Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy, the Netflix Original based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s comic book series will premiere in the Philippines this Friday, July 31, 2020 3:00 PM PST. Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Five, Ben (Justin Min), and Vanya (Ellen Page) are back for the show’s second chapter since its Netflix debut in February 2019.
Based on the trailer and the synopsis provided by Netflix below, the season promises action-packed moments:
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.
