Netflix released the first trailer for the second season of The Umbrella Academy. The season 2 release date is July 31, 2020.
Shooting wrapped in November 2019. The post-production of the show has since been worked on remotely.
SPOILER ALERT ( if you’ve not finished season 1!)
Thanks to the new trailer, we know something big about the quirky superhero show’s return.
We’re heading to Dallas in the ’60s, where the Hargreeves siblings have been scattered to time after the events of season 1’s finale.
They now have to reunite to face a nuclear threat, and it’s down to Five to bring the Umbrella Academy back together.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comics by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, and follows the dysfunctional Hargreeves children.
The show’s writer’s room is still using Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s graphic novels as a blueprint for the series.
Although the the Hargreeves siblings didn’t save the world apocalypse. Making a dramatic change from the comic book storyline.
Umbrella accompanies a dysfunctional and estranged family of heroes having to unite after the mysterious death of the eccentric billionaire who adopted them when they were just peculiar children.
