Despite filming most of the story in Dallas around 1963 – with the JFK assassination looming on the horizon – Umbrella Academy spent the first few minutes of its second season setting some very familiar stakes in place: an apocalypse that could only be avoided if Umbrella Academy could figure out what was causing it and how to stop it within days.

For most of the season, it has been difficult to understand why Umbrella Academy builds season two around a story that echoes the first season so bluntly. If you were generous, you could argue that Umbrella Academy maintained that history repeats itself; if you weren’t generous you could argue that Umbrella Academy just repeated to himself.
