The Hargreeves are still missing in the latest ‘Umbrella Academy’ tease
We already know that The Umbrella Academy season 2 will officially hit the streaming platform on July 31, but this new tease will most likely be our first new look at the Hargreeves.
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.
Just over a week ago, we learned when season 2 of The Umbrella Academy would be hitting Netflix in a fun, dance-filled video with the cast. You can watch that below.
Now, in a new teaser clip, it seems we'll be getting our first look at the Hargreeves on May 28 in the form of "time travel composites." These will most likely tell where, and when our favorite family of misfits are getting into trouble.
have you seen the Hargreeves? time travel composites coming tomorrow...
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.”
Stay tuned in for May 28 when we're sure there will be some great news. Until then, rest assured knowing that the entire fandom is as excited as you with some reactions below.
More on The Umbrella Academy
It has been a less than a year since the third volume of The Umbrella Academy comic wrapped up but Gerard Way said in a recent Instagram post that he’s working away at the fourth volume right now.
In the post, he details more information about the potential comic idea he has tying in with the Quarantine Coloring Book project’s recent entry and reveals at the end that the comic will have to wait until he’s done with his main focus which is the fourth Umbrella Academy volume.
The third volume of Gerard Way’s The Umbrella Academy comic series wrapped with the final issue coming in June 2019. The third volume faced lengthy delays though. Its creation was around the time Way was working on getting back into music. It took about a decade from being announced at San Diego Comic Con in 2009 to fully see release.
Now though, the fourth volume could see a much shorter release given Gerard Way’s recent post.
In it, he discusses the nine character designs revealed as his contribution to the Quarantine Coloring Book project.
In the description for the page, the character study is laid out as an idea for a comic series that could see the light of day.
“This piece, “Pink Station Zero”, is a character study he did for a comic that may come to life one day. It is an idea that he loves and that is very dear to him. This makes it even more special for him to share it with #tqcb first. Enjoy!!”
He also revealed two colorized versions and explained a bit more about the idea.
The first is done by Matt Wilson which is based on the second which Gerard ended up providing as a reference point. He says he won’t reveal the title of the comic. But he says “it is something I worked on day and night for a few months back some years ago.”
The comic is “a somewhat ongoing limited series.”
He'll be releasing around six issues at a time over the course of several years. Many of the ideas seem firmly in place, but after reaching out to the artist Gerard Way wanted, the artist was booked for several years.
So, for the time being the idea was shelved. But, Way found a new artist now and says “it’s a matter of when I can write this.”
He’s working away at new material for The Umbrella Academy which is why there might be a delay.
“I am in the middle of scripting the long awaited Volume 4 of the Umbrella Academy, which is my main focus and I’m very excited about that.”
You can see his post below.
