The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Returns To Netflix July 31

Netflix has announced the official premiere date for the upcoming second season of Gerard Way’s hit superhero series The Umbrella Academy which will see the return of the Hargreeves siblings following the first season finale’s time-travel cliffhanger. Season 2 is scheduled to make its debut on Friday, July 31.

In season one, 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 Hargreeves’ 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.

The series stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, and Kate Walsh.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics.

The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix. Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will return as executive producer and showrunner for Season 2, with additional executive producers Jeff F. King (Hand of God), Bluegrass Television, and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá will serve as co-executive producers.

Here’s A First Look At Cursed – Coming To Netflix Summer 2020

Netflix has released the first-look photos for their upcoming fantasy drama series titled Cursed, giving us a glimpse of Katherine Langford as the woman who is destined to become the Lady of the Lake in King Arthur’s story. The 10-episode series will be available for streaming sometime this summer.

Based on Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller’s New York Times bestselling book, Cursed is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther. The series is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.

The series will be led by Golden Globe nominee Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why, Love Simon, Knives Out) as Nimue. It will also feature Devon Terrell as Arthur, Gustaf Skarsgård as Merlin, Daniel Sharman as Weeping Monk, Sebastian Armesto as King Uther Pendragon, Matt Stokoe as Gawain, Lily Newmark as Pym, Shalom Brune-Franklin as Igraine, Emily Coates as Sister Iris, Billy Jenkins as Squirrel, Bella Dayne as Red Spear, and Peter Mullan as Father Carden.

Cursed series is created and executive produced by authors Tom Wheeler and Frank Miller with Wheeler set as the showrunner. It is also produced by Alex Boden with Silenn Thomas serving as an executive producer.

Howard Klein/3Arts (The Office) serves as executive producer, with Daniels as showrunner.
