The Umbrella Academy

The first trailer for ‘The Umbrella Academy’ looked good but this one should help draw you in if you were still undecided to binge-watch the series. Gerard Way, the singer of My Chemical Romance, found a hit with his comic series that resonated with fans and critics alike and won an Eisner Award for the Best Finite Series/Limited Series in 2008 and now we’re getting the live-action take on it. His book introduces us to a dysfunctional family of superheroes and they not only have to solve the mystery of their father’s death but also only have eight days to save the world.

You can see from the trailer, the cast does act like a family and is quite clearly a dysfunctional one at that. It is hard to tell how true to the comic it will be but with Way attached as an Executive Producer, you can’t imagine that he would have signed off on this if too many liberties were being taken.

This 10-episode first season will star Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, Kate Walsh.

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 Hargreaves’ 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.
