Itâ€™s more than a year since Netflix officially renewed The Umbrella Academy for a second season, but the streaming giant has finally announced the release date for the highly-anticipated second season to TV series adaptation based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s comics of the same name.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 is slated to release on 31 July 2020. The news was announced via a special video featuring the main cast members (consisting of Tom Hopper, David CastaÃ±eda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Ellen Page) recreating the first seasonâ€™s iconic â€œI Think Weâ€™re Alone Nowâ€ dance scene from the comfort of their own homes.
The Umbrella AcademyÂ Season 1 showrunner Steve Blackman is back for the second season, as well as series creators (and co-executive producers) Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.Â The Umbrella AcademyÂ Season 2 will feature 10 episodes just like the first season.
The Umbrella AcademyÂ was a success due to its meta nature and exploration of dysfunctional family themes, as well as offering a unique take on the superhero genre.
While we still havenâ€™t received a release date forÂ The Umbrella AcademyÂ Season 2,Â hereâ€™s what you can probably expect fromÂ The Umbrella AcademyÂ next season.
