Legion executive producer confirms Bryan Singer is not involved in Season 2

Legion executive producer confirms Bryan Singer is not involved in Season 2”

FX chairman John Landgraf revealed at the Television Critics Association press tour Friday that creator Noah Hawley has an idea for a fourth season of the network's hit anthology series Fargo.

While Singer had an executive producer credit on Legion and Fox's Marvel show The Gifted, he had very limited creative involvement on the former.

According to Deadline, X-Men director Bryan Singer will no longer get an executive producer credit on the FX drama series, Legion.

"Bryan asked to take his name off the show, so we have done that", Legion creator/executive producer Noah Hawley told Deadline following the Legion TCA panel. I literally haven't spoken to him since before we filmed the pilot, so it's been a couple of years.

Singer, 52, has been accused of sexual assault by Cesar Sanchez-Guzman, who said in a December lawsuit that the director sexually assaulted him when he was 17 at a 2003 party held on a yacht in Seattle.

His removal as Executive Producer of these spinoff shows is a sad but justified end to Singer's involvement in the X-Universe, where he had a huge hand in establishing the tone in the original X-Men that persists to this day in both Fox's superhero movies and the MCU. The studio said it was due to prolonged absences from the set; Singer said that he'd been back in the United States tending to an ailing parent. On the other hand, Singer directed the pilot for The Gifted. Still, if you want the respect and admiration of your peers, maybe don't pressure unwilling teenagers into sex.

Legion season 2 will appear in April, minus the Bryan Singer Legion credit.
