Netflix has finally released a trailer for its forthcoming second season of The Umbrella Academy. Following the end of the first season, the Hargreeves siblings have escaped the 2019 apocalypse using Five’s ability to jump time and individually landed between 1960 and 1963. What’s worse is that they’ve brought the end of the world along with them.
The footage above showcases the siblings in the past as they attempt to reunite. However, some members have created new lives while others are struggling to adapt to their settings. The trailer shows Five and the rest of the characters wondering what’s caused doomsday to follow them through time, how they can stop the apocalypse from arriving, and how to go back to the present day and stop it from happening then as well.
The trailer features a new song by Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance, who alongside artist Gabriel Ba created the comic book the series is inspired by. The track is aptly titled “Here Comes the End.”
“I was originally inspired to write this track when series one of The Umbrella Academy was being shot,” Way said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “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.”
The first season cast included Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige, most of which are expected to come back in season 2.
The Umbrella Academy season 2 premieres on Netflix on July 31.
