The Umbrella Academy Season 2 is coming – we’re still not that certain when it’ll turn up on Netflix – and I’m thinking that Luther might end up dying in the upcoming season.
People reading this article who are fans of The Umbrella Academy might be thinking one of two things right now: ‘Why would you want to kill Luther!’ or ‘Yes, get rid of him. good riddance I say!’
Luther has been one of the most divisive characters in the first season of The Umbrella Academy, which is very interesting indeed.
However, there’s a lot of hate for the character out there and it comes down to the fact that many people believe he’s directly to blame for the Apocalypse.

He’s the one who wanted to lock Vanya Hargreeves up, and that was one of the main reasons why she ended up blowing up the moon.
However, Netflix might not be convinced to kill off Luther just because some fans don’t like the guy.
Yet, they might end up killing him off because it just makes sense to have Number 1 be the first member of The Umbrella Academy to die in the upcoming season.
So far, he’s been a poor excuse of a leader. He’s wrapped up in his own problems and fails to see the bigger picture.
However, the events of Season 1’s finale might just jolt him into becoming the leader he was supposed to be to begin with.
How does one become a genuine leader? Well, one way he could do that is by sacrificing himself for the good of others, and I think that’s what going to happen in Season 2.

There are also other things at play here. The fact that Vanya destroys the Moon I believe to be very important.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that she destroys the place that was Luther’s home for so many years.
I’m pretty sure that Luther in Season 2 will end up going back to the Moon to try and prevent the same thing from happening again.
Whilst up there, I reckon there’ll be some sort of altercation with Vanya, and Luther might opt to sacrifice himself to save his Umbrella Academy siblings, including Vanya.
Could Luther sacrifice himself in the Umbrella Academy Season 2 to save Vanya?
This, I believe, would be an incredibly powerful moment, and could end up being the catalyst for either the team to come together, or divide them even further.
So far, the show seems to be setting Vanya – a.k.a. The White Violin – as the main villain, yet I don’t think she will be.
I think the show will want to do more than having her be your standard villain, and I do believe that Luther’s actions and possible death in Season 2 will set other things into motion that will hopefully prevent the Moon from being blown up.
There’s still no word yet on when The Umbrella Academy Season 2 will be released on Netflix, but I don’t think we’re going to be waiting for that much longer.
I’ve done a bit of sleuthing, and have figured out a time frame when Netflix will be most likely to release season 2 of The Umbrella Academy.
Netflix recently officially confirmed that The Umbrella Academy season 2 – which was developed by Steve Blackman and Jeremy Slater and based on the comic book series of the same name created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá – is now in development.

They did this via Netflix’s UK and Ireland Instagram account.
Netflix posted an image of some of the members of The Umbrella Academy’s cast, and they all look pretty excited to be working on season 2.
They posted the image with the caption: “Just some good eggs taking a family selfie. Umbrella Academy s2 is coming soon.”
So, we can assume that The Umbrella Academy season 2 will be released very soon, but how soon exactly.
We can have a look at how long the first season took to shoot and how long post-production was.

So, the first season took about a year in total, from the very beginning of production to the moment it was released on the streaming service’s platform.
We know that principal photography of The Umbrella Academy season 2 began in June 2019, so it might be a safe bet to assume that the show will turn up on Netflix in June 2020.
However, the Instagram post suggests otherwise. The caption suggests that it’ll be made available sooner than that.
I believe that The Umbrella Academy season 2 will be made available on Netflix sometime around March or April.
