Umbrella Academy was Netflix's unexpected hit of early 2019, offering a moody-yet-invigorating take on the superhero genre that was the perfect antidote to those moody-and-plodding Marvel shows. Season 1 ended on a huge cliffhanger, and it didn't take long for Netflix to confirm Umbrella Academy Season 2.

Let's dust off our umbrellas and recap everything there is to know about Umbrella Academy Season 2, from its release date to who's in the cast, the plot, the chances of a Season 3, and more.

What happened at the end of The Umbrella Academy Season 1?

Season 1 focused on Number 5's attempts to stop the apocalypse after accidentally traveling forward in time as a child to discover the end of the world. The show begins when he finally makes it back to the "present," where his superhero siblings have all grown into adults.

5 eventually figures out how the world ends and attempts to stop it, but he fails. To everyone's surprise, the cause of it is the sister they all thought was powerless: Vanya (Ellen Page). Their adopted father suppressed her dangerous abilities as a child and even made Allison an accomplice to the act by using her power of suggestion.

In the final fight, Allison thinks she's able to stop Vanya/White Violin and save the world without killing her sister. However, one of Vanya's energy beams hits the moon, breaking it into pieces, which come hurtling down to Earth. Number 5 decides to travel through time once more, taking his siblings with him. The season ends with them disappearing through time just before a fiery blaze destroys the city.
