The trailer finds the adoptive Hargreeves siblings scattered through different point of time, each of them somehow connected to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, a historical event that took place on November 22nd, 1963 (or at least that’s when it took place on our current living nightmare of a timeline, anyway).
The second season trailer promises lots of mind-blowing action, time travel hijinks, newly introduced villains, and more dysfunction and open distain among the Hargreeves siblings.
In the first season, Hargreeves siblings Vanya, the White Violin (Ellen Page), Allison, the Rumor (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Diego, the Kraken (David Castañeda), Luther, Spaceboy (Tom Hopper), Number Five, the Boy (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus, Séance (Robert Sheehan), and Ben, the Horror (Justin H. Min) were brought together by the death of the family patriarch (Colm Feore).
The Netflix series is based on the comics from Dark Horse created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, who also serve as co-executive producers for the series. Steve Blackman is the showrunner and an executive producer for the show, while Keith Goldberg, Jeff F. King, and Mike Richardson are serve as co-executive producers.
The trailer is the latest in the Netflix advertising campaign for Umbrella Academy’s second season, which as also included a poster full of Easter eggs and a socially-isolated dance set to pop star Tiffany’s 1987 recording of the song “I Think We’re Alone Now.”
While the premiere of the sophomore season of Umbrella Academy is still a few weeks in the future, there’s still time to catch up with the show’s first season – available for streaming now on Netflix – or to get ahold of the comics the show is based upon (check out Umbrella Academy: Apocalypse Suite).
