The Umbrella Academy premieres on Netflix in February

Super family tries to save the world and stay together

The Umbrella Academy, an adaptation of Gabriel Ba and Gerard Way’s award-winning comic book series that just returned in October, will premiere on Netflix on Feb. 15, 2019.

The first season tells the story of six children, five of whom have super powers, and their adoptive father. Fans of the book will recognize this show is set in a different time — beginning in 1989 and now present day, as opposed to 1977 — but the setup remains the same: Spontaneous, miraculous pregnancies deliver these six to save the world and learn the truth of their origins. That’s if they can stay together despite their headstrong personalities and unique powers threatening to tear the team apart.

The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page as Vanya (The White Violin); Tom Hopper as Luther (Spaceboy); David Castaneda as Diego (The Kraken); Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison (The Rumor); Robert Sheehan as Klaus (The Seance) and Aidan Gallagher as Number Five (The Boy). Colm Feore stars as Sir Reginald Hargreeves (The Monocle).

Way and Ba are executive producers. The first season has 10 one-hour episodes.
