Umbrella Academy: 11 Biggest Questions After Season 2

Say hello to... the Sparrow Academy?!

Borderline

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.

Unfortunately 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.

Containing 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.

With 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.

Beware of massive spoilers ahead.
