Get ready for the new daily show

Looks like Umbrella Academy is set for Season 2

March 1st, 2019 by Marc Comments

Great news! Umbrella Academy has reportedly been renewed by Netflix for a second season.

The show, based on a graphic novel by former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, is a massive hit for Netflix and a great series to boot – I’m seven episodes in and hooked!

The series follows a ‘family’ of kids who were mysteriously born on the same day and exhibit unique super powers who have to fight time travellers and fate to save the world from an unknown apocalypse.


Season one Starred Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, and Mary J. Blige and we’d expect a reunion come season 2

Season 2 will begin filming at the end of 2019 in Toronto, with Peter Hoar signed on to direct the first episode. Hoar directed the pilot for the series, as well as episode 10 of season one.

Happy friday!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. 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….
