Netflix Releases New Full Trailer For ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 1 Coming In February
Netflix has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming comic book adaptation ‘The Umbrella Academy‘ which premieres on the streaming service Friday, 15th February 2019.
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 a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
The main ‘Umbrella Academy’ cast stars Ellen Page (‘X-Men’, ‘Juno’, ‘Inception’) as Vanya, Tom Hopper (‘Game Of Thrones’, ‘Merlin’, ‘Black Sails’) as Luther (aka Spaceboy), Emmy Raver-Lampman (‘Hamilton’, ‘Hair’) as Allison (aka The Rumor), Robert Sheehan (‘Misfits’, ‘Fortitude’) as Klaus (aka The Séance), David Castañeda (‘Switched at Birth’, ‘Jane the Virgin’) as Diego (aka The Kraken), and Aidan Gallagher (‘Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn’) as Number Five (aka The Boy). Cameron Britton (‘Mindhunter’), Colm Feore (‘House of Cards’), Adam Godley (‘Breaking Bad’), Ashley Madekwe (‘Revenge’) and two-time Academy Award nominee Mary J. Blige (‘Mudbound’) also star.
‘The Umbrella Academy’ is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
