The Umbrella Academy  made quite an impact for Netflix this year, despite mixed reviews.  Netflix announced three new characters for the upcoming season two.  Ritu Arya (Humans), Yusuf Gatewood (Good Omens) and Marin Ireland (Y: The Last Man) were added as series regulars. 

According to THR, Arya will play “Lilia, an unpredictable chameleon with a twisted sense of humor; Gatewood will play Raymond, a smart and confident leader; and Ireland will play Sissy, a Texas mom who married young for all of the wrong reasons.”

Season one stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin Min are all returning as seven extraordinary individuals all born on the same day. They were all adopted by a billionaire who trained them to save the world.  The seven all went their separate ways after growing up but come back together after their father’s mysterious death.  

The Umbrella Academy is based on the graphic novels written by Gerard Way.  Way executive produces the series with show runner Steve Blackman, Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, and Gabriel Ba.

Production is just underway so there is no set premiere date as of yet.  Stay tuned to Geek Girl Authority for the latest news on The Umbrella Academy.
