Netflix Releases The First Pictures Of The Umbrella Academy Season Two

Netflix has released the first pictures from the hotly-anticipated second series of The Umbrella Academy.

Filming started on the show's follow-up season around this time last year, news which was confirmed by actor Robert Sheehan - who features in a snazzy new outfit in the photos - on his Twitter.

Sheehan, who plays Number Four, wrote: "Season Two starts now."

Season two will feature 10 one-hour-long episodes, and has been produced by UCP (Universal Content Productions) for Netflix.

When the good news was announced on Twitter, the streaming platform joked it would be 'reading even more of your disturbing Robert Sheehan thirst tweets'.

Well, with these pictures, Netflix had better turn notifications off. Fans of the show are pretty likely to be in touch.

The official synopsis for the second series reads: "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."

Season two of The Umbrella Academy is due to crash onto the world's largest streaming platform as of 31 July 2020, so you've not got too long to wait to find out what happens.

For the few who might not already be aware, the superhero series is based on the comics created by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way, and co-writer Gerard Ba.

It features start turns from folks like Ellen Page, David Castaneda, Mary J. Blige and Emmy Raver-Lampman.

Oh, and Robert Sheehan, obviously.

It actually wrapped on filming in November, but then - well - you know what happened then.

The good news is, you've got a month and a half to get up to speed before the new series.
