The Umbrella Academy: Season 2 TV review - Aussieboyreviews
IS THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY: SEASON 2 A REFRESH OF LAUGHS, QUIRKS AND ADVENTUROUS ENTERTAINMENT?
Striking better than the first season, The Umbrella Academy’s second season is splendidly fun, exciting and quirky. The actors are great and the shorter episodes are more engaging.
When the six siblings are scattered and build themselves new lives after they are blasted back in time to the 1960s, they are reunited with each other and must work together to prevent doomsday.

Aussie boy's thoughts
The Umbrella Academy’s entertaining third season is packed with so much quirk, humour and fun that makes it delightful to watch. The episodes are at least 10 minutes short, the beginnings of the episodes pick right back up on the previous episode’s cliffhanging ending, and since this season’s plot revolves around the characters being blasted back in time to the 1960s, the new ideas are just splendid fun. The actors in this series are perfect and it’s a really fascinating depiction of the 60s. Overall, it’s easy to say that Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy improves on the first season’s bland issues and fans will love returning to a true comic-adapted fiction series; lots of leisure, despite some bland moments.
