As for the Netflix show, it’s currently filming its second season. While we all know that film sets can be incredibly serious places, especially when filming, that didn’t stop Justin H. Min (Ben Hargreeves) from giving us a little behind-the-scenes action.

On The Umbrella Academy’s official Instagram page, Min is seen whispering about everyone else shooting right now. He then tells us he’s going to “give us a little BtS.” Just then, an alarm goes off on set, and he realizes they are shooting near him.
