If shows about dysfunctional families are your thing, then there's really no shortage of things for you to watch on Netflix. One show in particular that you may have heard of is The Umbrella Academy, which is about a group of estranged siblings who have unique superpowers. The family is all brought back together by their father's death, which leads them to uncover all kinds of dark family secrets. If you've finished the first season, we've got good news - a second season of The Umbrella Academy is coming to Netflix Canada.
Just this morning, the original Netflix Instagram account posted an announcement for a second season of The Umbrella Academy. The new season will consist of ten episodes and will start production this summer. Many members of the original cast are sticking on board, including Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, and Justin Min, among others.
The first season of the show has received mostly good reviews and is sitting at a 76% critic approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. We don't yet have a trailer or a release date for this new season, but based on the announcement alone it looks like things are going to stay just as intense as they were in the first.

The Umbrella Academy is based on a comic book series of the same name by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics - we highly suggest you check it out while waiting for the new season.
