There is more and more news coming out of Comic-con in San Diego and this is one of them

The Legion panel ended with a pretty major news drop (well, two) as FX officially revealed that Saïd Taghmaoui has joined the season two cast as Amahl Farouk, a.k.a. the Shadow King.

The entire principal cast, including Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, and Amber Midthunder, were all in attendance for the show’s first ever SDCC panel alongside series creator Noah Hawley and executive producers John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Jeph Loeb.

Season two plot details were kept under wraps, but Hawley did cryptically tease that they are working on possibly introducing David Haller’s famous father, Professor X. We also learned that the second season will consist of ten episodes, which are expected to debut early 2018.

Taghmaoui is coming in hot after a scene-stealing performance as Sameer in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and his past credits include American HustleThree KingsThe InfiltratorG.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Lost.
