'Smithereens', starring Andrew Scott (AKA the hot priest from Fleabag, Moriarty from Sherlock) and Topher Grace (That 70s Show) centres around a cab driver with an agenda whose day spirals rapidly out of control.

The Umbrella Academy is undoubtedly Netflix's break-out hit of 2019. 

The series is based on My Chemical Romance’s former frontman Gerard Way’s comic book of the same name, and the supernatural dystopian series focuses on a selection of individuals who have superpowers, who were collected by an eccentric mogul to attend his special school to hone their skills.

The Academy was disbanded, but following his death, the students returned as adults to fight to save the world from the apocalypse.

Featuring time travel, romance and some very dark humour, the show was an instant hit with fans who already loved Netflix content such a Stranger Things, The Mist, and IO. 

The original series only arrived on Netflix in February, but thanks to our binge-watching ways, many people finished the series in days – and fans were already clamouring for more.

Despite previous claims by the cast to the contrary, it now seems that Netflix is reassembling the Academy for season 2.

There will be 10 one-hour episodes in the second season, and Irish actor Robert Sheehan has been confirmed to return to his role for act 2.

Last month, while fans begged for a confirmation of season two, 15-year-old actor Aidan Gallagher, who plays the role of Number 5, was unable to say whether or not the Umbrella Academy would be returning.

'While I have no doubts because I've been to the future (it sucks by the way) — no word from Netflix on a 2nd season has been given to anyone yet,' he replied to a tweet.

'When it comes they will make it loud and headline clear to all.'

The announcement was made via social media, as the show's Instagram page posted a large image of the number 2 to their 1.1 million followers, which then plays a video of the final scene of season 1.

Aidan has since posted a similar video to his page, saying: 'We’re back! Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy has been OFFICIALLY announced by Netflix!'

Robert Sheehan also reacted to the news over on Twitter, remarking: 'Yeaaarrrr babay, dia dhuit agus slán go fóill'

Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman and Justin H. Min are also set to return to their roles.

Ellen celebrate the news of a second season by sharing some fan art to her Instagram page by a very talented illustrator.

The illustration also pays homage to season 1's famously dramatic and cliff-hanging end. 

There is no word yet on when we can expect the new season, but Netflix has been accelerating their production of follow up seasons for Original content, so hopefully we wont be waiting too long.
