Netflix has released a new trailer for the upcoming series based on the Dark Horse Comics series The Umbrella Academy.

The Umbrella Academy

The new trailer not only features new footage from the upcoming series, but also features a cover of ‘A Hazy Shade of Winter’ made famous by Simon and Garfunkel as well as The Bangles and sung by former My Chemical Romance front man and The Umbrella Academy co-creator Gerard Way.

On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

The show is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F.
