Legion's Noah Hawley on the Season 2 finale: "It was stuff that we already filmed, basically"
Hawley says the additional 11th episode was assembled from previous material from the cutting-room floor. "It was stuff that we already filmed, basically, and a couple of extra pieces that we picked up to connect some things," he says. "The thing that I learned with Legion is, because it’s a surreal show, it’s not necessarily information-based a lot of the time. But the experience of watching it doesn’t want to be a long experience. You don’t want to watch a 60-minute episode of Legion, I think it’s just too much. To a certain point, your attention is just going to wander naturally — even mine when I watch episodes for too long."
