Legends Screening & Panel Session,
With Star Sean Bean and Executive Producer Ken Biller
Sean Bean and executive producer Ken Biller earned a standing ovation following a screening of the season premiere of TNT's completely reimagined spy thriller Legends Thursday at New York Comic-Con. The series is set to return on Monday, Nov. 2, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), with each episode available across TNT's mobile and digital platforms the day after it airs. Here are some highlights from TNT's Legends panel session:
"Speaking Russian is quite difficult. I spent a lot of time in Crimea, so I was quite familiar with the accent, but not so much the speaking Russian, because... that's hard."
- Sean Bean on one of the challenges he faced in the new season of Legends
"It's challenging for the audience, but hopefully challenging in a way that's engaging and rewarding."
- Ken Biller on Legends' complex plot and multiple-timeline story
"I approached it more as a novel. I thought it would be interesting to show these different characters - not just Sean's character, but all of the characters - at different points in their lives. I think what's interesting is to watch that evolution. The show asks the question, 'Who are all of these people and how are they different from the person they put out there in the world?'"
- Ken Biller on the multiple stories from different time periods
"If you keep watching and go all the way to episode 10, you will learn who Martin Odum is."
- Ken Biller on the mystery surrounding the main character's identity
"If you make it to episode 10, Morris Chestnut takes his top off."
- Sean Bean's added promise to fans of recurring guest star Morris Chestnut
This fall TNT's spy thriller Legends is back with 10 new episodes, but viewers who watched season one will hardly recognize what they're seeing. The show has been completely re-imagined, with a new supporting cast, exotic locations, and a whole new approach to storytelling. Sean Bean (Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings) returns as a covert operative whose world is turned upside down when he discovers that everything he thought he knew about his life has been a lie. In addition to Bean, the new season stars Winter Ave Zoli (Sons of Anarchy), Steve Kazee (Shameless), Aisling Franciosi (The Fall), Kelly Overton (True Blood), Klara Issova (Crossing Lines) and Ralph Brown (Agent Carter). In addition, Morris Chestnut ( Nurse Jackie, Rosewood) will guest-star in several episodes, reprising his role from season one.
Shot on location throughout Europe, including Prague and London, the new season of Legends is slated to launch on TNT Monday, Nov. 2, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). Episodes will be made available across the network's on-demand, digital and mobile platforms the day after their linear premieres. In addition, TNT will stack the entire season of Legends, meaning episodes will remain available on demand throughout the entire season.
