The news comes in the form of a video announcement posted on Netflix's YouTube channel this morning. New to season 2 are Ritu Arya (Humans), Yusuf Gatewood (Good Omens), and Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete). It's also the ideal way to announce Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy.
The series focuses on some unique individuals who were given the gift of life to discover more about their hidden talents.
Umbrella Academy takes place in a world where, on the same day in 1989, forty-three infants who were all born from different women who were all showing no signs of pregnancy beforehand. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father's passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death.
In anticipation of their return, the cast have come together to reenact their iconic Tiffany song "I Think We're Alone Now" dance scene from episode one, while they are self-isolating at home. "On 31 July 2020, they return".
The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics.
Fans of the show didn't hold back with their excitement.
Last year, Gerard spoke about The Umbrella Academy's inspirations and where certain characters' traits came from, and admitted that they were partly a reflection of his bandmates in My Chem.
Another fan said: "Now that's how you announce a release date!" That, and, well, this very fun but very weird trailer drop. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. The first season was released in February of 2019, amassing 45 million global viewers within its first month of streaming, according to Netflix.
The series was so successful that in the same month it was renewed for a second season, and fans can not wait to see more of the main cast and their adventures.
It's nearly time to enroll in The Umbrella Academy again.
