The Umbrella Academy hype train charges forward. Although the show’s season 2 renewal was just announced a few months ago, the cast and crew is excited to show fans work is already underway. On Thursday, Gerard Way and Gabriel , the writing half of the Umbrella Academy comic, posted photos from the table read while other cast members shared candids.

Before the My Chemical Romance lead turned comic creator took his Umbrella Academy season 2 tease to Insta, cast members Ellen Page (Vanya Hargreeves) and David Castañeda (Diego Hargreeves) met up for a selfie.

Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison Hargreeves) highlighted an entire wall of fan-art that the crew keeps on hand. “Just so you know,” she says in a video, ” they’re with us everyday. You guys are incredible.”
Even Fábio Moon, occassional illustrator of the series, couldn’t resist tackling some art. On Twitter Thursday he posted a sketch he made during table reads.


It looks like everyone taking part in Umbrella Academy season 2 is psyched and so are fans. In its first four weeks on Netflix, Gerard Way and Gabrial Bá’s adaptation drew in almost 45 million viewers. Maybe that’s why producers are hustling to get this second season into viewers’ screens. In the meantime, get ready for the recently announced card game and deluxe reprintings.
