What is the Umbrella Academy season 2 plot?
In the ending of season one, we saw that Number Five used the time traveling to save his siblings from being destroyed while the worlds and everyone living on it gets bombarded. So possibly we will be seeing all of them in a different place and because Vanya caused the moon to explode, they will have to figure out what is next for them in-store.
Netflix will not be completed following the patterns of the comic book. We saw that a huge part of Number Five’s story has already been covered and comic kids had managed to save the world but in the show, it didn’t happen.
Blackman wanted the audience to feel that they want to come back and watch what happens next. He gave a perfect ending to season one because we for sure can’t wait to see the second season and what happens next.
No exact plot details have been revealed officially yet. It’s going to be difficult to make them unveil the same. Even though the title for the premiere episode of season 2 suggests something from the past, we are not sure if the show will revisit the plot details from the first installment or if our heroes would have to start right from the scratch.
