The Umbrella Academy returns to Netflix for a second season tomorrow (July 31st)! Check out the opening scene below the trailer and synopsis!
On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born 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. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
Season 2 sees the siblings scattered in time around Dallas, starting in the year 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land. He appears smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday. Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused the doomsday, put a stop to it and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All the while, they are hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins.

The show is produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
