On the TV front, Netflix is dropping The Umbrella Academy season 2 on July 31st. Plot details about show’s sophomore run are very limited, but it’s likely that it will draw inspiration from The Umbrella Academy comic book series’ second volume, Dallas, which revolves around Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) and his association with John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
