On the same day in 1989, 43 babies are born to random, unconnected women who were not pregnant the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire, who creates The Umbrella Academy to nurture their superpowers.

Years later, they reunite after the death of their “father” and discover they now have eight days to prevent the apocalypse and save the world in Netflix’s fun, twisted series.

It stars Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Colm Feore, Adam Godley, John Magaro, Ashley Madekwe, Kate Walsh

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics.

The show is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, along with executive producers Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Way, and Bá.

The Umbrella Academy premieres February 15 on Netflix.
