The World Ends Again In ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2 Trailer

by Erik Amaya

The Hargreeves family may have escape the apocalypse of 2019, but as Five (Aidan Gallagher) quickly discovers in this new trailer for the upcoming second season of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, the end of the world has followed them back in time. Now, the scheduled apocalypse will occur shortly after the Kennedy assassination. And, sadly for Five, the rest of his siblings have settled into mid-century lives — although we imagine some are enjoying those “good old days” more than others.

And considering most of the family is made up of marginalized groups, it will be interesting to see how little of a paradise the 1960s will be for them. Or will the era offer some sort of cozy blanket feel for them? Either way, they have five days to save the planet.

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Justin H. Min, and David Castañeda return for the time-warped second season, in which the family must reunite (again) and save the world from, well, it seems like they have to save it from themselves.

The Umbrella Academy returns July 31st
