The wait is almost over.
Anticipation is building for one of Netflix's biggest TV shows of the past couple of years, which was a welcome addition to their library given that their deal will Marvel fell through (we're still not over 'Daredevil' not getting a fourth season). Alas, 'The Umbrella Academy' return is only a month out from arriving back on Netflix, and the teasers are rolling in.
As you can see below, the new poster with all seven Hargreeves siblings has them all wearing retro sunglasses. But these aren't just any ol' sunglasses dear reader, oh no - they've got Easter Eggs in them.
From what we can gather, each of the siblings will be thrown back in time to around the same-ish period. Thanks to Number Five's teleportation at the end of season one, it seems that each of the siblings may end up scattered across a different point in history - and must find each-other to once again save the day (and watch out for some new Swedish assassins).
Each of the siblings in the poster below have a different reflection in their glasses - Luther (Tom Hopper) looks like will be caught up in the Vietnam War; Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) will be an active participant in the Civil Rights Movement in the late '50s/early '60s; Diego (David Castañeda) has a mysterious woman in his sights; while Klaus (Robert Sheehan) will probably gravitate toward being a big hippie.
Vanya (Ellen Page) seems to be caught up in family living, while Ben (Justin H. Min) has the family portrait of his siblings in his glasses, and Number Five (Aiden Gallagher) has a building which could be the Hargreeves family home. In any case, it seems that they're all going to be based somewhere in the '50s or '60s.
Here's the poster, which was shared by graphic novel creator Gerard Way.
