Earlier this year, the cast confirmed production for the second season was underway while sharing some footage from the first table read.

“You guys we have some amazing stuff for you this season can’t wait for you to see it,” Emmy Raver-Lampman said at the beginning.

We then proceeded to see the whole gang, finishing with Justin H. Min, who plays Ben Hargreeves, sharing a few words.

“You know who’s back? Ben is back. That’s right you guys. We are so excited to finally have the family back together to start shooting season two of Umbrella Academy,” Min said.
