One of the biggest fan-favorite original series to debut on Netflix in 2019 was the television adaptation of The Umbrella Academy.
After months of anticipation, a teaser video of the main cast recreating a dance sequence from the first season set to Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now” announced the Season 2 premiere date for July 31. Netflix has since released a side-by-side comparison of the teaser video with the Season 1 scene that inspired it.
Based on the acclaimed Dark Horse comics series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, The Umbrella Academy follows an estranged family of superheroes that investigate the suspicious death of their father Reginald Hargreeves, who had adopted the wayward orphans as part of his titular academy to hone their powers and save the world. As they work together to find out the truth behind their wealthy benefactor’s death, the group begins to unravel due to their divergent personalities and hard-to-control abilities.
Principal photography on Season 2 began in June and wrapped the following November, with Way and Ba both remaining on as executive producers.
Starring Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin Min, The Umbrella Academy Season 2 arrives on Netflix July 31. Steve Blackman will continue to act as showrunner and executive producer, with Sylvain White serving as a new director. Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy is currently available on Netflix.
