The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy, an American superhero series, created for Netflix by Steve Blackman, aired for the first time February 15, 2019. A few months after the first season premiered, it renewed for a second season which ultimately aired July 31, 2020. Months later, it renewed for a third season which aired June 22, 2022. After the release of the third season, Blackman stated that if they decide to pick up The Umbrella Academy for a fourth season, it would be the final season in the series. He said he would like to keep it as close to the comic books as possible. The comics this series is based on also goes by the name of The Umbrella Academy.

The Umbrella Academy starts off showing 43 women who all happen to have kids at the same exact time at noon on the date of October 1, 1989. These women had absolutely no symptoms of pregnancy, that is until they were giving birth. Ultimately seven of the kids got adopted by a rich man who made a team of superheroes called The Umbrella Academy. Six of the kids set off to go fight crime. While the remaining child stays back as the rich man claims she doesn’t have any powers. The first season takes place in the present-day where they are no longer under the care of the rich man. And all the siblings fell apart. That is until they end up learning that the rich man had passed away. And that an apocalypse is going to take place. The siblings get back together to try and prevent the apocalypse.

After The Umbrella Academy aired, it received really positive reviews. This series actually ended up as the third most popular show in 2019 on the Netflix platform. And once the second season aired, it ranked as the number one most watched show on the Netflix platform. Overall, this series has had great reviews.
