Tv Season Info

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 scatters 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 they're 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.

Critic Reviews for The Umbrella Academy Season 2

All Critics (85) | Top Critics (16)

"The Umbrella Academy" is left as a show that robs itself of any meaningful past or future.

Aug 3, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

The Umbrella Academy is what you get when you mix Wes Anderson with Matthew Vaughn, stuff them full of Red Bull and Adderall, and give them a Spotify Premium subscription. Yes, that's a compliment.

Jul 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Once again the series' wry sense of humor shines through, striking a fine balance with the spectacle and the emotional oomph. Great stuff.

Aug 20, 2020 | Full Review…

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 would be watchable even if it only fixed the glaring surface-level issues of its earlier iteration, but it also goes one step further by actually trying to mean something.

Jul 30, 2020 | Full Review…

[Ellen Page] has crafted this delicate and vulnerable side to Vanya that we have rarely seen, but it's addictive to watch and yes, we need to see more of it in season three.

Jul 27, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The second season of the Umbrella Academy series is something spectacular. [Full review in Spanish]

Mar 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is a rousing success, boasting an abundance of offbeat humor, exciting set pieces and a killer soundtrack. A few minor nitpicks aside, a triumphant return for Netflix's flawed family of superheroes.

Jan 28, 2021 | Full Review…

While the series still fails to meet its potential, season two is stronger than season one, and allows its cast a chance to shine.

Aug 30, 2020 | Rating: 3.3/5 | Full Review…

Less dysfunctional estranged family and more light-hearted time-traveling fun, but that doesn't mean the show loses its emotional core - because it still hits HARD.

Aug 27, 2020 | Rating: 4.5 | Full Review…

This season brought a new level and depth across the board for these characters [...] and we start to get hints into the [origins] mystery. One of my favorite shows of 2020!

Aug 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Netflix's Umbrella Academy Season 1 was the queer superhero story many of us had been waiting for--after another year and a half, Season 2 did not disappoint.

Aug 23, 2020 | Full Review…

A perfect follow up to a great Season 1 in that it's equally great. The mix of humour and drama is great and the storylines and acting top notch. Can't recommend it enough!

Audience Reviews for The Umbrella Academy: Season 2

  • Jun 18, 2021
    More sure of itself this time around and still thrillingly unpredictable, the Umbrella Academy reunites for a load of hijinks in the ‘60s with its signature blend of serious drama, over-the-top violence and dark comedy, but still leaves a few of its more blatant questions unanswered.
  • May 26, 2021
    Basically the same as season 1, just more illogical. I have no clue why this show was rated that high. Besides that too much political correctness propaganda. Altough I agree that the basic story behind is somehow interesting, because of this I give it 2 stars.
  • May 12, 2021
    I hate when I get left in cliffhangers...
  • May 05, 2021
    Barely any action. Thats all you need to know. And way too much social commentary making every episode a lecture.
  • Apr 14, 2021
    What a great season. The crazy themes are well organized and I wasn't bored for one second. It's funny, strange and incredibly interesting. Loved it.
  • Mar 22, 2021
    Cast is great! Their connection and bind is great and really shows! I enjoyed it a lot!
  • Feb 12, 2021
    The second season stared in such a way that Hitchcock would be proud: with a monster of an earthquake. From there it is set up with great tempo and focus, but looses those qualities somewhere in the middle and becomes slow-burner drama, although still with a collection of very fine moments (like every time when sir Reginald Hargreeves is onscreen). It is not until the final last two episodes or so that it goes back to all the action and real storytelling and not mere pointless character development. And then it ends, and with a very fine cliffhanger to. It may have lost some of its uniqueness on the way, especially at this impossibly dull farm that Vanya spend her time, but nevertheless still is weird enough to establish itself among the present-day superhero television.
  • Jan 28, 2021
    Another look into this world and it's complex characters. Regrettably, it just take a few episodes to finally arrive at that moment.
  • Jan 22, 2021
    It took me a little longer to get into Season 2 as I had fallen in love with the storyline of season 1 and I had to re-think some of the characters and see them in a new way. It goes without saying that it was wonderful - and for me the knock-out is always the Handler and her fab outfits! Roll on season 3 - I can't wait but I have to ....
  • Jan 21, 2021
    A awesome season, better than the first.
