The Umbrella Academy Netflix Renewal Status
Official Renewal Status: Pending (Last updated 02/15/2019)
We don’t expect to see any news on a renewal for of least a month after release. It takes of least a month or two for Netflix to gather all the viewer data for the series. So far the series has been really well received by subscribers worldwide so the chances for renewal are expected to be pretty high!

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Release Date
This of course entirely depends on when renewal is confirmed. 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. Therefore we can predict the time from when filming begins to the release date to be around 12-13 months. So at a minimum, we don’t expect to see a second season till late 2020.
