The streaming giant has revealed the premiere date for the highly anticipated second season of their hit TV show The Umbrella Academy.
In the clip, shared on YouTube, cast members dance in their homes to Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now.” With the video, we learn that the new episodes will stream on July 31, 2020.
Season one of The Umbrella Academy aired in February 2019 and became an instant hit. Based on a comic series of the same name, created and written by My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá, the story revolves around adopted siblings, born on the same day in 1989 to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. In the first season, we saw the six surviving members reunite after the passing of their father, working together to solve the mystery surrounding his death.
The ensemble cast features Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige.
Steve Blackman, who signed a multi-year overall deal with Netflix in February, will return as howrunner. He will also serve as executive producer alongside Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, and Keith Goldberg. Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá are co-executive producers.
