The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Dance Holds Up Nicely to The Original

On October 1, 1989, seven extraordinary humans were born; and on July 31, 2020, they return to us for a second season. That's when the second season of Netflix's The Umbrella Academy makes its way onto our screens, and to make the occasion viewers were treated to a special day announcement video. If you're like us and you've watched Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin Min dance in celebration of the show's return, you probably have everyone's dance moves scarred into your brains.

But even if you've gotten yourself to the point where you mumble the lyrics to "I Think We're Alone Now" in your sleep, the streaming service released a cool clip that you can check out below comparing the Hargreeves' original performance with their real-life counterparts' versions. Seeing them matched up side-by-side makes the home lockdown clip even more impressive:

In March, series creator/EP Steve Blackman took to Instagram to show the team working hard on post-production on the live-action adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba's comic book series. Then last month, Min offered us a personal glimpse into how ADR (Automated Dialog Replacement) recording was going (otherwise known as "looping"). At the beginning of May, Min shared an image from a Zoom meeting with EP Jeff King, Kripke, and the cast that shifted our hopes into overdrive.

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.
