In the new teaser, the members of the cast are social distancing and dance around their homes to Tiffany‘s rendition of Tommy James & the Shondells‘ “I Think We’re Alone Now.” The track was also recently covered by Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong.
The show finished filming back in November and then went into 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.
Now, we finally now when the highly-anticipated new season will hit Netflix.

In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, The Umbrella Academy’s music composer, Jeff Russo explained that a big setting change is coming. He also went into how they’re planning to approach incorporating music in the show revealing it will take a similar direction as season 1.
“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.”
