Netflix has confirmed a second season of its popular new series The Umbrella Academy, with Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min all set to return.
For those who haven’t checked it out yet, the show is based on the comic series from writer Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and illustrator Gabriel Bá. It follows a dysfunctional family of superheroes assembled by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist intent on saving the world. Unfortunately, not everything went to plan and, during their teenage years, the group fell apart. Only now, upon hearing the news of Hargreeves’ passing, have the six surviving members reunited.
The first season was relatively well received and currently has a 76% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Additional cast members for Season 2 are expected to be released in the coming months.
