“Umbrella Academy” Season 2: The cast was just as surprised by the ending as you!
The surprise was great at the end of the second season of the Netflix series “Umbrella Academy” – both for the audience and for the cast, who had been left in the dark for a long time about the end of the season.
The heroes in “The Umbrella Academy” have just come back from their exhausting journey through time and want to toast their success, because they have to find out that the present has changed – and that the heroes no longer exist:
The group has not followed Emmett Brown’s advice in the past not to change anything, which is why the famous butterfly effect led to a superhero formation called the Sparrow Academy taking the place of the Umbrellas (the Sparrow Academy should have a big one in season 3 Role-play).
The actually (several times) dead Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min) is alive in the alternate reality and wonders who the hell these weird Umbrellas are, everyone looks puzzled, “Shit”, cut to the credits. Become a viewer with a fat WTF ?! Dismissed on the forehead in the waiting time until the third season “Umbrella Academy”, but the cast itself had its own element of surprise.
The cast had no idea
Justin H. Min described his situation in an interview with Collider as follows:
“When I was shooting my farewell scene with Ellen Page and Vanya, I actually thought that this would be my last scene on the series. It was a really emotional scene because Ben is saying goodbye to his family there and for me as an actor it was like saying goodbye to the show and my crew family who have grown dear to me over the past six months . I’ve even known some of the crew for two years.
We had already received the draft for the tenth episode when I was shooting my scene with Ellen, but the last three pages were missing so none of us knew about it. And then, a few weeks later, it pinged my phone because a top secret email had arrived from showrunner Steve Blackman to the seven Hargreeves children. It said, ‘Here’s the final scene. I hope you like it. ‘I remember exactly how it was. It feels like yesterday.

It was 8:45 p.m. in my Toronto apartment, I read the scene and then just started screaming. I was ecstatic about coming back for another season of the show if Netflix extended the show.
3rd season very likely
Nothing should stand in the way of this extension by a third season. “The Umbrella Academy” is currently the most watched Netflix series in many countries (including Germany and the USA), thanks to the comic templates and an overview of the plot of the not yet published comics, there is enough material and the end of the second season will be yes not without reason have been designed so openly.
Justin H. Min is likely to return as Ben – possibly even as an opponent of the Umbrellas if they clash with the Sparrow Academy.
