I talked to a former colleague who now runs a comic book site. He said he read the first three scripts for season two. He didn't spoil much for me (like that card does -- I didn't see that any of the times I've been at the DC booth), but he did say the first two episodes Click Here For A Spoilerare the Imperiex episodes and are pretty different in tone from the first season, but the third episode is more in step.

Spoilers ahead I guess. I just returned from the Legion/Batman panel (the Legion was first and I didn't stay through all of the Batman half of it).
From what we were told, the second season will be a "reboot" of sorts which [paraphrasing] "Legion fans have grown accustomed to and expect it nowadays."
Season Two is a year and a half to two years after Season One. Lots of changes happened between that time including new members such as Chameleon Boy.
Imperiex plays out throughout the entire Season. Karate Kid will be there and appears in the opening among the known Legionnaires (Tyroc, Shrinking Violet, etc.) After I left, I wish I would have looked harder for Colossal Boy or Cosmic Boy, cause I can't recall either now.
Dream Girl gets an episode, but the Subs will only be in cameos this Season. The guy who voices Chameleon Boy was unfamiliar with the character and had to check the Internet for references. He's going to be the goofy, comedy relief character and not the more serious character in the comics. The Fatal Five and the LSV return (in fact in the clip shown it looked like they were teaming up?).
Everyone's looks appear to be tweaked. Brainy has short cropped hair for instance. Star Boy has a greater role and Matter-Eater Lad will be there as well.
In one of the episodes, Yuri slipped out that he voices "three" different Supermen. James Tucker said that the new "future" Superman has aspects of Mon-El and Kon-El and was created during a war as a killing machine. The series will have the Legion teaching Superman how to be a hero and not how to use his powers instead of the other way around like it was in the First Season. Also, this new Superman has several new powers, one of which looked like some sort of energy discharging from his hands.
Hopefully, others will fill in any gaps of my memories.
