Netflix has released the opening scene of Season 2 ahead of this Friday's premiere, and it finds Aidan Gallagher's Number Five dropped in a Dallas alleyway on November 25, 1963. It seems that the events of the first season have generated an alternative timeline in which the Soviet Union is giving a hard time to the US.
Take the Netflix show The Umbrella Academy, the first series of which was watched by 45 million households. Watch the opening scene below!
Umbrella Academy is based on a comical digital e-book classification of indistinguishable calls by My Chemical Romance leader Gerard Way. The superhero discovered her superpower which eventually grew stronger and stronger leading to the apocalypse that Five and the Hargreeves family was constantly trying to stop.
In addition to Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison/The Rumor), Ellen Page (Vanya), Robert Sheehan (Klaus/The Séance), David Castañeda (Diego/The Kraken), Tom Hopper (Luther/Spaceboy), and Justin H. Min (Ben/The Horror) are also back for the next round of Wes Anderson-esque superhero hijinks. Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, and Marin Eire will be a part of them in Season 2. Over a three year period. 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?). All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins.
The reports said that Elizabeth Padden and Lauren Otero have joined with the writing team of The Umbrella Academy Season 3. But seriously, no pressure or anything.
