Oooooooh… new Umbrella Academy material!

Netflix has dropped a bunch of new character posters for the upcoming – and highly anticipated – second season of the hit show which is due on July 31st.

And there may be a clue about the show in the posters. Are you surprised?

You may recall at the end of season one the family vanished in the face of certain destruction as the earth was pulverised and the moon exploded, well, there’s something interesting about these posters.

In the images (below), the Hargreeves siblings — Luther/One (Tom Hopper), Diego/Two (David Castañeda), Allison/Three (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus/Four (Robert Sheehan), Five (Aidan Gallagher), Ben/Six (Justin H. Min), and Vanya/Seven (Ellen Page) all share a similar composition, with their faces mostly obscured by their umbrellas, however, you may notice Five’s face seems to be covered in blood.

There is also some speculation online about the order in which the posters were released: Ben, then Klaus, Allison, Luther, Diego, Vanya, and Five.

The show itself makes about deal about order and rank in the Hargreaves mansion, so could the order the posters arrived be some sort of clue about something from the show?

This was further spurred on my star Min tweeting: “Trying to understand why you posted in this order.”

What could it all mean!? Let me know your theories, gang…

He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
