Netflix has released a trailer for season 2 of The Umbrella Academy, and while it seems like the family is talking to one another again, it appears to have cost them the world.
Season 2 kicks off on Netflix on July 31st and continues to the adaptation of Gerald Way and Gabriel Ba’s comic book series.
In the show, we have a delightful cast in the form of Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige.
The Umbrella Academy ha managed to avoid lockdown delays, but Studio71 Games announced last year plans to Kickstart an Umbrella Academy board game. We’re halfway through the year, and there are no signs of that yet.
Here’s the official 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.
