The Umbrella Academy Synopsis

So first off this isn’t really a show you can summarise so easily – but the short of it… The Umbrella Academy is the story of a super-dysfunctional family of superheroes who have eight days to get it together and save the world.

How they got to this point?

All the kids were born on the same day around the world, however, the mothers of these babies weren’t actually pregnant at all until the very day of the birth.

A billionaire then decides to go and buy 7 of these babies from these mums to build a family of superheroes – as you do.

The kids all have different superpowers, there’s also time travel, a monkey butler and the mum of the family is a robot.

I think that covers it all off – and the rest we will leave to you. Now sit back, hold on to your butts and enjoy The Umbrella Academy.

The best part is there are 2 seasons so it definitely helps with the binge factory.

Each season has 10 episodes with each episode approximately 50mins in length.
