The first season of Umbrella Academy was an absolute banger; a worthwhile binge of action, family dysfunction, and squirrelly time-travel. I went into it knowing nothing and finished it hoping for another season or more. Luckily, Netflix decided to bring back Luther Hargreeves / Spaceboy / Number One (Tom Hopper), Diego Hargreeves / The Kraken / Number Two (David Castañeda), Allison Hargreeves / The Rumor / Number Three (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus Hargreeves / The Séance / Number Four (Robert Sheehan), The Boy / Number Five (Aiden Gallagher), Ben Hargreeves / The Horror / Number Six (Justin H. Min), and Vanya Hargreeves / The White Violin / Number Seven (Ellen Page).
Season 2 opens up with Number Five touching down in an alternate version of America on November 25, 1963, after using his power to escape the moon destroying Earth in the Apocalypse at the end of last season. We get to see what new obstacle faces the Umbrella Academy and witness their powers on full display in the first scene of the new season before it hits Netflix in full this Friday, July 31.
Well, I’m in. If you need a primer before you dive back in, Netflix as you covered there too.
