It’s finally July in the longest year in the history of the human race, but that DOES mean we’re closer to the season 2 release of Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy.”
Today, the streaming service released a new trailer, a full-length (over three minutes!) one that gives us more to look forward to when the Hargreaves return.
Same weird family. New weird problems.
In the trailer, you’ll hear Gerard Way‘s song “Here Comes The End.”
“I was originally inspired to write this track when series one of The Umbrella Academy was being shot; by the time I finished it 2020 was in full swing, the world had taken a profound turn and the song was finished in a surreal new reality,” Way said about writing it.
The official synopsis for season 2 reads:
Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?). Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.
“The Umbrella Academy” returns on July 31st, only on Netflix.
