Where is Legion Filmed?

Legion is one of the most interesting new projects on TV this year, and we are not short of. Fargo's series creator, Noah Hawley, has got all the freedom and support from Marvel Studios to develop a X-Men spin-off with lots of potential.

Superheroes have saved the world multiple times over the course of comics and movies. However, this time the approach is slightly different. David Haller (Dan Stevens) has spent most of his life in psychiatric centers since he was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. At some point, he realizes that his craziness could be something else, in a world where people doesn't know (yet) about the existence of mutants. The series take place in a parallel universe that is not connected with the movies.

Legion was filmed in Vancouver and in British Columbia. As usual, we'll be updating this report often and there are no spoilers ahead:
