“Umbrella Academy” Season 2 hits Netflix today: “X-Men” meets “Back to the Future”

Starting today, ten new episodes of the superhero series “The Umbrella Academy” are available for streaming. The dysfunctional superhero family is scattered over different years in the past after a time travel that went wrong.

The first season “The Umbrella Academy” was well received at the start in February 2019 (also in our series review), if not outstanding. Judging by the English-language reviews, the Netflix superhero series is getting even better in season two.

The consensus on Rotten Tomatoes is that the new episodes will be happier without losing the emotional core of the story about a group of outsiders – and lots of time travel fun is promised. “X-Men” meets “Back to the Future”: People with extraordinary strengths since birth, who are not always the best team players, travel wildly through time – and you can travel with them.

Starting today, July 31, 2020, the ten episodes, second season “The Umbrella Academy” will be available on Netflix.

The plot: A journey through time really goes wrong

Warning, spoilers will follow at the end of the first season. For the second season, however, we only reveal the initial situation.

We remember: At the end of the first season, Vanya (Ellen Page) triggered nothing less than the end of the world in a dark-phoenix-worthy fit, when an energy beam she had shot blew up the moon and the individual parts rained down on the earth. But Vanya’s family, number five (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) and the others, decide to take a trip back in time, which Klaus triggers, to solve the problem.

This is where the second season “Umbrella Academy” begins, in which the previously hastily drawn up time travel rescue plan turns out to be quite complicated. Unfortunately, after the interlude of a Soviet invasion, the Umbrella siblings end up in the Dallas area in different years from 1960 onwards (number five ends up in a nuclear disaster).

Now it is important that the heroes, who are scattered over time, somehow come together to prevent 123movies nuclear disaster and then the apocalypse. Good luck with it!
