This is another big weekend for Netflix. Dropping this Friday is the second season of the smash hit Umbrella Academy. Today, Netflix opened the door to fans and released the Season 2 opening scene to the first episode. Check it out below!
Season 2 Opening Scene: Bad Ass!
At the end of season 1, we knew things took a different direction, but no one could have predicted this! It appears this show will take on a Quantum Leap style format. The kids will most likely jump from one time scenario to the next, looking for the one where they can live happily ever after.
The opening scene delivers on so many fronts. The action looks great, the cast is all back, and even Hazel looks to play a major role in what’s to come. Of all the time changes they could have used, they chose to go with the Soviets invading the US. Of course the time changes could have been small changes, but nope. The bigger the better!
Season 2 Opening Scene: All Juiced and Lettin’ Loose
Perhaps the best part of the scene happens when we see the kids jump into the fight. It reminds me a lot of X-Men: Days of Future Past. We know the X-men as young kids learning their powers, but when we jump to the future they mastered their skills.
Once the kids enter the fight in this scene, we finally get to see their powers at their fullest. They all look amazing, but Vanya’s powers look mind-boggling powerful! Her eyes look scary powerful and she now possesses full controls her powers. Of course the others show amazing control of their powers as well and look formidable to say the least. It’s nice to see confirmation that Allison will get her voice back.
Season 2 Opening Scene: How Many Realities Are There?
As we transition from season 1 to season 2 one big question emerges. At the end of season 1, Number 5 attempts to time jump all seven of them to an alternate time line before the moon rock destroys the Earth. When Number Five appears in this clip, only he emerges from the time stream. Where are his siblings?
Could it be possible that each sibling (or pair of siblings) landed in different time streams. The quest for this season may not only be to right the time stream, but to reconnect with the other Hargreeves children?
We shall find out soon enough as Umbrella Academy Season 2 drops this Friday.
