About The Umbrella Academy: Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya's 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right - the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they're the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which - spoiler alert! - turns out is a result of the group's disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?). Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.
Review: If you like superhero series, you will enjoy this. Season 1 introduces you to the characters and their powers, but with time travel always present in season 2 our heros go back in time. But time is always against them and separates them in random years, can they meet up again to stop the upcoming apocalypse that is constantly looming. Great to see a new side of these characters in Season 2.
