Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Season 2 is coming up in less than a month. Instead of a proper preview, however, The Umbrella Academy’s social media reports continue to drop clues about Season 2 by way of mysterious stills and images. Recently, a poster featuring all the Hargreeves sisters premiered, each sporting some shades. Reflected in each pair is a different picture about the next season, which fans are already assessing for concealed meanings.
Unlike the posters released so far that one gets the wolf organized by height, and in order. Being Number One, in addition to the tallest, Luther is in the top. The next row is the fullest with Allison, Diego, Klaus and Ben. Eventually, Vanya and Number Five share the row because of two of the numbers and the two of this group. They’re also sporting their Season 2 costumes featured in their posters.
Luther’s sunglasses reveal a newspaper with the headline, “War Declared.” Underneath, an individual could make out the words”Kennedy” into 1 lens along with”Red Attack on…” at the other. Ever since Season 2 will take place in the 1960s, this is likely referencing the Vietnam War. Back in Season 1, Klaus inadvertently travelled back to 1968 where he met and fell in love with a soldier called Dave. Perhaps Dave could make another appearance until his death since season 2 takes place before then. Some fans speculate that this might be another war entirely, possibly one with the Soviet Union linked in the ’60s into the siblings’ appearance. This could also be the next apocalypse cited from the official synopsis.
Next, the sunglasses of Diego include a girl in what appears to be some sort of nightclub. Many believe the girl is the personality, Lila of newcomer Ritu Arya. If this is the case, then Lila could be a brand new ally or enemy that is possible for Diego. Based on her character description, it might go either way on. Fans are speculating that she could be a love interest for Diego.
In Allison’s sunglasses, there’s a crowd of (mostly) people of colour holding signs. One of them reads”Freedom Now.” As a girl of colour herself, it appears like Allison can get involved with the Civil Rights Movement. This would compliment one of the Season 2 stills, where somebody using Allison is holding a pamphlet that asks, “Have you experienced discrimination by your employer?” While he has yet to look in almost any poster or picture, this may be where the Raymond of Yusuf Gatewood comes into play. Since he is described as a”born leader,” perhaps he will be released as a local Civil Rights activist.
Klaus’s shades show an image of many hands being raised with some greenery in the background. 1 set of arms is sporting sleeves that look quite similar to those in Klaus’s brand new costume. Many believe that this might be some type of concert. Others have speculated that, based on his brand new look that was eccentric, Klaus has begun a cult or might have united. Furthermore, Klaus is the only sibling.
Always at Klaus’s side, a familiar sight: Ben’s sunglasses reflect an Umbrella Academy family portrait. In particular, the glasses’ frame highlights Ben, Klaus and Allison with their father at the background. It appears to function as the last portrait before Ben’s departure. Because Ben is dead, it appears probable that Season 2 will elaborate on his backstory.
In Vanya’s glasses are a girl and a child hanging up laundry on a clothesline. This seems to be Sissy, Marin Ireland’s character, and her child. They were seen in a Season two still behind the wheel. She had been the one to locate Number Seven when she took her in and appeared at the ’60s. Vanya might have found a new family to love and love her. After all, they seem happy in that picture. This might not go over well when the rest of her siblings show up.
Ultimately, construction is reflected by Number Five’s glasses with what could be either mountains or a blue sky with clouds in the background. Some think it may be the Texas School Book Depository, the building where Lee Harvey Oswald shot President Kennedy.
But while the building in Five’s eyeglasses does have some similar features, it does not appear to be the same building. Since Five will be landing in 1963, it might still be linked to the assassination. As in his poster, the face of Five is splattered with blood so he will probably be involved with some killings.
Based on the Dark Horse Comics series created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin Min. Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy is currently available on Netflix and Season 2 will be released on July 31.
