Gerard Way’s new Netflix series The Umbrella Academy has been renewed for a second season

Nice one.

The Netflix adaption of Gerard Way’s comic and graphic novel series, The Umbrella Academy has been renewed.

The first season dropped earlier this month, starring Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Rob Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton and Mary J. Blige. 

The series follows a group of adopted siblings with superpowers trying to save the world from a – possibly inevitable, we don’t know yet – apocalypse-style event.

According to, it will go into production later this year in Toronto with Peter Hoar directing the first episode. Hoar also directed the pilot and tenth episode of the first season.
