If you’re here, by now you may have already watched the first season of The Umbrella Academy! Impressing us here at what’s on Netflix, the Superhero-Drama has already impressed fans worldwide. After a fantastic first season, all we want is to feast on more! Here’s your update on the renewal status and release date of The Umbrella Academy season 2.

The Umbrella Academy is a Netflix Original series based on the comics of the same name by creator Gerard Way. The concept for The Umbrella Academy came to Gerard while touring with My Chemical Romance. Inbetween the gigs and concerts he had begun to write his own superhero universe. The very first issue was released on September 19. 2007. Illustrator Gabriel Ba has designed the beautiful and unique look to the comic series. Upon the series release, the adaption has been well received by fans and critics alike.

A dysfunctional family of super-powered beings reunite after the death of their father. Having been apart for years the family aren’t exactly on friendly terms. When it’s revealed their father died under mysterious circumstances and a plot to destroy the world arises the Umbrella Academy must unite once again to save the world.

The Umbrella Academy Netflix Renewal Status

Official Renewal Status: Renewed (Last updated 04/02/2019)

Finally! We can now confirm that Netflix has officially renewed The Umbrella Academy for a second season. This comes as no surprise considering just how popular the superhero-drama has become in such a short period of time. With the story being left on such big cliffhanger fans would have ignited torches and brought their pitchforks in hope of renewal.

How have fans taken to The Umbrella Academy?

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Release Date

Now that renewal is confirmed we can speculate when the next season will arrive. Filming for the first season took 6 months from January 2018 to July 2018 and the release of the first season didn’t happen until February of the following year.

We can assume that the following season may follow suit. An Indiewire interview with showrunner Steve Blackman has revealed that each season takes up to 18 months to produce, therefore we aren’t expecting to see Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy until late 2020 at the earliest!
