I really enjoyed the first season of Umbrella Academy, but after a disappointing second season for Altered Carbon I was worried about this follow up. Turns out I didn’t need to be because Umbrella Academy Season 2 was great, a perfect follow up that develops its core cast, gives them a new setting and still manages to keep the sense of fun alongside the drama.

Umbrella Academy is at its heart a superhero show about a dysfunctional group of heroes getting together to stop a threat, but it doesn’t take itself seriously, its cast is a mishmash of troubled souls quite unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and it’s just generally bonkers. At only 10 episodes it doesn’t overstay its welcome either! Let’s take deeper look, anyway…
