The second season of Netflix’s
The Umbrella Academy is finally upon us. After over a year of prolonged waiting,
we finally got to see what happened to the Hargreeves siblings after they narrowly
avoided being incinerated in the apocalypse, which they tried so desperately to
stop, by jumping into a time portal.
for superpowered siblings, however, while they did succeed in travelling back
in time to 1960s Dallas, they all arrived at separate times. Moreover, the apocalypse
followed them, too – albeit in the form of a nuclear war this time. Once
again, it was up to the Umbrella Academy to reunite and find a way to stop
the world from ending for a second time.
all the hyper-stylish action fans were hoping for alongside another phenomenal
soundtrack, the second season also expanded on its world and characters in fascinating
ways, introducing us to newcomer Lila (played spectacularly by Ritu Arya) and
hinting more about the eccentric and abusive life of Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore)
in the process.
the series climactic final episode ending on a nuclear bombshell of a cliff-hanger,
we’re left with plenty of questions about what the second season.
