The cast features Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, John Magaro, Adam Godley, Colm Feore, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, Marin Ireland, and Kate Walsh. The adaptation began development as a film optioned by Universal Pictures in 2011.

The first season was released on Netflix on February 15, 2019. In April 2019, Netflix reported that 45 million households had watched season one during its first month of release, thus becoming one of the most streamed series of the year. That same month following the success of the first season, the series was renewed for a second season, which was released on July 31, 2020. Both seasons received positive reviews from critics. In November 2020, the series was renewed for a third season, set to be released on June 22, 2022.

The series has received a number of accolades, including six Emmy nominations.

The Umbrella Academy is set in a universe where 43 women around the world give birth simultaneously at noon on October 1, 1989, despite none of them showing any sign of pregnancy until labor began. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves and turned into a superhero team that he calls "The Umbrella Academy." Hargreeves gives the children numbers rather than names, until all but one are eventually named by their robot-mother, Grace, as Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Ben, and Vanya. While putting six of his children to work fighting crime, Reginald keeps Vanya apart from her siblings' activities, as she supposedly demonstrates no powers of her own.

The first season is set in the present day, where Luther is part ape and has lived on the Moon for four years, Allison is a famous actress, Vanya is a violinist, Klaus has a drug addiction, Five disappeared sixteen years earlier, Ben, now deceased, is a ghost able to converse only with Klaus, and Diego has become a vigilante with a penchant for trouble. The estranged siblings learn that Reginald has died and gather for his funeral. Five returns from the future, revealing that a global apocalypse is imminent, but is chased by time-travelling operatives Hazel and Cha-Cha. Meanwhile, the reunited siblings try to uncover the secrets behind Reginald Hargreeves' life, as their dysfunctional relationships are strained further.

The second season sees the siblings scattered in Dallas throughout different times in the early 1960s (as a result of the events of the first season), establishing lives for themselves. Five arrives there on November 25, 1963, minutes before a nuclear doomsday that is linked to JFK not being assassinated, but with the help of Hazel manages to travel back ten days. While being hunted by a trio of Swedish assassins, Five finds his siblings, who have each made new lives, and attempts to reunite them in order to stop this new apocalypse.

Main

  • Elliot Page as Viktor Hargreeves / The White Violin / Umbrella Number Seven, a meek violinist who is somewhat alienated from his siblings as he has no apparent supernatural abilities, and later wrote a damning tell-all book about his childhood. In reality, he can convert sound waves into physical force, an ability his father suppressed with drugs as he considered it too powerful to control. The character is known as Vanya until he comes out as a transgender man in the third season, corresponding with Page's own transition. T.J. McGibbon and Alyssa Gervasi portray the character as a teenager and a 4-year-old, respectively.
  • Tom Hopper as Luther Hargreeves / Spaceboy / Umbrella Number One, an astronaut with super strength. He lived on the Moon for four years as a mission from his father. He was the only one of his siblings who did not leave the team and during a mission he was severely injured. To save his life, Reginald injected him with a serum that turned his upper body into that of a non-human ape. Cameron Brodeur portrays a younger Luther.
  • David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves / The Kraken / Umbrella Number Two, a rebellious troublemaker with the mild telekinetic ability to curve the trajectory of anything, including knives and bullets. His jealousy of Luther for his father's affections led to him becoming a vigilante after leaving the Umbrella Academy. Blake Talabis portrays a younger Diego.
  • Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison Hargreeves / The Rumor / Umbrella Number Three, a celebrity with the ability to control minds and bend reality with the phrase "I heard a rumor...". Eden Cupid and Jordana Blake portray Allison as a teenager and a 4-year-old, respectively.
  • Robert Sheehan as Klaus Hargreeves / The Séance / Umbrella Number Four, a flamboyant drug and alcohol addict with the ability to communicate with the dead and temporarily make them corporeal. Dante Albidone portrays a younger Klaus.
  • Aidan Gallagher as Five Hargreeves / The Boy / Umbrella Number Five, a boy with the ability to jump through space and time. After traveling to the future he ended up in a post-apocalyptic world, unable to get back. He survived on his own for decades before being recruited into The Commission, a secretive agency that keeps tabs on the established timeline of the world, finding and eliminating those who would threaten it. He eventually betrayed them in order to get back to his time to warn his family of the impending apocalypse. Returning to his time causes his then 58-year-old body to revert to his thirteen-year-old body. Jim Watson plays an adult Five and Sean Sullivan portrays an elderly Five.

  • John Magaro as Leonard Peabody / Harold Jenkins (season 1), Vanya's love interest. As a child, he was an admirer of the Umbrella Academy and begged to join, since he was born on the same day as the result of a normal pregnancy, but was humiliated by Reginald. He later discovers Reginald's diary, detailing Vanya's potential, and inserts himself into her life with the goal of manipulating her into discovering and using her powers. After Vanya discovers Harold's ruse, he is impaled by telekinetically moved household objects. Jesse Noah Gruman portrays a younger Harold.
  • Adam Godley as Phinneus Pogo, Reginald's closest assistant, and an intelligent chimpanzee.

Development

A film version of the comic book series The Umbrella Academy was optioned by Universal Studios. Originally, screenwriter Mark Bomback was hired to write the screenplay; Rawson Marshall Thurber reportedly replaced him in 2010. There had been little talk of the film from that time. In an interview with Newsarama at the 2012 New York Comic Con, Way mentioned that there have been "good talks" and a "really good script", but that it was "kind of up to the universe".[citation needed]

On July 7, 2015, it was announced that The Umbrella Academy would be developed into a television series, rather than an original film, produced by Universal Cable Productions. On July 11, 2017, it was officially announced that Netflix had greenlit a live-action series adaptation of The Umbrella Academy premiering in 2019, with Way and Bá acting as executive producers. Jeremy Slater wrote the script for the pilot episode, and Steve Blackman serves as showrunner. The first season of The Umbrella Academy was released on Netflix on February 15, 2019.

Due to the success of the series, on April 2, 2019, the series was renewed for a second season, which was released on July 31, 2020. It was also confirmed that the second season will consist of ten episodes, like the previous season. The season release date remained unknown until May 18, 2020, when a teaser trailer concept was released where the main cast danced to "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany. Steve Blackman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he wants to stay in the course of what the comics are doing without deviating too much. On June 26 it was revealed that the series will be taking place at the 60s in Dallas, due to the time travel from the end of the previous season.

On November 10, 2020, Netflix renewed the series for a third season which is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2022.

Casting

On November 9, 2017, Netflix confirmed that Elliot Page had joined the cast and that he would play Vanya Hargreeves, also known as the White Violin. On November 30, 2017, it was revealed that Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher had joined the cast as the rest of the Hargreeves siblings. On February 12, 2018, Netflix announced that Academy Award nominee Mary J. Blige would appear in the series as the sadistic time-travel assassin Cha-Cha. Colm Feore joined the cast as Sir Reginald Hargreeves, the adoptive father of the siblings, on February 16, 2018, alongside Cameron Britton, Adam Godley and Ashley Madekwe. On February 28, 2018, it was announced that John Magaro has been cast as a series regular character.

In January 2020, Justin H. Min and Kate Walsh were promoted to series regulars for the second season, following their recurring roles in the first season. On September 10, 2019, Netflix announced that three additional actors — Ritu Arya, Marin Ireland and Yusuf Gatewood — would join the cast. On October 17, 2019, John Kapelos announced that he would be joining the recurring cast as Jack Ruby, the man who killed Lee Harvey Oswald. On January 11, 2021, it was announced that Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, and Jake Epstein joined the cast as part of the Sparrow Academy for the third season. In January 2022, Javon Walton revealed in an interview he joined the cast in an undisclosed role for the third season.

Filming

Principal photography for the first season began on January 15, 2018, in Toronto. Gerard Way posted on his Instagram account an illustration by Fabio Moon of the cast and crew doing the first table read of the script in Toronto. He also revealed a picture of the first day on the set. Additional filming took place in Hamilton, Ontario.

For the theatre where Vanya performed with her violin, the crew used the Elgin Theatre, alongside the Winter Garden Theatre. Mazzoleni Concert Hall was used to represent the theatre's exterior. The exterior of the mansion was filmed at a building in Hamilton, while the interiors were filmed in studio. The Joey & Toby Tanenbaum Opera Centre was filmed for an outside scene and LIUNA Station was used for a bank robbery scene. A laboratory at the University of Toronto was filmed to represent the Meritech Prosthetics building. The filming concluded on July 18, 2018.

Filming for the second season began on June 16, 2019. And like the previous season, it was filmed in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario, despite the series taking place in Dallas, Texas. Exterior shots were taken in Dallas such as the Dealey Plaza. Filming concluded on November 23, 2019.

Filming for the third season began on February 7, 2021, and concluded on August 28, 2021.

Visual effects

Visual effects for the series are handled by SpinVFX, Weta Digital, Folks VFX, Soho VFX, Pixomondo, Deluxe VFX, Digital Film Tree, BOT VFX, Studio 8, Exceptional Minds and MARZ

VFX supervisor Everet Burrell confirmed that he used traditional art techniques for early concept art and referenced great actors with iconic faces. Burrell called Weta Digital, who previously worked for the rebooted Planet of the Apes series, to develop the visual effects for the character of Pogo. Ken Hall provided the motion capture for Pogo using a gray suit to later make additions to his captures to create the CGI of the chimpanzee, with Adam Godley making the facial expressions and voice acting of the character.

SpinVFX confirmed that they delivered at least 563 shots for the series. To make the effects of the show, the team required a series of complex effect simulations, creature development, and massive destructions.

For the effects of Number Five jumping through time and space, Burrell wanted to make the effects look organic, and liquidy, representing how much time and the world bends around him when he jumps, and how quick it should be. For these effects, he used more than 30 frames in the first episodes, however with the progress of the series, this reduced to only 10 frames. To that footage, the team iterated on several kinds of spatial jump effects, all the way from heavy distortion to subtler images. The visual effects team started with some R&D tests. At the end, the final effect, called the "jelly vision", was used to make the series, with Burrell expressing: "as if you're pushing your hand through a jelly membrane, just for a few seconds, and then it pops. It's really, really subtle, but you get a little bit of texture, you get a little bit of striations, almost like the universe is bending as he does his spatial jumps."

In an interview with Burrell he confirmed that to develop the sequences where time is frozen, they took several background shots on location before returning to their stage to shoot the dialogue between Five and The Handler in front of a green screen. They called this effect "Three-Strip" in honor of the Technicolor process used in the 1930s.

The second season used 400 shots from the Folks VFX Montreal team under the guidance of VFX supervisor Laurent Spillemaecker to create time portal effects seen throughout the season, particularly Five's special ability. Meanwhile, Spillemaecker's crew recreated events surrounding JFK's fateful Dallas visit, while including The Umbrella Academy's superpower interactions. Pictures and references from the 60s were provided to create and later to be used as digital matte paintings and CG environments, to transform Canada into the show's setting, 1960s Dallas.

The opening scene of the second season, where the siblings fight the Soviets on a Dallas street, was the most complicated to do, being nearly completely CGI. It was realised on a 360 degree bluescreen backlot set which was 15 feet tall and 200 feet by 60 feet. The only real things that weren't made of CGI, were the tank, soldiers, cast and the rubble on the ground. The set was LiDAR scanned so that the director, Sylvian White could walk around using a VR edition of the iPad. They used a Phantom running at 700 frames per second on a camera stick. The scene was also divided in seven parts, beginning with Number Five's arrival at 1963, and concluding before Diego's first lines. For safety reasons the crew couldn't fire the AK-47s at Diego so they were forced to do multiple passes.

Music

The show's score albums were released for season 1 & 2. Jeff Russo was hired to compose the show's score. During an interview he revealed that the crew needed to use a subtle hand with the score and that he wanted the score to be thematic, by not trying to push too much on the weird and too much on the horrific aspect of the show and the story.

Season 1

On the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, 76% of 92 critic reviews are positive for the first season, with an average rating of 7.2/10. Critics' consensus on the website reads, "The Umbrella Academy unfurls an imaginative yarn with furtive emotion and an exceptionally compelling ensemble, but the series' dour sensibility often clashes with its splashy genre trappings." Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the season a score of 61 out of 100 based on 22 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

Merrill Barr from Forbes praised the series, and wrote, "If you're looking for a pulpy show with lots of action, melodramatic plotting and eccentric characters then The Umbrella Academy is your ticket." Lorraine Ali from Los Angeles Times in a positive review wrote, "The Umbrella Academy stands out among the countless other superhero series splashed across billboards and your viewing queues." Catherine Gee from the Daily Telegraph gave the series a positive response and commented, "If it does return for a second run, it would be nice to see some more genuinely fresh ideas - without the over-reliance on tried, tested and tired tropes from years past." Adam Graham from The Detroit News commented the series is a worthy enrollment, praising the series for its themes about a dysfunctional family and the characters. Kambole Campbell from Little White Lies considered the series as something to enjoy with a plenty of surprises for someone who has not read the comics, and praised the way that the series interpreted the abusive parental childhood relationship and how at the end this affects the children in their adulthood.

Some critics pointed out similarities between The Umbrella Academy, DC Universe's Doom Patrol and Marvel Comics's X-Men series, both positively and negatively.

Some Jewish writers have criticized The Umbrella Academy for its portrayal of the Handler. In particular, her use of a Yiddish idiom and her membership in a secret society that discreetly causes catastrophic events were together perceived as an antisemitic stereotype of Jewish people secretly and malevolently controlling world events. Amanda Bowman, Vice President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, wrote that "The use of a Yiddish saying by the evil boss of an organisation which controls the world's timeline is clearly an anti-Semitic trope." The Handler was again shown speaking Yiddish in the second season, leading some to complain that the show hadn't done enough to address Jewish viewers' concerns.

Season 2

For the second season, Rotten Tomatoes identified 91% of 89 reviews as positive, with an average rating of 7.9/10. The website's critics consensus states, "Proof that time can heal almost all wounds, The Umbrella Academy's exhilarating second season lightens its tonal load without losing its emotional core, giving the super siblings room to grow while doubling down on the time traveling fun." The season garnered a weighted average score of 67 out of 100 from 12 critics on Metacritic, signifying "generally favorable reviews".

Scott Bryan from BBC commented, "The less you think about the plot, the more you enjoy the ride, and the funnier and more interesting it is too." Caroline Siede from The A.V. Club in a positive review wrote, "This season two premiere delivers a stronger, better version of The Umbrella Academy – one that finally starts to pay off the promise of the series." Laura Prudom of IGN praised the series for its action sequences, soundtrack, and the themes about family, and considered it an improvement on the previous season. Tom Long from The Detroit News gave a positive response for its representation of LGBT and race issues. Richard Lawson from The Vanity Fair praised the visual effects, and considered the season to be sleeker and more vivid than the first season. Sabrina Barr from The Independent commented: "Employing dry Wes Anderson-style humour and end-of-the-world exploits worthy of Heroes, the second season of The Umbrella Academy is just as – if not more – wacky than the first." Lacy Baugher of Paste praised the series for not being like any other superhero movie or series, giving a positive response about its family themes, and the siblings' struggles and addictions.

Season 3

For the third season, Rotten Tomatoes reported an 89% approval rating with an average rating of 7.7/10, based on 19 reviews. The website's critics consensus reads, "The Umbrella Academy unfurls a bit beyond a manageable scope in this overstuffed season, but there remains all the gonzo creativity and resonant character relationships that fans enroll for." Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 71 out of 100 based on 5 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".

destructions 74 For the effects of Number Five jumping through time and space Burrell wanted to make the effects look organic and liquidy representing how much time and the world bends around him when he jumps and how quick it should be For these effects he used more than 30 frames in the first episodes however with the progress of the series this reduced to only 10 frames 75 To that footage the team iterated on several kinds of spatial jump effects all the way from heavy distortion to subtler images The visual effects team started with some R amp D tests At the end the final effect called the jelly vision was used to make the series with Burrell expressing as if you re pushing your hand through a jelly membrane just for a few seconds and then it pops It s really really subtle but you get a little bit of texture you get a little bit of striations almost like the universe is bending as he does his spatial jumps 76 In an interview with Burrell he confirmed that to develop the sequences where time is frozen they took several background shots on location before returning to their stage to shoot the dialogue between Five and The Handler in front of a green screen They called this effect Three Strip in honor of the Technicolor process used in the 1930s 77 The second season used 400 shots from the Folks VFX Montreal team under the guidance of VFX supervisor Laurent Spillemaecker to create time portal effects seen throughout the season particularly Five s special ability Meanwhile Spillemaecker s crew recreated events surrounding JFK s fateful Dallas visit while including The Umbrella Academy s superpower interactions Pictures and references from the 60s were provided to create and later to be used as digital matte paintings and CG environments to transform Canada into the show s setting 1960s Dallas 78 79 The opening scene of the second season where the siblings fight the Soviets on a Dallas street was the most complicated to do being nearly completely CGI It was realised on a 360 degree bluescreen backlot set which was 15 feet tall and 200 feet by 60 feet The only real things that weren t made of CGI were the tank soldiers cast and the rubble on the ground The set was LiDAR scanned so that the director Sylvian White could walk around using a VR edition of the iPad They used a Phantom running at 700 frames per second on a camera stick The scene was also divided in seven parts beginning with Number Five s arrival at 1963 and concluding before Diego s first lines For safety reasons the crew couldn t fire the AK 47s at Diego so they were forced to do multiple passes 80 71 Music Edit The show s score albums were released for season 1 amp 2 Jeff Russo was hired to compose the show s score 81 During an interview he revealed that the crew needed to use a subtle hand with the score and that he wanted the score to be thematic by not trying to push too much on the weird and too much on the horrific aspect of the show and the story 82

reviews are positive for the first season with an average rating of 7 2 10 Critics consensus on the website reads The Umbrella Academy unfurls an imaginative yarn with furtive emotion and an

100 based on 22 critics indicating generally favorable reviews 100 Merrill Barr from Forbes praised the series and wrote If you re looking for a pulpy show with lots of action melodramatic plotting and eccentric characters then The Umbrella Academy is your ticket 105 Lorraine Ali from Los Angeles Times in a positive review wrote The Umbrella Academy stands out among the countless other superhero series splashed across billboards and your viewing queues 106 Catherine Gee from the Daily Telegraph gave the series a positive response and commented If it does return for a second run it would be nice to see some more genuinely fresh ideas without the over reliance on tried tested and tired tropes from years past 107 Adam Graham from The Detroit News commented the series is a worthy enrollment praising the series for its themes about a dysfunctional family and the characters 108 Kambole Campbell from Little White Lies considered the series as something to enjoy with a plenty of surprises

Some critics pointed out similarities between The Umbrella Academy DC Universe s Doom Patrol and Marvel Comics s X Men series both positively and negatively 110 111 112 113 Some Jewish writers have criticized The Umbrella Academy for its portrayal of the Handler In particular her use of a Yiddish idiom and her membership in a secret society that discreetly causes catastrophic events were together perceived as an antisemitic stereotype of Jewish people secretly and malevolently controlling world events 114 Amanda Bowman Vice President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews wrote that The use of a Yiddish saying by the evil boss of an organisation which controls the world s timeline is clearly an anti Semitic trope 115 The Handler was again shown speaking Yiddish in the second

if not more wacky than the first 122 Lacy Baugher of Paste praised the series for not being like any other superhero movie or series giving a positive response about its family themes and the siblings struggles and addictions 123 Season 3 Edit For the third season Rotten Tomatoes reported an 89 approval rating with an average rating of 7 7 10 based on 19 reviews The website s critics consensus
