The Umbrella Academy, a show that soon became a fan favorite, revolved around superheroes with unresolved mental issues, childhood trauma, world ending apocalypse, time travel and of course, doughnuts. Naturally, a show like this left us wondering at a lot of questions. For instance, what happened to Ben, what will happen in Umbrella Academy Season 2, what’s going to happen to Vanya and the like. But today, we are wondering whether two time travelling assassins sent to kill Number 5, Hazel and Cha-Cha, are going to return for the second season or not. Because interestingly, even though we saw an apocalypse envelope them in roaring flames, there are some theories that both Cha-Cha and Hazel are still alive.
Who are Hazel and Cha-Cha?
Hazel and Cha-Cha play the role of two sociopathic killers in the Netflix Series “The Umbrella Academy”. Both are on the payroll of The Commission. The cost-cutting and room sharing while hunting for number five keeps Hazel and Cha-Cha on the verge of their patience. Hazel and Cha-Cha are represented as ruthless and extremely cruel. However, multiple failed attempts on five’s life forces a little humanity in Hazel’s character.
Hazel falls in love with the local bakery owner Agnes and decides to spend rest of his life with her. Cha-Cha burns up in flames caused by the massive meteor strike. The Commission apparently terminated their contracts and left them hanging during the apocalypse. Since season-1 was all about defining the outlines of The Umbrella Academy; we hope season-2 will bring more to the story.
Umbrella Academy Season 1 Finale
At the end of season finale of The Umbrella Academy, we see Hazel (Cameron Britton) carrying a time-travel equipment (i.e. a briefcase) with his beau Agnes (Sheila McCarthy). The couple can be seen carrying the briefcase before they disappear in the blue light during the apocalypse. Chances are Netflix will start off The Umbrella Academy season 2 with both of them jumping to a serene place. The Commission may also be returning to the season 2.
To clarify any confused minds out there, there’s a theory that Hazel stole the briefcase after killing The Handler (Kate Walsh) in the hotel room. He saves Agnes (Sheila McCarthy) and has plans to spend a happily ever-after with her somewhere away from The Commission and destruction.
Will he succeed in hiding away from the danger, only season 2 can tell. While we see Hazel and Agnes disappearing, we also see Cha-Cha (Mary J. Blige) swept up by the explosion giving a confirmation that she most definitely died during the apocalypse.
Is Cha-Cha coming back to The Umbrella Academy Season-2:
If we let the common sense prevail, then Cha-Cha is most definitely coming back to season-2 of The Umbrella Academy. The series has repeatedly shown that everyone excluding five (Aidan Gallagher) dies after the apocalypse. Both were alive when five traveled back in time to save his siblings and manipulate the timeline. Just as his siblings stayed alive; Cha-Cha would be alive in the past too.
We are not sure which era will be season 2 based on but we hope it shows a younger and somewhat different version of Cha-Cha. This will also help the viewers in understanding the character of Cha-Cha and the circumstances which forced her to join blue-collared workforce of The Commission.
Other cast members from Umbrella Academy include Tom Hopper, Ellen Page, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, Robert Sheehan, Adam Godley, Emmy Raver-Lampman Aidan Gallagher, Colm Feore, David Castañeda, Ashley Madekwe, and John Magaro.
