Good news Umbrella fans – you can now watch the explosive opening scene of the second season of The Umbrella Academy ahead of the show’s return to the streaming service on Friday.
As I mentioned in the first impressions review of the sophomore series, (which you can check out here) the opening battle sequence blew my mind, as all the Hargreaves siblings show off their individual powers in full glory.
Check out the video below!
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.
The Umbrella Academy season 2 launches on Netflix 31st July 2020.
