There are but a few series that can totally challenge Marvel and DC comic-book film and series adaptations, and that’s The Umbrella Academy. Being one of the most sought out series out there, we’re happy to report to you that the platform just hit the green light for its second season!
Not only has the series been loved by the people––generating tons of traction in social media––but showrunner Steve Blackman maybe even anticipated this renewal from Netflix. For one, the first season ended with a major cliffhanger with the characters jumping into the great unknown.
Well, what are we waiting for? Now that there’s a second season, let’s dive right in!
For starters, The Umbrella Academy season 2 will be returning on *drumroll please* the 31st of July 2020!
As you can expect, we’ll still be having the best Hargreeves crew out there with Number One Luther (Tom Hopper), Number Two Diego (David Castañeda), Number Three Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Number Four Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Number Five (Aiden Gallagher), the dearly departed Number Six Ben (Justin Min), and Number Seven Vanya (Ellen Page).
However, people, Netflix has announced three newcomers for the second season, and here’s what you can expect from the trio:
Ritu Arya will be playing Lila, “a chameleon who can be as brilliant or as clinically insane as the situation requires. Unpredictable, mischievous and sarcastic, Lila’s gifted with a twisted sense of humor.”
Yusuf Gatewood will be playing Raymond, “a born leader with the smarts, gravitas, and the confidence to never have to prove it to anyone. He is warm, dedicated and has the innate ability to disarm you with a look. A devoted husband, he’s the kind of guy everyone wants to know.”
Marin Ireland will be playing Sissy, “a fearless, no-nonsense Texas mom who married young for all the wrong reasons. Still in her prime, she’s eager to rediscover what life and love has to offer.”
Only recently, the streamer put up exclusive photos of the second season! Check it out!
