THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY: Netflix Announces 10-Episode Live-Action First Season For Next Year
Netflix hit big this week with the release of animated series, Castlevania, now on deck for a second season with more episodes. As it stands, they’ve now advanced a new project in the form of a new ten-episode live-action serial adaptation next year.
For this, we turn to The Umbrella Academy, inspired by the popular Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels from Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and illustrator Gabriel Bá. Per the press announcement on Tuesday, Universal Cable Productions is producing the series for a 2018 premiere date forthcoming.
The Umbrella Academy is a live action series that follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) — The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin — as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the comic series garnered much praise from fans and critics alike for its alternate and twisted take on the superhero genre.
“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix. I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and myself had when creating the comic, and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live action show,” said Gerard Way.
“What drew us to The Umbrella Academy is that it’s wholly unique, visual and stylized,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “These aren’t the usual superheroes, and this series will embrace the singular tone of the graphic novels — dark yet humorous, supernatural yet grounded in reality. We’re excited to see this world and introduce these unforgettable heroes to Netflix members around the globe.”
“It’s a thrill to be producing this wonderful show for Netflix,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions. “It’s been a passion project for the UCP development crew and we can’t wait to bring it to life.”
Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will executive producer and serve as showrunner, with Bluegrass Television and Dark Horse Entertainment’s own Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg executive producing. Way will serve as co-executive producer. Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist) adapted his own script for the pilot from the comic book series.
