The second season of The Umbrella Academy is finally upon us! Season one left viewers off with a nail-biting cliffhanger and a ton of unanswered questions. Fans will remember that it concluded with everyone’s favorite dysfunctional superhero family preventing the apocalypse by transporting back in time.
In December 2019, Netflix released a few lists of its most popular new content of the year. The Umbrella Academy ranked at number nine in the top 10 most popular releases in the United States.
A spin-off comic book series to The Umbrella Academy was announced back in February 2020. Entitled ‘You Look Like Death’ the first comic mainly focuses on Klaus.
When will The Umbrella Academy Season two release on Netflix?
After an incredibly long and patient wait for The Umbrella Academy season 2, Netflix has finally confirmed that the second season will be coming to Netflix on July 31st, 2020.
Episode Count for The Umbrella Academy Season Two
The second season of The Umbrella Academy will also have ten episodes.
Episode one is entitled: “Right Back Where We Started” and is written by Steve Balckmana and directed by Sylvain White.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Cast
Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy featured an all-star ensemble cast. As reported, all of the Hargreeves kids will be returning, which means that Vanya ( Ellen Page), Luther (Tom Hopper), Allison ( Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus ( Robert Sheehan), Diego ( David Castaneda), Number Five ( Aidan Gallagher), and Ben ( Ethan Hwang) will be back bickering together in no time.
Speaking of time, it is currently unknown if time-traveling assassin Cha-Cha ( Mary J. Blige) will be back after she was vaporized when the Earth was bombarded by chunks of the destroyed moon.
However, her partner-in-crime Hazel ( Cameron Britton) appears briefly in the promo as an old man. Consider how time-travel plays a big role in the show, and it’s entirely possible that we will see The Handler (Kate Walsh), Pogo ( Adam Godley).
Plot: The Umbrella Academy Season 2
Five warned his family 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 four 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.
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.
