The Umbrella Academy is an American superhero action-drama series. It is a Netflix original based on the comics of the same name.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Release Date
Season one of The Umbrella Academy was released on February 15, 2019. The show was an instant hit and was highly appreciated for its storyline and twists. In April, Netflix released the viewer- statistics of the show and officially renewed it for another season.
The current pandemic has halted the production of every movie and series. Luckily, the filming of season two of The Umbrella Academy was completed by November 2019. We can expect the series to be released sometime around August 2020. Some reports suggest it could be released earlier which is great news for fans.

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Plot
A team of superhero siblings unite at their adopted- father’s funeral only to discover there was a reason for his death. Number Five, who has been missing for years was stuck in a time loop reliving the day the world was destroyed. Somehow, he figures out a way and travels back to the present and warns his siblings about the world ending.
The team tries to stop it from happening while dealing with their own demons and emotions. Season One ends with Vanya destroying the world but Number Five transports all of them back in time. Season 2 will most probably change all the events of season one now that they all known about Vanya’s powers and can help her in controlling it and their father would most probably not kill himself this time.
