We’ve all been eagerly awaiting the second season of The Umbrella Academy and while we’ve been getting small updates frequently over the past while, we’re getting another good sign from star Justin Min.
In a new post, Min says he’s recording updated audio for the show from his closet at home with some help getting things set up by the crew.
The show finished filming back in November and is currently in post-production. Numerous 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 season 2. The images focus on the eyes of each of the Hargreaves family members in an umbrella silhouette.
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.”
Now, actor Justin Min is sharing a bit of personal news that he had to record audio for the show while isolating at home. With some help from the crew with setting things up, he’s able to put together ADR (Automated Dialog Replacement) for the new season. While this is typically done in a studio, the show is planning on proceeding through difficulties to deliver The Umbrella Academy season 2 as soon as possible.
