“Same weird family, new weird problems.”
The Hargreeves gang is all back together for Season 2 of Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy” and this time they’ve traveled to the 1960s. The seven-superhero siblings are teaming up together to avoid yet, another apocalypse. Of course, saving the world is never an easy journey, as the Hargreeves family faces new challenges in a whole new decade. “The Umbrella Academy” is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, of the rock band My Chemical Romance, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics.
We sat down with cast members Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Aidan Gallagher, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, Justin H. Min and creator, executive producer Steve Blackman to see what’s in store for season 2 of “The Umbrella Academy.”
“You’ll learn a lot more about who the family is. Of course, they’re still dysfunctional, they still have to work together to stop a terrible doomsday and we’ll have a lot of obstacles along the way while meeting some new bad guys. It’s a lot of fun, ” Blackman explained while speaking exclusively with “The Knockturnal“ about the series.
At the end of season 1, Ellen Page’s character, Vanya, literally ended the series with a boom, leaving a huge cliffhanger and making the viewers wonder where all the characters will end up next. “When we see Vanya in season 2, she’s much lighter, happier, and more comfortable with herself. She even falls in love for the first time,” Page says.
Season 2 of the action-packed series premieres on July 31st on Netflix.
