Netflix has confirmed earlier reports that ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will be returning for a second season.
The Umbrella Academy season two has been confirmed by Netflix following the series’ global popularity after its debut on February 15. The comic-book series has gained a huge fanbase in the USA, UK, and around the world, all of whom had called for the Gerard Way-written show to be back for another season and new episodes.
Fans of The Umbrella Academy were left transfixed to each episode of the Tom Hopper and Ellen Page-led drama, especially the tense season one ending. Season one may have only dropped a few months ago but already another series of The Umbrella Academy has been given the green light by Netflix.
Production on Season 2 will begin this summer. Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min are expected to reprise their roles, and Steve Blackman will return as showrunner and executive producer.
The plot revolves around a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death and the threat of an impending apocalypse. The series is produced by Borderline Entertainment, Dark Horse Entertainment, and Universal Cable Productions.
While the series took some massive deviations from the comics it’s based on, fans have generally received it quite well. Season 1 concluded with the Hargreaves family deciding to forget their tortured childhood and unite as the team of superheroes they were meant to be to save the world.
As The Umbrella Academy is a Netflix Original series, the second season will only be available to watch online via the streaming service and not available on rival platforms such as Amazon Prime, Hulu, or Sky.
Production will begin this summer in Toronto, Canada.
Fans tweeted after the Netflix confirmed the news.
“Best news ever!” one Twitter user said.
“Woohoo! Yeeessss!” another wrote.
At the time of its release, one person tweeted: “The Umbrella Academy is one of the most addictive shows I’ve watched in a long time. 50-45 minute episodes feel like 20 minutes.”
Someone else confessed: “I watched The Umbrella Academy in a day and a half and now I have to wait a whole year for more.”
Netflix is yet to confirm the date we can expect the second season to land in our laps.
