While we're still dealing with the news that FX will NOT be ordered a fourth season of Noah Hawley's fantastic X-Men tv series Legion, we've now got to come to terms with Professor Xavier coming to the show too.
It was just announced hat Game of Thrones alum Harry Lloyd will be playing Professor X (David's father) for the third and final season of Legion
Noah Hawley is pleased to announce two guest castings for the final year of #LegionFX
Stephanie Corneliussen will play David Haller's mother, "Gabrielle," and Harry Lloyd will play his father, "Professor X."

It was also announced that Stephanie Corneliussen will be playing David's mother Gabrielle.
That said- it sounds like FX may not be done with the series just yet, as head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb commented today during the TCA Winter Press Tour:
"From Marvel's point of view, Noah told us the end of the story when he told us the beginning of the story. These characters, some of which are part of the Marvel library, will live on. I think of it as if this is the end of this graphic novel. If Noah came back to us in a day or a year, we hope that FX would want to tell the next story."
We're sure looking forward to what happens in the possible last season of the series on FX. We'll let you know what we hear.
Legion is set to return in June.
