Our favorite dysfunctional family is back .
Netflix released its first images of the second season of the series “The Umbrella Academy”. The 10-part second season drops on July 31.
We were introduced to Hargreeves family last season.
In 1989, 43 women around the world suddenly give birth though they had never been pregnant. Eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) adopts seven of those children. He trains them to become super-powered vigilantes called the Umbrella Academy.
But tragic events wind up in the group’s dissolution and its remaining members becoming estranged. The members are forced to reunite when Hargreeves dies allegedly from a heart attack,
All were there save two: the deceased Ben (Justin Min) and Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), who had traveled through time and vanished.
The super-strong Luther (Tom Hopper, Dickon Tarly from “Game of Thrones”), reluctant reality-bending Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), druggie Klaus (Robert Sheehan) who can talk to the dead, the knife-wielding Diego (David Castañeda) and the only member without any super powers, Vanya (Ellen Page, yes that Ellen Page, Juno and Kitty Pride) have an already awkward reunion interrupted when Number Five suddenly returns from the future.
The first season ends in a cliffhanger as the Hargreeves time travel to the past in the hopes that they will save the future.
