We know from previous trailers that the second Season Umbrella Academy sends Hargreeves ’brothers and sisters to the 1960s, where they must come together to save the Apocalypse (again). But a new look at the opening scene of this season shows that the Apocalypse is coming sooner than later.
In this recording of Episode 1, five fall from a spinning vortex in 1963. On November 25, to find the center of the particle in flames, Soviet tanks stormed the city and, of course, its brothers and sisters. As with all of the show’s iconic action scenes, an unexpected selection of music begins to play: Frank Sinatra̵7;s “My Way.”
Based on a comic created by Gerard Way (yes, that Gerard Way), Umbrella Academy followed by six superstate brothers and sisters raised by an eccentric and controlling father who reunites after death. The first season ended at the end of the world, and the brothers and sisters jumped through the whirlwind of time that apparently threw them all off in the 1960s.
The second in 2006 Season Umbrella Academy drops on Netflix on July 31st.
