The Umbrella Academy is returning for a second shot at greatness on Netflix…but its members cannot physically reunite to promote that fact! Fortunately this season was already filmed pre-pandemic, but getting a trailer together required some remote cooperation.
It’s through this performance of a famed Tiffany cover that we finally learn the release date for Umbrella Academy Season 2….we can expect it at the end of July. See for yourself:
The Umbrella Academy is based on the Dark Horse series of graphic novels by Gerard Way. Seven miracle babies were born in different areas, each with superpowers (well, the powers seem to have skipped one of ’em). They were all tracked down and adopted into the same family by a wealthy recluse who planned to form his own Justice League. ..however, it didn’t really work out that way and the man eventually died.
Meeting back up at their pop’s funeral, the family realizes an apocalypse is on the way and their powers might be the only thing that can fight it. Thus are they forced to become a REAL superhero team, and make a stab at saving the world.
The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, and David Castañeda. They’re alone now, but not for much longer…the second season becomes watchable July 31, exclusively on Netflix.
