The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy is a new superhero original Netflix series that follows seven siblings who were all born on the same day. Strangely, all their mothers weren’t pregnant at the start of that day.

A rich man from America has adopted and trained them.

Vanya (or Number Seven) doesn’t have her superpowers until the very last episodes as she was too powerful and she could destroy the world.

The author Gerard Way spent a while wanting to make his comic books into a TV series so when Netflix approached him he was quite happy to do the series with them. Gerard used to formerly be a part of My Chemical Romance, a rock band from the 2000’s.

The Umbrella Academy has been given another season but Gerard said it took 18 months to film the first season so we won’t be getting a new season for a couple years or so.
