Rumors were swirling over the weekend, and now Netflix has made it official. The live-action adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá's The Umbrella Academy will be returning for a sophomore season.

Netflix is moving away from Marvel, striking new development deals with Mark Millar, Dark Horse Comics, IDW, and more indie comic creators.  So far, the move appears to be paying off as it seems that whatever metrics Netflix uses to determine whether a show is successful or not have deemed that a second season of The Umbrella Academy is warranted.

The Netflix comic book adaptation surprised many critics and fans, going on to secure a 76% Rotten Tomatoes score and a 62 Metacritic rating.  

Steve Blackman will return as showrunner along with the original cast consisting of Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Justin Min, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher,

Way and Bá have previously confirmed that they've given Blackman and outline for how the ongoing comic series eventually concludes.

Filming for season 2 will begin this summer.
