The Umbrella Academy‘s second season is still set to go and today we’re getting a new update on what to expect from the show’s music composer Jeff Russo.
In a new interview with Comicbook.com, Russo talks about how the music will bring something new and revisit themes from the first season while introducing “a big change in setting.”
The show finished filming back in November and is currently in post-production. Several cast members shared photos celebrating the end of filming, giving their thanks to their fellow cast and crew.
Shortly after, the show ended up sharing the first posters for the upcoming season. The images focus on the eyes of each of the Hargreaves family members in an umbrella silhouette.
Blackman shared a photo of the show in post-production confirming it wouldn’t face any release delays like other shows and movies have been.
Now, we’re getting a new update on what the next season has in store.
Jeff Russo scored the first season of the show and is returning for a second round.
In his interview with Comicbook.com, he explains that a big setting change is coming. He dives into how they’re planning to approach incorporating music in the show revealing it will take a similar direction as season one.
“Well, there’s definitely a big change in setting, that’s for sure,” Russo says. “And we tried not to change too much the approach of how to tell the story musically. I mean, we used a lot of really great songs in season one. We’re going to be using a lot of great songs in season two. We use score in a very meaningful way to support the emotional arcs of all of our characters in season one. We’ll be doing that again in season two. There are some new characters that we’re going to be having some fun with from a score perspective and that’s always fun, coming up with new thematic ideas for new characters and how to underscore them. So there’s a lot of new and then there’s a lot of the same. It’s a lot of both, but it’s definitely a thrill ride this year.”
The new season still doesn’t have a release date but stay tuned for more info on that.
