The Umbrella Academy has both a very conclusive ending and no ending at all. The finale features a pretty finite conclusion for literally all of Earth, R.I.P. us, but also a very open ending for the surviving Hargreeves children. So as we like to do, let’s break down the ending of The Umbrella Academy and see what we can explain.
It’s very good news because the series has officially been confirmed for season two. Way and Bá have written three volumes of The Umbrella Academy Apocalypse Suite, Dallas, and Hotel Oblivion. Which means the series will probably get a third season somewhere down the line, but we’re a little way off that at the moment.

We expect all of the Hargreaves kids to feature, which means returns for Vanya (Ellen Page), Luther (Tom Hopper), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Diego (David Castañeda) Number Five (Aidan Gallagher), and Ben (Ethan Hwang), who played an increasingly more central role towards the end of the first season. There’s every chance that their adoptive father Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) will return in the form of flashbacks, as he did throughout the first series (that could also be the case with their robot mum Grace Hargreaves, played by Jordan Claire Robbins), as well as through Klaus’s ability to conjure the dead.
Production is likely to begin in the next few months now that season two is officially happening. So we would expect the brand new episodes to hit screens in early 2020.
