Netflix gave us one of their best new shows of the year with The Umbrella Academy, and its second season is shaping up to be as amazing as the first. Marin Ireland, Ritu Arya, and Yusuf Gatewood recently joined the cast of this unconventional superhero series.
The plot of the upcoming season is still under wraps, but we know what to expect of the three new characters they’re introducing once it premieres. Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete) will take on the role of Sissy – a fearless Texas mom, on a quest to rediscover what life and love have to offer.
Ritu Arya (Humans) will play an unpredictable and mischievous chameleon, Lila, who also happens to be gifted with a twisted sense of humor. Yusuf Gatewood (The Originals) will portray Raymond, a warm and devoted man who has all the qualities of a born leader.
The Umbrella Academy tells the story of a group of former child heroes, who are forced to reunite and save the world. The first season premiered on February 15th to good reviews, and its ensemble cast included Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher.
