The second installment of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy premiered on July 31, and we have a million questions. The new season picks up after the ominous season-one finale in which a Vanya-induced apocalypse in 2019 forced the family of superpowered siblings to tap into Number Five’s ability to jump through time and space. Though Five does save his family from that year’s impending doom, he flubs the time travel, and they all land in Dallas, TX, separated throughout three years starting in 1960. When he lands in 1963, he sets out to reunite with his siblings – but things are never that easy with the Hargreeves, are they?Five finds himself in the middle of a nuclear doomsday that his siblings are unsurprisingly at the center of. He learns that they brought the end of the world with them from 2019, and now he has to find a way to bring everyone back together, save the world , return to their original time, and keep from destroying the world. But it takes more than a simple search to get all his siblings in one place. Since their separate arrivals, Luther’s gotten into illegal boxing and working for an infamous Dallas figure, Diego is trapped in an asylum, Allison is thick in the Civil Rights Movements, Klaus has started a cult , and Vanya’s playing nanny after being found with her memories wiped clean.
