Back in February 2019, we announced that The Umbrella Academy is a good idea and it needs a season 2. We were impressed by the dysfunctional family style mixed in with opposing themes — it was an almost complete story and only a lack of fans would prevent a season 2. We are pleased to announce that The Umbrella Academy Season 2 is set to return to Netflix on July 31.

“On October 1, 1989, seven extraordinary humans were born.
On July 31, 2020, they return.”

With the world on lockdown, Netflix thought it would be a good idea to get the cast to dance clumsily to “I Think We’re Alone Now” in their homes. It’s not the most creative video but the whole point is that the cast gets to excitedly announce that their new season is coming out soon.

On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
