Renewed: The Umbrella Academy

Renewed for: Season 2

What it’s about: When 42 mothers give birth at exactly the same time on exactly the same day, things shouldn’t be all that weird. However, none of the women were pregnant when they started the day. It’s not surprising to learn there’s something special about these children.

Sir Reginald Hargreeves knows there’s something special so he adopts seven of the 42 babies and raises them to be the protectors of the innocent and unlocks their powers. Over time, the siblings leave the home but his death brings them all back together. That is just the first step in the story about stopping an apocalypse in six days.

Why the renewal is good: The Umbrella Academy quickly gained traction and it was only a matter of time before fans got a second season. While there is certainly a fanbase, there’s more that called for this second season to happen.

The Umbrella Academy is one of those shows that offers something for everyone. All seven siblings are completely different in terms of race, personalities, and powers. There’s literally something for every single viewer watching and a character you will always come to love more than another.

On top of that, there’s a focus on family, upbringing, and expectation. There’s a story of secrets, time travel, and saving the world. Between romances, action, sci-fi, and more, there is a storyline that draws people in and leaves you needing to learn more. The second season offers a chance to build upon that.

Plus, who doesn’t love the music? You know you’ve listened to the playlist since watching!
