Fans will finally have their first glimpse at Netflix's The Umbrella Academy come tomorrow.
The news comes courtesy of the show's Instagram page, with a short video hyping a sneak peek at the 13-episode series. There's no teaser footage, but the video certainly keeps up the mystery of the show, with the caption "Grab your umbrellas" doing more than enough to excite diehard fans of the property.
Based on the acclaimed Dark Horse comics series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, The Umbrella Academy follows an estranged family of superheroes -- Spaceboy, the Kraken, the Rumor, the Séance, Number Five, the Horror and the White Violin -- investigating the suspicious death of their father, Reginald Hargreeves, who had adopted the wayward orphans as part of his titular academy to hone their powers and save the world. As they all work together to find out the truth, their sense of family begins to unravel due to their divergent personalities and hard-to-control abilities.
Recently, Kate Walsh joined the show to play the Handler, the charming head of a mysterious organization with a shadowy agenda involving the former students of the academy. John Magaro also signed up to play the love interest of Ellen Page's reclusive White Violin, as her journey to fit in with her siblings unfolds over the first season.
Filming began in January in Toronto. The show will be released in 2019 on Netflix, although the exact release date is still to be revealed.
Developed by Steven Blackman (Altered Carbon, Fargo), Netflix's The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Tom Hopper, Cameron Britton, Robert Sheehan, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Adam Godley, Aidan Gallagher, David Castañeda, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe and Colm Feore.
