Marvel superhero shows may have been canceled on Netflix but this doesn’t mean that the giant streaming site is turning its back on supers. In fact, one of Netflix’s most popular original series is about the quirky outcasts trying to save the world from the impending Apocalypse. I’m definitely talking about The Umbrella Academy, the sci-fi superhero series drenched in gothic vibes. In hindsight, maybe that’s one of the reasons for its popularity. You know it’s like what you would get if Edgar Allan Poe dabs in the superhero market. Anyway, going back on track, The Umbrella Academy’s season 1 release was so successful that it’s only imminent that a second season should follow. After all, the first season ended in a cliffhanger. With the second season premiering close, we'll dish some information that might help you brave the wait.
There are lots of things to expect from The Umbrella Academy season 2 and we’re going to tell you all about them. Starting off, we know all the Hargreeves kids will be back to reprise their roles. I mean, that’s already a given. However, did you know that The Umbrella Academy is based on a comic of the same title written by Gerard Way? Yes, My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way. Now you’re finally getting where the gothic vibes came from. Anywho, the original comic series has three volumes and from the looks of it, Netflix will probably base the second season on the second volume, The Umbrella Academy: Dallas, like what they did to season 1. But hold your horses, there’s no need to read the comics and spoil the story. Let us do you the favor of giving you the biggest things you should expect to happen in The Umbrella Academy season 2. Go and check them out!
Not many fans know this but most of the things Klaus went through in season 1 were in fact taken from Dallas. With him becoming the fan-favorite, we can expect to see more of him in season 2 and maybe more of his time in Vietnam. In a vague foreshadowing, there’s a scene in Dallas where Klaus shows up with a baby which he claims to be his own. There’s no explanation to it, just his words to testify. This is gonna be wild for fans so expect this to happen.
If Netflix chooses to stick to the comic’s storyline, we can expect the second season to somehow revolve around the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. How does Number Five fit in this narrative? Well, we know he worked for The Commission, aka the time-traveling assassins. Not a pliant one, Five rebels against The Commission and plans to assassinate not President JFK, but maybe a fictional president.
We saw how Vanya lost control of her power, slitting the throat of her sister Allison in the process which almost killed the latter. Despite being safe, Allison loses her voice, the source of her power. If we follow The Umbrella Academy: Dallas, The Commission finds a way to restore her voice but it comes with a high price. She must intercept Five and stop him from killing the president.
Heartbroken from finding out that his moon research was all useless, the further events in season 1 pushed Luther into depression. In Dallas, the Moon Man is seen living the typical basement life where his only activities were eating and watching TV. Now that Number One has lost his drive, the leadership shifted towards Diego. This causes more friction between the brothers. We’d yet to know if Netflix will follow this narrative and see how Luther bounces back on his feet.
Nothing’s confirmed yet regarding Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige reprising their roles as Hazel and Cha-Cha but we need to keep our radar open. Recall that Hazel was able to escape with a time-traveling briefcase. Though Cha-cha was less fortunate, this time travel thingy really makes the story complicated. Who knows we might be seeing them again soon. If not in that manner, perhaps in flashbacks maybe.
