WATCH: Umbrella Academy - Why Haven't You Watched It Yet?

Words by: Emily Smith

This show may not have made the list of popular Netflix series to binge on, but if it were up to us, it would be right at the top.

Featuring our favourite Ellen Page, The Umbrella Academy is an eight-part series following the lives of a family of grown-up children. These individuals are not related by blood – instead they were all born at the exact same time, on the exact same day, all around the world, to women who never appeared to be pregnant.

Their “father” adopted six of them, each possessing their own extraordinary powers. Reunited by his death, they each return home to be confronted by an endless web of dark family secrets, and a mission to prevent the looming end of humanity.

Yes, you will be addicted. But not to worry! It’s just been confirmed, a second season is on the way! So hurry up. You’re welcome.
