Season two of Netflix’s spectacular original series will finally be available at the end of this month. Before The Umbrella Academy hits screens once again, some observant fans have spotted some embarrassing mistakes in the catastrophic season finale.
Netflix’s first season of The Umbrella Academy took streamers by storm when the refreshingly original superhero series aired last year.
Based on the comic book series by Gerard Way, of My Chemical Romance fame, the first outing was a quirky, time-hopping adventure about a family of troubled superheroes.
Ellen Page stars as Vanya Hargreeves, a violinist who feels alienated from the rest of the group as the only sibling with no apparent supernatural abilities.
Major spoilers ahead – as the series progressed, Vanya discovers her father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), used drugs to suppress her chaotic ability to convert sound waves into a destructive force.
In the thrilling finale, Vanya succumbs to her dark powers and begins to unleash havoc on the Hargreeves’ mansion.
She is eventually incapacitated, but in doing so the superhero team inadvertently cause the destruction of the moon and fail their mission to prevent the Apocalypse.
Unfortunately, one eagle-eyed fan was able to look beyond the action-packed season finale and expose a glaring continuity error most viewers missed the first time round.
They took to online discussion forums to point out a strange mistake which occurs when Vanya boards a bus in the first season’s final episode, The White Violin.
They said: “When Harold goes to kill his father, we see his dad on the seat moving each time we hear the hammer, but if you look at his head, you don’t see anyone hitting him at all.”
The shocking reveal that Leonard wasn’t what he said he was appalled most fans, but clearly one observant viewer found this error a little too distracting not to point out.
Thankfully, the first season stands as one of Netflix’s best produced original series to date and usually managed to avert other mistakes.
Hopefully the cast and crew of The Umbrella Academy avoided similar blunders ahead of the second season’s release on July 31.
As the wait for the show’s return continues, Netflix streamers can check out the newly released trailer to boost their hype for the team’s new mission.
After failing to avoid the apocalypse the first time round, Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) sends The Umbrella Academy family hurtling backwards through time.
Sadly, the siblings all end up at different points of the 1960s and must find a way to reunite, find out what has caused yet another day of destruction and put a stop to it.
The Umbrella Academy season 2 will be available to stream July 31 on Netflix.
