After an exciting first season, fans have started demanding a second season. Netflix Original series The Umbrella Academy season 2 is already being filmed. Just like for any other hit TV show, we will try to answer all questions regarding fans’ anticipation for the show by Gerard Way. What is the release date? What happens to our main ensemble cast of Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Tom Hopper, Justin H. Min, Ellen Page, and David Castañeda? Nothing? Or something? Let’s find out!
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Release Date
At first, we were thinking that perhaps the release date will jump far into 2021. This was due to an interview held by Indiewire with Steve Blackman, who gave us such a hint. Luckily for us, Netflix UK confirmed it in their Instagram that the season would be returning sooner than we thought.
For now, we cannot predict the exact month in 2020. However, it is quite possible that The Umbrella Academy season 2 will return either in Spring or Summer 2020.
Well, there isn’t one right now. Not at least one that we have come across. However, it is a video of Gerard Way talking about comics with film director Marc Bernardin and Kevin Smith. You can watch that:
The Plot for Season 2
Here is what we think after doing some research:
The world of Umbrella Academy was hit with some sort of apocalypse however, the academy itself survived. Thanks to the #5, all the members of the Umbrella Academy were turned back to teenagers and were teleported through time.
Now, as they have gone back into the time they have years to prepare for the imminent apocalypse that awaits them in the future, which is actually the present. Dr. Hargreaves might also try to train Vanya to actually use her powers. Perhaps, Dr. Hargreaves might not commit suicide after seeing that even after time traveling the whole team has stuck together.
Perhaps we will get to see Doctor Terminal from the Hotel Oblivion, a place where villains are prisoned by the Umbrella Academy.
New Cast Members For Season 2
Deadline posted a confirmation for new cast members who would be joining The Umbrella Academy season 2. We would get to see Ritu Arya as Lila, Yusuf Gatewood as Raymond, and Marin Ireland as Sissy. These stars are from Sherlock, The Originals, and Homeland, respectively. All of them have their own powers as well.
With potential release date somewhere in the second quarter of the year 2020, only time will tell what else will we get to see from Robert Sheehan’s trippy show!
