The Umbrella Academy, a series about a family of dysfunctional superheroes was a surprise and refreshing watch from Netflix. Debuting in February 2019, the series, based on a comic book, followed a family of extraordinary individuals who were roped in by a mysterious benefactor when they were young to become a team of crime fighting superheroes.
The series had elements of sci-fi and mystery and was also a lot of fun. As Season 1 ended on a cliff-hanger with the world seemingly ending, it’s good to know that Netflix has produced a follow-up season, which will drop on the streaming platform this July.
