Plot Synopsis

Based on the comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Ba, THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY is a one-hour, live-action series that follows the estranged members of The Umbrella Academy, a dysfunctional family of superheroes -- The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Seance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin -- as they reunite to work together to solve their eccentric father's mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities. Even as they uncover shocking family secrets, these estranged Hargreeves siblings must put aside their differences to stop a looming threat to humanity. The series opens with the estranged Hargreeves siblings coming together to mark their father's death, years after they rose to fame as young crime-fighting superheroes. After sharing the story of his time travel with Vanya, Five hunts for the owner of a fake eye. But two mysterious assassins are hot on his trail. Worried their mother is hiding something, Luther and Allison call a family meeting. Cha-Cha and Hazel catch a big break in their hunt for Five. On Friday, February 15, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the 10-episode first season of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY.
