    I really enjoyed the first season of The Umbrella Academy. Iím ready for S2 but, Iíll settle for itís renewal first. It was a quirky entertaining comic book story...which unfolded quite interestingly with the flashbacks and the time travel eliminates. I also really liked the soundtrack to the series.

    it was entertaining and I am interested in how they handle the second season. I was just a little creeped out about the romantic interest between adopted siblings thing...not that The Flash didnít basically do that :/.

    There are some differences from the comics apparently...I wonder if they will go down the same route about their fathers backstory...though the flashback in the finale might be suggestive of that.

    I binged this series not too long ago. I enjoyed it. I tried reading the comics a long time ago but don't remember anything from them so this was all pretty new to me.

    I especially enjoyed Ellen Page as Vanya and Aidan Gallagher as Five. They were both great.

    And yes, the soundtrack is terrific.

    Looking forward to Season 2 when that comes out. I do wonder if we'll start out with them all as children again (I"m sure we'll be bringing back the adult versions at some point)?

    Season 2 has begun production, as can be seen in this video with the cast (minor spoilers, so be advised!).
