The Umbrella Academy premiere date set for February on Netflix
The Netflix series Umbrella Academy has released a batch of new character posters and first look photos from the upcoming comic book adaptation, and revealed the series will make its debut on February 15, 2019 on the streaming service. Check out the new photos below!
The posters introduce the family members, so, for those unaware: Number 1 is Luther Hargreeves, played by Tom Hopper; number 2 is Diego Hargreeves aka The Kraken played by David Castañeda; number 3 is Allison Hargreeves aka The Rumor, played by Emmy Raver-Lampman; number 4 is Klaus Hargreeves aka The Séance, played by Robert Sheehan; number 5 is known simply as Number Five, played by Aidan Gallagher; and finally number 7 is Vanya Hargreeves aka The White Violin, played by Ellen Page.
On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.
