Season two of The Umbrella Academy is debuting in just over three weeks and Netflix dropped a new trailer this morning that has us on the edge of our seats!
The series, based on the comics by Gerard Way, follows adopted super-powered siblings who reunited over the death of their father and soon learn that the end of the world is coming. At the end of season one, they averted the crisis…or so we thought. From what we’re seeing in the trailer, they only moved up the timeline and now the end of the world is happening in the 60s and it’s up to the family to get its act together and try to avert certain doom once again.
Coming in with the tagline “Same Weird Family, New Weird Problems,” we’re shown the family adjusting, mostly, to life in the 60s. Among other things, Klaus has started his own cult, Ben is still a ghost, and its seems that Vanya who nearly broke the world in the future–present?–has at least gotten control of some of her powers.
What I’m loving most is seeing the quirky energy of the family intact with incredible visuals and a rocking soundtrack–this time with a track from Way titled “Here Comes the End”– to boot.
Take a look at the trailer below and get ready for season two of The Umbrella Academy on July 31, 2020!
