Netflix has unleashed the official trailer for the second season of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY. Check it out below and let us know what you think. Featured in the trailer is an original song from Gerard Way, entitled “Here Comes The End”.
On writing the song: “I was originally inspired to write this track when series one of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY was being shot; by the time I finished it 2020 was in full swing, the world had taken a profound turn and the song was finished in a surreal new reality.”
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.
Ellen Page (The Cured, Flatliners), Tom Hopper (“Black Sails”, I Feel Pretty), David Castañeda (We Die Young, Sicario: Day of the Soldado), Emmy Raver-Lampman (“A Million Little Things”, “Jane the Virgin”), Robert Sheehan (Mortal Engines, Bad Samaritan), Aidan Gallagher (“Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn”, Jacked Up), and Justin H. Min “New Amsterdam”, After Yang) are set to reprise their roles in THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY. Ritu Arya (“Humans”), Yusuf Gatewood (“Good Omens“), and Marin Ireland (“Y: The Last Man”) are joining the cast this season.
THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
On October 1, 1989, seven extraordinary humans were born. On July 31, 2020, they return exclusively on Netflix.
