The siblings have to stop yet another apocalypse.
As we can see in the trailer for 'The Umbrella Academy' season two, it's up to Number Five and the rest of his superpowered siblings to save the day all over again. There's just one problem, however, as they've all been scattered across different time periods. Oh boy.
Following the events of season one where Vanya nearly brought upon the apocalypse, they're all now facing the added element of being dumped during a very different time period, with very different social norms.
Featured in the trailer is an original song from 'Umbrella Academy' creator and My Chemical Romance leading man, Gerard Way. Entitled 'Here Comes The End', Way sid of the song: "I was originally inspired to write this track when series one of 'The Umbrella Academy' was being shot; by the time I finished it 2020 was in full swing, the world had taken a profound turn and the song was finished in a surreal new reality."
Here's the synopsis for season two:
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.
