The creator of FX's "Legion" said the time has come to end the series.

Noah Hawley said the drama had arrived at a "natural place" to conclude the story of David Haller, the Marvel Comics character played by Dan Stevens.

FX Networks chief executive John Landgraf said Hawley had devised "Legion" as a three-season story and was sticking to his plan. The series is in production and set to return in June with eight episodes.

At the end of last season, David had stopped taking medication for his apparent schizophrenia and "spiraled down," Hawley said Monday.

Whether he can find himself or is "gone for good" is the story to be told next season, Hawley said.

Stevens said the series has been "weird and beautiful."

Executive producer Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television, said he thinks of season three as the end of a graphic novel.

He suggested a follow-up might be possible, depending on the story, the cast's availability and FX's willingness to green-light it.
