Netflix will drop the second season of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ on 31st July 2020. Before season two hits the screens, let’s find out what the cryptic posts tell us about reluctant superheroes of ‘The Umbrella Academy’.
- ‘The Umbrella Academy’ reopens this July.
- When ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 1 outperformed on viewership!
- A picture speaks a thousand words! So untrue for ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2
‘The Umbrella Academy’ reopens this July.
The series revolves around time-travelling assassins, kids who speak to the dead and manipulate reality. Dysfunctional families always make for great stories, and with superheroes, the tale gets even spicier. The show is based on writer Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá’s Eisner-winning comic series of the same name.
Due to massive viewership in the very first month of release, Netflix decided to renew the series for another part in April 2019. ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will release on 31st July for the second season, the highly anticipated season after the quirky and puzzling finale. Netflix announced the news of its release with the caption “They’re back … in time. ‘The Umbrella Academy’ returns with season 2 on 31st July”.

The show not only boasts of massive viewership but also has a gripping storyline. In the comic world, the series is hailed as an atypical superhero tale. Season 1 wasn’t the typical Marvel superhero-type drama filled with glamour and plastic emotions. The show makes sardonic dialogue with the audience and by the end of season 1, it had raised viewer’s expectations for season 2.
When ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 1 outperformed on viewership!
With 45 million viewers, ‘The Umbrella Academy’ became the most-watched TV show on Netflix. With a year of data available, the “New York Times” compiled the top ten lists of what Netflix states as its most-viewed television shows and movies from October 2018 to September 2019.
‘Stranger Things’ (64 million)
‘The Umbrella Academy’ (45 million)
‘Money Heist’ (‘La Casa de Papel’) (44 million)
‘You’ (40 million)
‘Sex Education’ (40 million)
‘Our Planet’ (33 million)
‘Unbelievable’ (32 million)
‘Dead to Me’ (30 million)
‘When They See Us’ (25 million)
‘Elite’ (20 million)
One can see that ‘The Umbrella Academy’ is only second to ‘Stranger Things’!
A picture speaks a thousand words! So untrue for ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2
Netflix posted a string of images which hints that Number 5 was right in predicting the apocalypse. Season 2 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will see a reluctant reunion of the separated and scattered siblings (scattered in different timelines).
In the last season, we saw the death of their foster father, Reginald united the estranged siblings. Number 5 returns from the future and announces imminent apocalypse unless the siblings can avert it.
One could sense the sign of quirkiness when each one, just before the funeral, dances alone to the song– “I Think We’re Alone Now”. Vanda, brilliantly played by Ellen Page, brought sheer poignancy in that scene. We could sense the cracks in their relationship that leaves us thinking– Why was ‘The Umbrella Academy’ disbanded?
Check the twitter page of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ that hints new mess in season 2. From some time, ‘The Umbrella Academy’ is posting cryptic pictures. Trust us, you will hear 1000 words from each image but will not be able to make anything out of it about the plot of season 2. Go through the Twitter Page of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ for latest updates and clues on the second season here.
‘The Umbrella Academy’ is back in the 1960s. Season 2 will go deeper into their lives to uncover the secret of their separation. But the questions don’t end here. What about other kids in the lot of 43? What happened to them? Did they turn evil?
