The Umbrella Academy is Renewed for a Second Season

The Umbrella Academy

Netflix has ordered a 10-episode second season of The Umbrella Academy. The television series is based on the comic series written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá and published by Dark Horse Comics.

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min will reprise their roles with production beginning this summer.

The series is about forty-three infants who are born to random, unconnected women on the same day in 1989. The women didn’t show signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who trains the kids to save the world. The family comes apart when they come together as adults to solve the death of their “father.”

Steve Blackman will return as the showrunner and executive producer.
