The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Shoot Begins In Toronto
The shoot for The Umbrella Academy Season 2 is finally on floors. The cast of the knockout superhero drama has flown to Toronto to begin shoot for the upcoming season. In April, Netflix revealed the viewership records for The Umbrella Academy. Which called the show a ‘global-hit’. The show, as a matter of fact, pulled in more than 45 million viewers in its first month. Netflix had renewed the show for a Season 2 in the same month but had not allotted a release date. While there were rumours that Netflix may delay the release of the show’s second innings, the show’s star Aidan Gallagher has apparently countered all rumours via his Instagram story today. The actor confirmed that he is flying to Toronto to begin filming the show’s sophomore run. Gerard Way
Aidan Gallagher Confirms Cast Is Flying To Toronto For Season 2
In their Instagram stories on Sunday, cast members Aidan Gallagher, Tom Hopper, and Emmy Raver-Lampman announced that they were travelling to Toronto, Ontario to commence shoot for The Umbrella Academy Season 2. Aidan Gallagher even shared an edited Instagram post featuring his co-star Emmy Raver Lampman alongside him. He captioned the post, “Season two starts now!” Gallagher’s post also confirmed that he will indeed be a part of The Umbrella Academy Season 2, something that was quite ambiguous earlier.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 On Netflix, Release Date, Cast, And Plot
In the superhero saga’s second innings, all seven main cast members will reprise their respective roles. The second season will follow from where the show left in its freshman run. It will consist of 10 episodes, where each episode will be an hour-long -much like the show’s first season. Steve Blackman will return as showrunner and Executive Producer.
The Umbrella Academy is sourced from a comic series of the same name. The Dark House publication by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá consists of three volumes The Umbrella Academy – Apocalypse Suite, Dallas and Hotel Oblivion. While the first season closely followed the first volume of the comic book series, the second season is expected to cover the second comic volume. In fact, speculations are rife that Netflix has already set at least 3 seasons for the show. Where each will revolve around a specific comic book volume. Gerard Way
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 doesn’t have a release date yet. Its first season came out this February, while shooting took place between January and July last year. Shows normally take six-months to film a full season. So, it will be logical to expect an early 2020 release date for The Umbrella Academy Season 2. Gerard Way
