To say all we’ve been doing is watching Netflix shows would be the understatement of the year. With not much else to do other than binge-watch anything on the streaming service, we have started to run out of things to watch. Some of our favorites have finally come back for a second season, including the recent release of Dead To Me. And now, it’s just been announced that Umbrella Academy is coming back to Netflix on July 31st!
The comic book thriller is heading to the streaming service for a second installment in July, with the first season proving to be a huge hit for the platform. The announcement has seriously cheered us up, not only because it’s great news that another season is heading to us very soon, but the way in which it was announced. The video shows the cast filming themselves to Tiffany’s ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’. Cast members would usually be promoting the show with interviews and red carpet appearances, but with the world on lockdown, this was the next best thing. And boy do we love it!
