For the moment, yes, they did not want to advance the premiere date. And it is that in current times it is more complicated to promise launch dates or windows since the health situation is unpredictable anywhere in the world. During 2020 alone, multiple films have been delayed on more than one occasion, not forgetting that many shootings temporarily stopped their activity. Everything indicates, then, that the 2021 film calendar will be saturated.
The Umbrella Academy is one of many series that Netflix premiered throughout 2020, an unusual year in which millions of people were – or are – confined to their homes. This obviously increased the number of viewers who were able to enjoy the second season. According to data shared by the Nielsen firm, The Umbrella Academy is the most-watched series during its first week of release with 3 billion minutes played between August 3 and 9.
Lost In An Alternate Reality
The second season of The Umbrella Academy ended with a big surprise. Vanya, Allison, Diego, Klaus, Luther, and Five thought that the nightmare in the past had ended, however, their time travel was wrong again and they ended up in the presence of an alternate reality; his place was “replaced” by the Sparrow Academy, whose members are alternate versions of the main heroes. Consequently, the outlook for the third season promises to be more than interesting, as the gang will have to find a way to return to their world.
