There’s been an awful lot of chat recently about Netflix’s new series, The Umbrella Academy, and fans of the show are desperate to know when the streaming service will announce Season 2’s release date.
Fans want to find out more about the upcoming season of The Umbrella Academy, and so far there’s been very little information about season 2, and they haven’t even revealed a release date for when it’ll land on the streaming platform.
That said, this is pretty much standard for Netflix and all of its TV shows. They don’t tend to let people know when the series will be released until the very last minute.
They really do like to keep people on their toes, and that’s very much the case with The Umbrella Academy season 2, which won’t get a release date until at least a week before it airs.

However, we can do a bit of sleuthing, and we’ve 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.”
Season 2 is coming to Netflix 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.

It could even end up on the streaming service in February, which is when they released the first season.
Netflix will want to ensure they have something big coming out close to the beginning of 2020, and it doesn’t come much bigger than The Umbrella Academy season 2.
However, these things take time, and it would be good for Netflix to ensure that the second season is as good as it possibly can be, so they might take a bit longer to get things just right.
