Umbrella Academy season 2 is finally here and boy, oh boy, it’s been a long wait.
The incredibly popular superhero/teen drama is one of Netflix’s crown jewels, revolving around follows six super-powered siblings raised by an eccentric and controlling father who reunite after his death. It also happen to star Ellen Page as Vanya, David Castañeda as Diego, Tom Hopper as Luther, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, Aidan Gallagher as Number Five and Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison.
We know from previous trailers that the second season of The Umbrella Academy sends the Hargreeves siblings to the 1960s, where they must team up to save the Apocalypse from happening (again). However, the Apocalypse seems a lot closer than first expected, with Netflix recently dropping the opening scene of the new series.
Then it dropped it’s first look at Baby Pogo – presumably piggy-backing off the insane popularity of Baby Yoda – with his return coming via a time travel plot device in which the characters travel back to a time when Pogo is still a young chimp.
(He obviously died in the first season).
As you can see, there’s been a lot of hype/build-up, but now the wait is finally over as season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is available to stream on Netflix.
The official Netflix synopsis confirms what we saw earlier in the opening scene of the new season, that Five’s warnings to his family have proven correct, with the time jump scattering the siblings across time in Dallas, Texas, with their timelines spanning a three-year period starting in 1960.
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.
So not a lot to ask for really…
Find out if they can do it (fingers crossed they can) by watching (bingeing) on the new series this weekend.
