Netflix has just released the latest trailer for their next original series, The Umbrella Academy, which teases an intriguing story, action-packed fights, comedy and a very fitting cast on the whole.
Based on the graphic novel, ‘The Umbrella Academy‘, forty-three infants are inexplicably born at random and seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.
“In the children’s 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,” reads the official synopsis.

This new series literally looks like the X-Men and The Kingsman franchises merging into one, so it may be a decent watch after all. I like the humor placed throughout the trailer which comes across as more of dark comedy that’s all laced throughout a global epidemic coming the Academy’s way.
The Umbrella Academy will release on on Netflix February 15, 2019.
