The Birth Of The Academy
Inspired by the visionary works of My Chemical Romance singer-turned-comic-writer Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy is a creative television superhero series like no other.
Based on the seminal Dark Horse comic book series of the same name, the series begins one fateful day in 1989 with 43 completely ordinary women giving birth, unexpectedly and without warning. And yet, none of them were pregnant - no bump or indication of any kind. Of these 43 new-borns, 7 were adopted by billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a man with grand plans and the vast fortune to make them a reality. These 7 extraordinary children would become the superpowered unit known worldwide as the Umbrella Academy...
Meet an eccentric cast of siblings as they come together once more to stave off an impending apocalypse, after disbanding years prior from their super-heroic exploits.
Featuring the witty Number Five (an unfortunate name granted by his adoptive father), this time-travelling, teleporting youngster invites a series of escalating events that draw his unwitting family of misfits once again into a life of danger and fantastical events.
And Number Five isn’t the only member of this dysfunctional group. Immerse yourself in the world of...
Luther: a large ape-man recently returned from a mission to the moon. Dubbed with the title ‘Space Boy’, this loyal son strives to live up to the grand legacy of his adoptive father.
Allison: a famed actress, gifted with the unique ability to make anyone do anything she wants with the mere whisper of a rumour.
Klaus: a fun-loving, drug-addicted outcast with a cursed power that allows him to commune with the dead.
Diego: a knife-throwing vigilante, with a penchant for trouble and absolute accuracy.
And last but not least... Vanya: the only unremarkable member of this family of powered individuals - or so it would seem.
As if this show couldn’t get any crazier, let's not forget the talking chimpanzee: Pogo. A loyal butler and companion to the seven children – and undeniably one of the most sympathetic and engaging characters of the lot.
