If you love superheroes, there is a good chance that you might have heard of the comic book series Umbrella Academy. While the series itself is pretty good, what brought attention to it was the fact that the series was co-written by Gerard Way who before that was known for being the lead singer of rock band My Chemical Romance.
The comic book series has since been adapted for a live-action series on Netflix, and the trailer for the show has since been released. According to the show’s description, “A dysfunctional family of superheroes comes together to solve the mystery of their father’s death, the threat of the apocalypse and more.”
It is unclear as to how much the series will stay faithful to its comic book counterpart, but judging from the trailer it already looks pretty good. There are humorous elements to it, but for the most part it also exudes a bit of a dark feel, kind of reminds us of DC’s Titans series which is also available via Netflix.
The first season of the series will be available on the 15th of February, 2019 via Netflix, so if you haven’t signed up for a subscription already, now might be a good time to do so.
