The New Umbrella Academy Poster Is Really Weird
A new poster has been revealed for the upcoming second season of Umbrella Academy, which offers “Same weird family. New weird problems.”
Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy will hit Netflix on July 31, reuniting us with the rabble of misfits over ten episodes that are set in Dallas, Texas, in the 1960s. The Dallas instalment of the Umbrella Academy comic book series revolved around Number Five’s involvement in the JFK assassination, and we can see him in poster below with blood splattered across his face. Sinister, right?
The official synopsis for the new series reads as follows:
“Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 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, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).
“Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.”
Yeah, we’re pretty sure this is going to be one mind-bending series. And the Easter egg reflections in the family’s sunglasses below only ask more questions.
We’re gonna have to watch season one again to prepare ourselves.
