Three minutes of gun shots, explosions, superpowers and lots and lots of questions!
The Netflix hit The Umbrella Academy is back for a highly anticipated second season. Just this morning the streaming service shared the opening scene for season 2 and it looks explosive. When we last saw the rag-tag team of superpowered siblings, Number 5 used his time traveling abilities to escape to the past to ensure the gangs safety from the imminent apocalypse. Oddly enough it seems the gang is once again facing an apocalypse but this time it comes in the form of nuclear weapons falling from the sky in 1963. You can never have enough apocalypses, am I right?
The whole gang is back with Ellen Page, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige returning. This season the siblings seem to have evolved both in their looks and their powers. Donning all black, the superheroes combat the Russian soldiers who are storming the streets after JFK has declared war. It’s clear that the petty drama that divided the team last season has been put aside as they now kick butt as a well oiled machine. It wouldn’t make for very exciting tv if the group remained happy-go-lucky however, so in the last few seconds we see the aged assassin Hazel return to take Number 5 on another time hop to save his family from the nuclear bombs that are dropping from the sky.
What will happen next?! Are we going further back in time again? Is it possible avoid two apocalypses? How did they adjust to life without cellphones?!?
Luckily we don’t have to wait long to find out the answers to these questions. Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is available for streaming on July 31st.
