Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy has returned for another season and boy, this one was a journey. The season begins in 1963 Dallas, just 10 days before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. First scattered through the first years of the decade before reuniting thanks to a little luck and some of Five’s (Aidan Gallagher) handiwork, The Umbrella Academy — Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Ben (Justin H. Min), and Vanya (Ellen Page) — reunite to try and prevent yet another apocalypse. They manage to do that, but end up facing off against a different, unexpected foe at the end of the season. After a harrowing battle, the team returns home to 2019, only to find things are not exactly what they seem.
The cliffhanger ending for The Umbrella Academy Season 2 raises some key questions about what is next for the team. If the show ends up getting renewed for Season 3, then those questions will demand answers — but prepare yourself, because these questions are going to twist your brain into a pretzel the more you think about ’em. Then again, that’s half the fun of thinking about The Umbrella Academy, right?
