The Umbrella Academy: The super siblings are back

Netflix has announced the return date for Season Two of The Umbrella Academy.

Still torturing yourself after the end of The Umbrella Academy Season One by wondering what the hell will happen next? Well, the end is in sight as Netflix has announced that the date for the release of Season Two is 31 July with a hilarious lockdown video of the cast! Don’t believe us? Well how dare you! Look it’s right here…

For those not in the know of the series here’s a synopsis…

Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?). Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.

The Umbrella Academy Season Two launches on Netflix 31 July 2020.
