will bring the powerful telepath to live action life on the small screen.

Xavier won’t be alone though as it has also been announced that Mr. Robot‘s Stephanie Corneliussen is set to bring David’s mother and comic book character Gabrielle Haller to life in the series.

This news was officially announced through the Twitter account for the series, as FX was debuting a lot of news about the show and others during the Television Critics Association press tour.

Legion’s third and final season will debut in June.
