If there is one genre of entertainment that is taking over the industry right now, it's everything and anything superhero related. Whether it's Marvel or DC, movie or TV show, fans just can't get enough of the fantasy world that involves iconic superheroes saving the world from evil.
Thankfully for fans who have run out of new superhero content to binge, there is a new Netflix series that is set to arrive on the platform next year. Judging by the amount of praise it's received after releasing a short trailer, it's clear this one is definitely a series you won't want to miss out on.
The Netflix series in question is called The Umbrella Academy and it's based on a comic book series by Gerard Way that consists of three issues running from 2007 until this year after a decade-long hiatus.
The series that will first be released by Netflix is expected to follow the storyline of the first series released back in 2007. It follows the lives of seven children with supernatural powers who are adopted by a billionaire. From there, they are raised by their adoptive father to protect the world from evil and known as the Umbrella Academy.
Unfortunately, the children eventually become estranged and move on from their lives but after their adoptive father suddenly passes, the children come back together. Judging from the trailer, things are set to get pretty intense from there:
When it comes to a dysfunctional group of superheroes we can't help but think about iconic titles such as Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Civil War. While the series will definitely have big shoes to fill, fans are already deeming the show a future hit by the trailer alone:
