By now, you know that on October 1, 1989, seven extraordinary humans were born. And that on July 31, 2020, Netflix's The Umbrella Academy returns to us for a second season. But what about May 28, 2020? Because according to the teaser below, that's when The Commission is set to reveal "time travel composites" of the Hargreeves (Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min). Clearly, whatever our seven are up to wherever or whenever they are, they are not making friends with those like Time flowing like a calm, uninterrupted stream. Except our heroes aren't really known for "calm" and are pretty well-versed in interrupting things on a regular basis.
Check out the teaser below, for what feels like maybe a teaser but most definitely some character profile key art showing when/where they are:

Here's a look at what appears to be the season's episode titles and writers, according to the WGA site. We're avoiding assigning them specific episode numbers until they're confirmed, but the running order for the season could be as follows (with writers included): "743" (Bronwyn Garrity and Roberto Askins), "A Light Supper" (Aeryn Michelle Williams), "OGA for OGA" (Nikki Schiefelbein), "Right Back Where We Started" (Blackman), "The End of Something" (Blackman), "The Frankel Footage" (Mark Goffman), "The Majestic 12" (Garrity), "The Seven Stages" (Goffman and Jesse McKeown), "The Swedish Job" (McKeown), and "Valhalla" (Robert Askins). Just a quick reminder that all of this is unofficial until it's official, but they do have us curious.
