Legion 3

Based on the Marvel Comics, Legion is the story of David Haller, a man who believed himself to be schizophrenic only to discover that he is the most powerful mutant the world has ever seen.

From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named Syd Barrett.

After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking reality that the voices he hears and the visions he sees are actually real.

With the help of Syd and a team of specialists who also possess unique and extraordinary gifts - Ptonomy Wallace, Kerry Loudermilk and Cary Loudermilk - David unlocked a deeply suppressed truth: he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power.

Known as The Shadow King, this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David's friend Lenny Busker, but was actually an ancient being named Amahl Farouk.

During an epic showdown, David managed to push Farouk out of his body and gain control of his mind.

With Farouk on the loose, the team formed an unlikely alliance with their former enemy, Clark DeBussy, and his well-funded government organisation, Division 3.

Unfortunately, the hunt for Farouk reawakened the dark voices in David's head, and within them, a lust for power.

At odds with everyone he once considered a friend, David enlists the help of a young mutant named Switch, whose secret ability is key to his plans to repair the damaged he caused.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Chapter 20": Switch uses her time-travelling abilities to track down the commune and meet David, who is being hunted by Syd and Division 3.

@Lasizwe Fake It till You Make It 2

The first season of Lasizwe's reality show revealed his diversity: his family calls him Siphiwe while his friends refer to him as Thulasizwe. We also met his controversial, outspoken brother Lungile.

Through the 13 episodes of the second season he will attempt to find the love of his life, since his relationship with actor Cedric Fourie left everyone confused. Are they still friends or is there more to their relationship?

Also, did he really fully mend his relationship with his half-sister industry heavyweight Khanyi Mbau, who on the last episode gave Lasizwe sisterly advice about the horrors and joys of the showbiz industry?

And what are his plans as he enters into adulthood?

Cracking it internationally is high on his busy agenda, faking it has never looked so real as he tries to keep it together under the spotlight coupled with his growing pains.

Main characters in Season 2 will include his childhood best friend Ofentse Keswa, who is still trying to figure out life; his brother, Lungile Mcunu; actor Cedric Fourie; and his sister, Khanyi Mbau.
