‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2 Trailer: The Fam’ Hits the ‘60s with a New Doomsday Countdown


Netflix has dropped the official trailer for The Umbrella Academy‘s second season.

Following on from that big season one cliffhanger, season 2 finds Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), Vanya (Ellen Page), Luther (Tom Hopper), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) and Diego (David Castañeda) in the ’60s. As Five forewarned many times, they’ve ended up in a different time period – over a three-year period – and have inadvertently disrupted the timeline and caused a new doomsday countdown. So, now they have to stop this one, return to the present and stop that one, and all while three killer Swedes attempt to hunt them down. And as you can see in the trailer, Hazel (Cameron Britton) and, yes, their adoptive father (Colm Feore) are also back in the picture.

There’s a lot to tackle in the next chapter, which looks like another wild and entertaining ride. Can’t wait. The Umbrella Academy season 2 will be streaming on Netflix on July 31st.

Official synopsis for The Umbrella Academy season 2:

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.
