Netflix teases time-twisting season 2 of The Umbrella Academy

It’s been just over a year since the premiere of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, and with filming on the second season concluded, fans are finally getting a peek at what season 2 will bring for the show’s dysfunctional family of superheroes.

Netflix released a series of posters on Twitter featuring each of the show’s main characters’ eyes framed by an umbrella-shaped pattern. The series of character-specific images were preceded by a promotional image for the second season with the tagline “When are they?”

“This time travel thing? It gets messy,” Netflix wrote in the accompanying tweet. “The cast of Umbrella Academy is back for Season 2!”

After the first season of The Umbrella Academy ended on a cliffhanger that saw the siblings journey back in time — with some help from Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) — in the midst of an apocalyptic event, fans were left wondering where the next season would send the reluctant heroes. The Netflix teasers suggest that a journey through time is indeed in their future (or is it their past?), but judging by the events of the first season, their adventure isn’t likely to go smoothly.

Netflix renewed The Umbrella Academy in April 2019, just two months after the series launched on the streaming service. There’s no word on when the second, 10-episode season will premiere, but filming on the new season reportedly concluded in November 2019.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series of the same name written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and was developed for TV by Steve Blackman (the Fargo TV series) and Jeremy Slater (Death Note). The series follows a group of adopted siblings with extraordinary powers who spend their childhood as a superhero team, only to grow estranged in later years. They reunite years later when their father dies, only to find themselves caught up in a world-threatening mystery tied to their past.

Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is expected to bring back first-season stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min, as well as Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige, who portrayed the time-hopping mercenaries Hazel and Cha-Cha. Several new cast members for season 2 were also announced, with Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, and Marin Ireland all joining the series.

Arya will portray Lila, “a chameleon who can be as brilliant or as clinically insane as the situation requires,” while Gatewood will play Raymond, “a born leader with the smarts, gravitas, and the confidence to never have to prove it to anyone.” Ireland will play Sissy, “a fearless, no-nonsense Texas mom who married young for all the wrong reasons.”

And Just Like That… season 2, episode 3 release date, time, channel, and plot
Carrie listens to a broadcast in And Just Like That.

After six successful seasons and two terrible movies, the Sex and the City universe expanded with the addition of And Just Like That..., which serves as a sequel and series revival. Premiering in 2021, And Just Like That... reintroduced the world to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis), three of the leading women in Sex and the City. The original series focused on the friendship, sex lives, and social issues of these then-thirtysomethings living in New York City.

And Just Like That... , however, picks up 11 years after Sex and the City 2, with Carrie, Miranda, and Charlotte all in their 50s. Despite the fact that they're older, the same friendship, fashion, and relationship drama are still as present as ever. And Just Like That... became Max's most-watched series debut at the time of its December 2021 premiere. Originally conceived as a miniseries, the overwhelming popularity led to a season 2 renewal. What time does episode 3 stream? Find out below!

A Skrull screams in Secret Invasion.

Where in the world is Nick Fury? When we last saw the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Fury was taking a vacation on a Skrull spaceship in the post-credits of Spider-Man: Far From Home. On Earth, Talos and Soren were disguised as Fury and Maria Hill. It's been four years since that post-credits scene, and Fury finally returns to the MCU in the new Disney+ series Secret Invasion.

Samuel L. Jackson reprises his role as Fury, who returns to Earth to investigate a covert mission by a faction of Skrulls seeking to invade and conquer Earth. To stop the Skrull invasion, Fury seeks help from three allies: Hill (Cobie Smulders), Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman), and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). The spy thriller is the first Disney+ TV series in Phase Five of the MCU. To find out when episode 2 streams, keep reading!

Extraction 2 is the most popular Netflix movie right now. Here’s why you should watch it
Chris Hemsworth protects a woman from two men in Extraction 2.

In April 2020, most of the world was stuck inside due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Movie theaters were closed, causing every major studio to push back their films to later dates, so streaming services were one of the few places to find new movies. One of those streamers was Netflix, which released the action thriller Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth on April 24, 2020. Hemsworth stars as Tyler Rake, a former special ops agent- turned-elite mercenary who must rescue the son of an Indian drug lord. Extraction was a huge hit with audiences and became Netflix's most-watched original film up to that point.

Three years later, Tyler Rake is back with a new mission in the sequel Extraction 2. After surviving the events at the end of Extraction, including a gunshot to the neck, Tyler retires to a secluded cabin in Austria. While recovering from his injuries, Tyler is recruited by a mysterious stranger (Idris Elba) for another adventure -- and this one is personal. Tyler is tasked with freeing his ex-wife's sister, Ketevan (Tinatin Dalakishvili), and her two children from a Georgian prison. The sequel packs an even bigger and better punch, with more fantastic action sequences. Here are three reasons why Extraction 2 should be the next movie in your queue.
1. Extraction 2 has an amazing 21-minute, one-take action sequence
