If you were a fan of the first season of "The Umbrella Academy" but felt frustrated by the season finale, you'll be happy to know that Netflix has renewed the series for a second season.
Netflix also states that the cast members set to reprise their roles include Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min. Additional casting news will be announced at a later time.
“On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. 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. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.”
"The Umbrella Academy" is based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and illustrated by Gabriel Bá.
Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will return as executive producer and showrunner, with Universal Cable Productions producing for Netflix. The season two order includes 10 one-hour episodes.
Production is set to begin this Summer in Toronto, Canada.
