Along with Netflix announcing its live-action adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá's Eisner award-winning Umbrella Academy will debut Feb. 15, 2019, the streaming service also released a set of first look images and character posters introducing viewers to the series cast.
The three photos give fans the opportunity to see what their favorite Umbrella Academy characters will look like on the small screen, with Sir Reginald Hargreeves' adopted children standing under umbrellas in the rain as Luther pours what appears to be his ashes to the ground, two characters standing in a hallway, and the main cast gathered together at a table as they look over a newspaper featuring Hargreeves on the cover.
Finally, Netflix unveiled seven posters describing each individual character. Number 1 is Super Strong, Number 2 is Super Bitter, Number 3 is Super Famous, Number 4 is Super High, Number 5 is Super Old, Number 6 is Super Dead, and Number 7 is Super... Ordinary.
