WATCH: The Explosive Opening Scene of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2

The Umbrella Academy is baaaaack… or will be soon, anyway! I was lucky enough to be able to watch Season 2 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ before the rest of the world, and I have to tell you: Season 2 is even better than the first!

In Season 1, Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scattered the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960.

Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain that they were the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).

Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.

If you’re excited, then you need to watch the explosive opening scene of the second season, which Netflix has released just now:
