Time travel is messy. The Hargreeves are back July 31.
But for now, here’s your first look at the second season of Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy.’
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’ returns for its second season on July 31 with Steve Blackman back as the showrunner and producer, with Jeff King (EP), Keith Goldberg (EP), Mike Richardson (EP), Gerard Way (Co-EP) and Gabriel Ba (Co-Ep) as co-producers.
Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman and Justin H. Min return for the 10-episode superhero web television series based on the comic book series of the same name published by Dark Horse Comics.
