    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!).

    that's a great news! I liked this show so much. I started using vpn from https://veepn.com/unblock-netflix/ to get access to the US content. It works great. Now I can watch my favorite shows from everywhere without restrictions.

    I am literally halfway through Season 2 (in the middle of episode 5, of 10 total) and it's been really good so far.

    The season was fantastic and that ending.... was obvious but, still a great cliffhanger. They need to renew it ASAP cause itís more than likely that we wonít see a S3 until sometime in 2022 (at the earliest).

    I finally finished Season 2!

    First, I had been spoiled about some of the ending. I knew about [SPOILER]The Sparrow Academy and Ben being alive[/SPOILER] and had figured out that the Hagreeves [SPOILER]made it back to their own time. Well, back to 2019, anyway[/SPOILER].

    I enjoyed it but some of it was very predictable [SPOILER]called it that Vanya and Sissy would not be together[/SPOILER]. I didn't care for the [SPOILER]meeting of the Fives[/SPOILER], though the stuff with Luther and that was funny.

    Also the reveal about Lila surprised me. I'm glad they are doing something with the [SPOILER]other special kids out of the 43[/SPOILER].

    I was a bit mad that the sibs [SPOILER]didn't help Vanya out when she asked them to but then they assembled at the car and all was forgiven[/SPOILER].

    Oh and I keep seeing surprise from fans that Reginald is an alien? I mean, we knew that from season 1, didn't we? I mean, when we saw him on his other planet (where his wife/girlfriend died?) and he came to Earth? I keep seeing people "oh, can't believe Reginald was an alien all along!" If not basically stated it was, at least, heavily implied that he was. At least to me. Anyone else?

    So yeah, good Season and can't wait for Season 3 (though is poor Five ever going to be able to get out of that uniform?! LOL).

    The series has been renewed for a 3rd season!!!🥳😁...with production to start in February. Iím optimistically hopeful but, cautious due to so many seriesí getting their season renewals just to have them reversed days or weeks later.

    I saw the news and am not surprised (nor do I fear cancellation), as the show is consistently one of Netflix's top ten for ratings.
