The Making of The Umbrella Academy
Dark Horse, Netflix, and Universal Content Productions present The Making of The Umbrella Academy. Based on the award-winning comics series by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, Doom Patrol) and Gabriel Bá (Two Brothers, Neil Gaiman’s How to Talk to Girls at Parties), The Umbrella Academy on Netflix reached 45 million households in the first four weeks after its release with a second season set for a 2020 release.
