What is The Umbrella Academy plot?
Here is a plot summary for "The Umbrella Academy" TV series.
The Umbrella Academy is set in a universe where 43 women around the world give birth simultaneously on October 1, 1989, despite none of them showing any sign of pregnancy until labor began. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) and turned into a superhero team that he calls "The Umbrella Academy." Hargreeves gives the children numbers rather than names, but they eventually are named by their robot-mother, Grace, as Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Five, Ben, and Vanya (Elliot Page). While putting six of his children to work fighting crime, Reginald keeps Vanya apart from her siblings' activities, as she supposedly demonstrates no powers of her own.
The first season is set in the present day, where Luther is part ape and has lived on the moon for four years, Allison is a famous actress, Vanya is a violinist, Klaus has a drug addiction, Ben, now deceased, is a ghost able to converse only with Klaus, and Diego has become a vigilante with a penchant for trouble. The estranged siblings learn that Reginald has died and gather for his funeral. Five returns from the future, chased by time-travelling operatives, and reveals that a global apocalypse is imminent. Meanwhile, the reunited siblings try to uncover the secret of their dysfunctional family while beginning to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
The second season takes place immediately after the first season. Following their failure to stop the apocalypse, the Umbrella Academy is forced to go back in time, to save the world. Unfortunately the time travel goes awry as the siblings end up different years in 1960s Dallas. Five ends up on November 25, 1963, in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, but manages to escape with the help of Hazel (Cameron Britton). Five discovers that another apocalypse is coming and that he only has ten days to prevent it. While being hunted by a trio of Swedish assassins, Five must find and reunite his siblings who have made new lives following their arrival, in order to stop this new apocalypse.
