The Umbrella Academy came out of nowhere in 2019 offering a bunch of genres, characters, and superpowers. The American superhero web TV series debuted on Netflix on 15th February 2019. Since its release, it has been one of the most prominent shows on Netflix. Composed by Jeff Russo, the show is based on the Gerard Way Eisner’s comic by the same name published by Dark Horse Comics.
The Umbrella Academy is set in the year 1989 when 43 infants are born to random women who showed no signs of pregnancy. Seven of these infants are adopted by a billionaire industrialist to save the world. As the show fast forwards to the present time, six surviving members of the clan reunite upon the news of their father’s passing. The show follows the clan as they work together to solve the mystery surrounding their father’s death.
When Will Season 2 Release?
Netflix renewed the show for a second season way back in April 2019. Though the 1st season received mixed reviews, it managed to rack up fans and enjoy great success. The shooting for the second season has wrapped up in 2019 itself. Therefore, we can expect the show to release sometime mid or late 2020. However, there has been no announcement regarding the exact release date for season 2. In the wake of the chaos, it may be pushed ahead to early 2021.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2: Plot
Similar to season 1, we can expect weird, wacky, wonderful, and worried content from season 2. Although we are looking up to season 2, the written comics consists of 3 volumes. This means that the fans can expect a third season as well.
Although trying to prevent the apocalypse in season 1, the gang ultimately angers Vanya. Vanya with her insane hidden powers destroys the moon and the earth. As a result, the plan is engulfed but number 5 thinks on his feet and zips the gang back in time to safety. But when and where did they go? If the gang wants to prevent the impending apocalypse, they will have to manipulate the past. They could try to go back to their youth to stop Allison from messing with Vanya’s memories.
Season 2 will explore volume 2 of the comics entitled ‘Dallas’. Number 5 is given the task of assassinating JFK by the Temps commission, who are the people that make sure the timeline is not tampered with. But Number 5 eventually rebels blowing the whole plan to bits. The previous season has left the fans with a lot of unanswered questions. Season 2 will have to ensure all of them are answered.
