Ahead of its Friday premiere, Netflix has released the opening scene for The Umbrella Academy Season 2, which is super epic!
“What the hell did they do now? Watch an explosive opening scene from The Umbrella Academy season 2. Dropping into your timeline on Netflix July 31,” the video description teases.
The footage shows an alternate timeline where the Soviets are invading the United States which sees the members of The Umbrella Academy using their powers in battle.
The Season 2 description further offers:
Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?). Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.

Based on the award-winning comic book series of the same name created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics, The Umbrella Academy is a live-action series that follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes – Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five – as they work together to solve their adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves’ mysterious death, while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
