The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy premiered on Netflix in February 2019, and the series as an instant hit. The show came with a built-in fanbase, as the show is based on the comic of the same name from Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance and Gabrial Ba.

The series follows the Umbrella Academy, a group of orphaned heroes who were adopted on the same day to a billionaire. The series follows our heroes all grown up, although we do see some flashbacks to their early days, as they try to stop a major event from destroying the world. They’re up against the clock to make it happen, and there are time-traveling assassins getting in the way.

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Aiden Gallagher, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, and Justin Min star as the Umbrella Academy.

We also have some good news for fans of the show. The Umbrella Academy is coming back for season 2 on Netflix! The streaming network confirmed the news in April.

We don’t know when to expect the new season, but it’ll likely be sometime in 2020.
