The successful run of Season 1 forced the makers to come out with Season 2 as early as July 2020. The makers have already outed the date and synopsis. Seems like the show lovers will not have to wait for very long to watch the trailer.
Speculation Around Season 2
Season 1 ended on the cliff-hanger where all the main characters ended up in the past as teenagers. But to the surprise of the viewers, the adopted siblings ended up in different time zones of the 1960s spanning up to three years.

Season 2 comes with a sigh of relief for the viewers since all the Hargreeves siblings are alive and had a narrow escape from the apocalypse. The show is based upon the novel with the same title ‘The Umbrella Academy’. All of this happened because of the powers of Five played by Aidan Gallagher.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 will show Five trying to get all the siblings together. Five will also have a huge task at his hand of convincing them to stop the forthcoming apocalypse. Moreover, he will also have to bring all of them together so that they can return to their present. This is not going to a cakewalk for Five as one of them has already moved on with his life in the time they seem to be stuck in.
Original Cast and some new additions
Apart from Aidan Gallagher, the show’s earlier cast like Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Ellen Page, David Castaneda, Justin H. Min, and Emmy Raver-Lampman have been confirmed but less is known about the other cast members of the show. Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, and Marin Ireland are ready to join the cast in the brand-new Season.
