About The Umbrella Academy TV Show
Netflix's second season of "The Umbrella Academy" premieres July 31st. Here's everything you need to know about the action-packed sequel:
What is "The Umbrella Academy" about?
Here's the official synopsis for season one: "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 Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves' passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father's death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse."
What can we expect from "The Umbrella Academy" season two?
Season one left viewers with a major cliff-hanger. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Five, Ben, and Vanya teleported just as the lunar devastation they caused started to wreak havoc on the earth. Where did they end up... or when? So far, we know that season two starts out in the 1960s.
Showrunner Steve Blackman told Den of Geek, “I really loved the time period of the early ’60s. There were incredible things going on in the country. And the assassination of Kennedy is just rife with conspiracy theories. So that’s why I decided to narrow it down to that window.” The Hargreeve siblings teleport to the '60s but end up in different years, Blackman explained. They must reunite in time to stop yet another apocalypse set to disrupt humanity in 1963.
How many episodes will there be in "The Umbrella Academy" Season 2?
Season one lasted 10 episodes and season two is expected to follow suit.

Blige as Cha-Cha, Colm Feore as Sir Reginald Hargreeves, Justin H. Min as Ben Hargreeves, Marin Ireland as Sissy, Yusuf Gatewood as Raymond, and Ritu Arya as Lila.
Will there be an "The Umbrella Academy" Season 3?
"The Umbrella Academy" is based on a comic book series written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. There are a total of three volumes in the series, meaning it's likely Netflix plans to develop at least three seasons of the show.
