'The Umbrella Academy: Season 2'
The super-powered Hargreeves siblings are headed back to Netflix for Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy on Friday. Originally debuting on the streamer back in February of 2019 and based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way, the series follows Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five, who, years after no explanation being born to women who showed no signs of pregnancy and subsequently adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death. Coming back together after having been torn apart, their divergent personalities and abilities, as well as the imminent threat of a global apocalypse, threaten to once again separate them.
Season 2 will find them dealing with the aftermath of Five using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse, which has now left the siblings scattered across time in and around Dallas, Texas. Displaced by years, with some having built lives and moved on, the Umbrella Academy must now try to reunite and not only figure out what caused doomsday but put a stop to it before it can happen.prevnext
