It appears as though Gerard Way has been busy with Season 2 of his Netflix comic book adaptation, The Umbrella Academy.
Earlier this week, teasers began implying that a new trailer for season two was coming, with a ’60s-styled psychedelic graphic suggesting another doomsday accompanied by the caption “Feelin groovy. See u tmrw” and another photo of Way in the studio laying down some vocals.
The brand new trailer dropped Wednesday (July 8) morning, with the family of characters appearing to have been transported back to 1963-era Dallas, apparently sent there to thwart the assassination of President Kennedy, that is if they can get out of each other’s way. You can watch the trailer below, which finds each member of the family adapting in their own ways to the ’60s until Five is able to reunite them on their mission.
There is a new track titled “Here Comes the End” that plays throughout a majority of the trailer, with the My Chemical Romance frontman’s fingerprints all over it. Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba were behind the creation of the series. Have a look and listen to the trailer below.
The second season of The Umbrella Academy returns July 31 on Netflix.
