Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy was a show focusing on the fictional and dysfunctional Hargreeves family. Fans were awaiting any news on season 2 of The Umbrella Academy. Thankfully. the showrunners gave us some tips on what we can expect in the upcoming season.
The posters of the Umbrella Academy season 2 ask ‘When’?
Umbrella Academy’s social media runners certainly know how to be a tease. The marketing they just posted is quite cryptic in nature. The question the poster asks is ‘When are they?’
In the Umbrella Academy season 1 finale, Vanya (Ellen Page) loses control and shots up the moon, the destruction of the world initiates. Though, we saw that Number 5 (Aidan Gallagher) uses his power to turn all the siblings into their younger versions before they disappear.
There is time travel involved
Since the siblings could not save the world from the apocalypse, Number 5 had no choice but to travel back in time. This is the only logical way for them to try and save the world. They may have gone back to the time when their father, Reginald Hargreeves, was still alive in order to figure out a way to stop the apocalypse from happening.
Hence, the question ‘When are they’ makes sense. It could be hinting that. It’s not where they are because they would be in the same place as they always were. The location is the same but the time is different.
Each sibling gets a poster:
We see the eyes of each sibling with the same poster:
Sibling number 1, Luther Hargreeves (played by Tom Hopper)
Sibling number 2, Diego Hargreeves (played by David Castañeda)
Sibling Number 3, Allison Hargreeves (Emmy Raver-Lampman)
Sibling number 4, Kalus Hargreeves (Robert Sheehan)
Sibling Number 5 (Aidan Gallagher)
Sibling Number 6 Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min)
Sibling Number 7 Vanya Hargreeves (Ellen Page)
