WARNING: This article contains spoilers for Legion season 2
Where is Legion season 2 set?
The second season of Marvel‘s Legion mainly takes place in the mutant facility, Summerland.
However, the Noah Hawley directed series about mutants is super abstract with mind-bending visuals that take place everywhere from alternate universes and timelines to inside the characters’ minds.
The series takes place in the same universe as X Men and follows the world’s most powerful mutant David Haller (played by Dan Stevens).
Much of season one was set in a 70s themed psychological facility, but season two sees David and his crew free and working with former enemies Division 3, attempting to take down series villain the Shadow King (Navid Negahban).
Where is Legion season 2 filmed?
Legion is known for its intricate sets and otherworldly planes – not to mention the fact that a lot of the action goes on inside the characters’ heads.
However, in reality, the series is mainly shot in purpose-built sets in Los Angeles, California.
Some exterior shots were captured in the city of Santa Clarita which is just north of LA.
Actor Navid Negahban who plays the Shadow King aka Amhal Farouk spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about what it is like to film the series.
“We shot most of the show in the studio, called the Lot in Los Angeles, all the set had been but there.
“We shot part of it in Santa Clarity, out in the desert. Those were for some of the outdoor scenes.”
The Homeland actor added: “The set designers were incredible, I mean we had some scenes that were shot inside on the stage and now that I’m watching the show, I can’t believe that it was a set.”
The exterior of the Summerland building is the real-life BlueShore Financial Environmental Learning Centre in Vancouver.
