The Umbrella Academy’s second season will be here soon! Netflix released an adorable video today announcing the premiere on July 31st. Although the video was very fun, it was also a sad sign of the times.

In the announcement video, Umbrella Academy actors Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher and Justin H. Min recreate one of the most famous scenes from season one where their characters Vanya, Luther, Allison, Klaus, Diego, Number Five and Ben dance to “I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany. This time however, the actors filmed themselves while in self isolation. This is where we are now in 2020.

That being said, the video does indeed bring joy in these dark times. The actors are 100% committed and the video did its job: getting us excited about season two. Check out both videos below. The second one has a side by side comparison to the sequence in season one. They really nailed it. 


The Umbrella Academy is based on the graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics.

The premise of the series is this. On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeve’s passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
