This Friday get ready swing those pants as The Umbrella Academy Season 2 arrives on Netflix. Today we get a glimpse at the opening scene clip from the first episode. Boy it’s dramatic!
The wait is nearly over and if you have been reading the early reviews we’re in for a treat. The opening clip we find ourselves back to 25th November 1963, the cold war has commenced. The Soviet Union is attacking Downtown Dallas and our heroes are deep in action.
Bring it on…
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 series stars stars Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe and Kate Walsh.
The Umbrella Academy season 2 launches on Netflix 31st July 2020.
