Watch The Action-Packed Opening Scene From The Umbrella Academy Season 2
Ahead of its premiere this Friday, Netflix have unveiled a mind-blowingly explosive opening scene from The Umbrella Academy season 2.
The three-minute-long clip shows even more of what quite was going on during the official trailer for season 2, only this time there’s somehow even more action, and it’s soundtracked spectacularly by My Way – rather than creator Gerard Way’s excellent new song Here Comes The End.
If you haven’t yet figured out what this next instalment of the show is all about, here’s a synopsis:
“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.”
Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy premieres on Netflix on July 31. Check out the opening scene below:
