Umbrella Academy Season 2 Storyline
Fans were left hanging at the end of Umbrella Academy season 1. All the main characters ended up in the past as teenagers. However, the adopted siblings went back to different time zones of the 1960s.
Fans can take a sigh of relief because Hargreeves’ siblings are pretty much alive, and will be returning in one piece in season 2. They survived by escaping from the apocalypse. Number Five saved the siblings by transporting them into the past in early 1960s Dallas, Texas. In the new season, number Five will try to reunite all the Hargreeves siblings. It seems like he will play a huge role in season 2.
Moreover, he will have to carry out a huge task, which is convincing his siblings to stop the forthcoming apocalypse. Also, he will have to bring them together to return to their time. Season 2 is not going to be an easy ride for the Hargreeves siblings. Fans can expect different themes and settings in season 2.
