The Umbrella Academy returns to Netflix today after nearly two years of waiting if you can believe it and faces the challenge of taking down Stranger Things (for at least a few weeks anyway), but it will be able to do it.

“After putting an end to doomsday 1963, Umbrella Academy returns home to the present, convinced that it has prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this forgotten timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize that things aren’t quite (okay, not at all) as they left them. Enter Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish and as hot as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately collide with the Umbrellas in a violent confrontation that turns out to be the least of everyone’s worries.
