Netflix has announced a July 31st premiere date for the second season of “The Umbrella Academy,” the series adaptation of the award-winning comics by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.
The story of the first season followed a group of estranged, super-powered family members who have to come together and work through their personality quirks to solve the death of their father and the potential end of the world. The second season will follow the Hargeeves siblings travelling back in time in a bid to save the world from destruction.
Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Mary J. Blige, Kate Walsh and Cameron Britton co-star in the series which scored good reviews and was a big hit for the streamer. The announcement clip sends up the famed Tiffany song moment from the show’s series premiere, but does so with everyone in self-isolation.
The project was finished production and would’ve arrived earlier, but the coronavirus pandemic slowed post-production leading to this new date almost eighteen months after the first season premiered.
