The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy

A tribute to one of Netflix’s top 10 shows of 2019 and a personal favourite of ours, The Umbrella Academy which debuted exactly 1 year ago last February. With season 2 set to land some time in 2020, we’ve super stoked to find out what’s in store for the Hargreaves kids after the climatic ending in Season  1.

The show is an adaptation of the comic series by Gerard Way (of the rock band My Chemical Romance) and tells the story of a dysfunctional superhero family through a quirky, Wes-Anderson-shaped Prism. The seven Hargreeves siblings were brought together by an eccentric billionaire whose plans to save the world took precedence over being a good dad – and the kids were all damaged as a result.

In addition to a killer soundtrack, who could forget this iconic dance scene to Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now at their childhood home; arguable the best part of the series for us.

All the children are given numbers rather than names (although they all eventually got named by their nanny robot mother, Grace). All but Number 5, who has the ability to jump through space and time and travelled into the future as a child and eventually returned as an adult stuck in his 13 year old body in time to warn his siblings of an impending apocalypse.

Our Number 5 sock features the iconic umbrella logo and tells a cautionary tale of those who dream of time travel but fear for what the future might hold.
