The first Umbrella Academy season 2 video brings the whole family together

Klaus, Number Five, and the rest of the Umbrella Academy are returning for more adventures on Netflix.

After giving subscribers a wildly successful first season of the hit series based the comic book series of the same name, Netflix confirmed in April that a second, 10-episode season of The Umbrella Academy is on the way. Filming on season 2 of The Umbrella Academy got underway in June, and the show’s official Twitter account commemorated the occasion with a short video featuring the stars of the series reading a script for the new season.

One of 2019’s surprise hits for Netflix, The Umbrella Academy followed a group of children from around the world who were born simultaneously in 1989 under mysterious circumstances. They were then adopted by an eccentric billionaire and turned into a team of child superheroes. After disbanding the team during their teenage years, the six surviving members of the team reunite decades later when their adoptive father dies, only to have old wounds resurface. The sudden return of long-absent team member Number Five forces them to come together, however, when he brings news that the end of the world will happen in just a few days and they’re the only people who can prevent it.

The first season ended on a major cliffhanger [SPOILER WARNING], with the dysfunctional family of heroes teleported to an unknown point in space and time by Number Five.

Netflix initially confirmed the return of the series on Twitter in a video announcing the renewal. The announcement did not include any mention of an expected premiere date for season 2.

The Umbrella Academy is an adaptation of the award-winning comic book series created and written by My Chemical Romance lead vocalist Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. The comic book series was published by Dark Horse Comics and currently encompasses three volumes, with a fourth in development.

The second season is expected to bring back season 1 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 time-hopping mercenaries Hazel and Cha-Cha. Various other supporting cast members are also expected to play a role in the second season.

Steve Blackman will also return as the show’s executive producer and showrunner, with Way and Bá continuing to serve as co-executive producers.
