Now that the season 2 trailer has dropped, let’s talk about it! The Umbrella Academy, exactly where (or when) are they? I have all the details here.
The Umbrella Academy is one of the best shows on Netflix, if not the best. Season two is finally coming this month, and I am so excited for the rest of the world to see it! The season two trailer gave us a lot, but you might be wondering something about our favorite group of superhero misfits — just where are they exactly?
Don’t worry! I am here to break it down for you. Keep in mind not EVERYTHING is shown in the trailer, although they can basically be inferred from it. If you want to stay absolutely in the dark about this season, then skip it.
Warning: Minor Spoilers for The Umbrella Academy Season Two.

About The Umbrella Academy Season 2
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.
The series is based on a collection of comics and graphic novels created and written by My Chemical Romance lead singer Gerard Way.
