Production is underway on The Umbrella Academy Season 2. Co-executive producer Gerard Way confirmed that new episodes are currently in the making for the show based on his and Gabriel Ba's comic of the same name.
"It begins. Umbrella Academy Season 2," Way wrote on his personal Instagram. He posted a picture of a sign that reads, "The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Table Read," meaning the cast is going through the script with producers. Way also added an image showing his name placard on the set.
The show's first season ended on a big cliffhanger, but information about the new season has been scarce. So far, we know that Netflix has ordered 10 episodes and that the second season will bring in a new director: Sylvain White.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 does not have a release date yet. Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin Min are expected to reprise their roles. Steve Blackman is continuing to act as showrunner and executive producer, with Sylvain White serving as a new director. Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy is currently available on Netflix.
