Season 2: Plot

The show tells the story of 7 randomly born infants who are adopted by billionaire industrialist Reginald Hargreeves. He created The Umbrella Academy and trained his children to save the world. As time progresses, the children split up and go their separate ways. However, they reunite once again when Hargreeves passes away. This is where it is revealed that their father died under mysterious and suspicious circumstances.

According to the comic book, Reginald could be an alien. This is something that can be explored a bit in season 2. At the start of the season, Hargreeves opens up a bottle and lets out flashy looking this into the open.

Following this, 43 infants are born inexplicably to women with zero signs of pregnancy. This could mean that Reginald created the children to give the Earth a few protectors. As he couldn’t stop his world from destruction, this could be an atonement. This could explain Hargreeves’ interest in adopting as many kids as he possibly could.

We will meet Hargreeves once again in season 2. However, this time it’ll be a completely new time zone and location. The children will reunite with their father and attempt to understand the mess they’re in. They will have to figure out a way fast to stop Vanya once and for all. The second season will explore volume 2 of the comics titled Dallas. As per Dallas, the Temps Commission has tasked No 5 with the assassination of JFK. The Temps Commission are the people who ensure that the timeline isn’t tampered with. However, No.5 rises in rebellion and flushes the entire plan down the toilet.

How Did Season 1 End?

As the gang tried to prevent the apocalypse in season 1, they managed to anger Vanya during the process. As a result, Vanya destroyed the moon and the Earth using her hidden powers. Though their plan failed, number 5 uses his well-oiled brain and zips the gang back in time to safety.

Vanya caused the apocalypse, and she will remain a threat until she lives. If the gang wants to impend the remaining apocalypse, they’ll have to manipulate the past.
