The official Umbrella Academy Facebook page has released a short teaser video promoting tomorrow's release of the first trailer for the upcoming Netflix series.
In the video, a collection of six umbrellas, most likely representing the six adults of a "dysfunctional family of superheroes," walk away one by one until the words "TRAILER TOMORROW" are all that remains. The use of the umbrellas, evoking memories of a funeral, brings to mind that the former group of young superheroes reunite years after being separated due to the death of their father.

Based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, Netflix's The Umbrella Academy revolves around the Hargreaves family — an estranged group of superheroes — being forced to reunite following the mysterious death of their father, who previously presided over the titular school in order to teach his children to master their bizarre abilities so they would be able to save the world as needed.
Arriving on Netflix Feb. 18, 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.
