With Umbrella Academy coming to a grand end, fans are curious for the next season. But do we even have a new season!? Oh yes, Netflix has decided to renew this amazing series for a second season. The show has a beautiful way of connecting to the second season. It was on the official page of The Umbrella Academy. Where they posted a clip is the last few seconds of the last episode where the siblings go back in time and we see a big 2 appear on the screen. Confirming the second season!
It is not goodbye yet!
Though the release date is not fixed yet. The shows have been renewed for 10 more episodes, with all of the main cast set to return. Check out the announcement video of The Umbrella Academy on their Instagram account.
” Hello. Season2. Goodbye.” was captioned on the post.
The showrunner Steve Blackman has previously said it takes “around 18 months” to make each series. So we can expect season 2 being released in the second half of 2020. Season one was released on 15th February 2019.
Is it the end yet!?
* P.S. Major spoiler ahead!!
Compared to all the episodes of season 1 the last episode seemed to be the most interesting and eye-catching. The last episode was a great blend of emotions, actions and striking reality.
The final episode sees the Umbrella Academy band together against their sibling Vanya (Ellen Page) to stop her in her mission to try and destroy the world with her apocalyptic fire. But in a twist, she destroys the moon which rains world-killing fragments down onto Earth.
It is down to the quick-thinking of Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) that the Academy are saved, as he pulls them back in time to when they were teenagers to try and stop the apocalypse from when they were younger.
New season, Old Caste!!
In the new season, you will be seeing the old cast which is a big relief to a lot of fans. All of the major casts, including Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Emmy Raver-Lampman and Robert Sheehan, have signed on for season two, so that means the time travel to past is not permanent we suppose!
Earlier this month(June), Ellen Page (Vanya) posted on Instagram photos of herself, Sheehan, Hopper, and Rover-Lampman alongside the caption “We’re back” and an umbrella emoji. Confirming us that the siblings will definitely be back in their adult form to save the Earth from ultimate destruction!
What to expect from season 2!
Netflix is being tightly lipped about any news on the new season. Series star Aidan Gallagher toldthat plot details are “top-secret information and Netflix would have to kill me if I said anything”.
The way has already given Blackman an 18-page document that tells out the narrative of the comic book.
Way adds further that he has a “mutual respect” for if Blackman should feel the need to make changes to the screenplay.
