The Umbrella Academy Official Trailer: When It Rains, It Pours

at .

Netflix may not be renewing a lot of their traditional superheroes, but that doesn't mean the genre is dead on the site.

Not by a longshot!

We've already gotten a glimpse of The Umbrella Academy by way of the official teaser, but that was nothing but child's play. Things are only going up with this official look at the series from Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá,


Not being familiar with Way's comic series (but certainly with his music from My Chemical Romance), even The Umbrella Academy teaser didn't have me completely convinced I was all in for the series.

That's even knowing one of my all-time favorite people, Robert Sheehan, would be shining bright alongside Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Aidan Gallagher, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, and Kate Walsh.

Whew. Breathe. What. A. Cast.

But now? This trailer makes The Umbrella Academy a top priority for 2019.


Here's the official synopsis for The Umbrella Academy, in case you missed it: 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 a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death.

But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.


If you watched the initial teaser, you recall the use of Tiffany's "I Think I'm Alone Now," from 1989. 

The music accompanying the official trailer is equally as enthusiastic and has an even more personal touch.

It's a cover of "Hazy Shade of Winter" (one of my all-time favorite songs, thankyouverymuch) from Way himself. 

Get ready to rock because this one is going to knock your socks off! 

The Umbrella Academy premieres February 15 on Netflix!!

Netflix Quotes

Jonathan: I notice a little bit of dryness on your cheek.
Tom: That’s my Lupus.
Jonathan: Okay, let’s talk about that a little. One thing I know about Lupus is that it’s all about SPF. Like, we have to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays because sun actually can cause inflammation and flare ups for people with Lupus.
Tom: Right...
[Cut to Jonathan’s confessional]
Jonathan: How you take care of yourself is how the world sees you, and he’s not taking care of himself.

Bobby: We are about to pull in. What’s our mission today with Tom?
Jonathan: We’re gonna dust off these Christmas ghosts’ pasts of these relationships, we’re gonna sort out his closet, we’re gonna get him cuter, we’re gonna get him looking good, we’re gonna get the house fixed up. We’re ready! We cannot wait. Am I right?
All: Yes!
