Netflix released a new trailer for The Umbrella Academy Thursday morning with an amazing look at the production of the series and a reveal of the main plot.
The last teaser used Tiffany’s greatest hit from 1987, “I think we’re along now.” This time around the trailer features a cover of ‘Hazy Shade of Winter’ by The Umbrella Academy comic book creator and former My Chemical Romance lead vocalist Gerard Way.
About The Umbrella Academy:
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 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.
Steve Blackman created the series for Netflix. The first season will run ten episodes.
The series stars 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, and Kate Walsh.
The Umbrella Academy hits Netflix on February 15, 2019.
