Netflix has announced that its live-action Umbrella Academy series will debut February 15, 2019. When Netflix first announced plans for the Umbrella Academy series, it was slated for a late 2018 release.

"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 Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world," reads Netflix's description of the series. "But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse."

Umbrella Academy is based on the Dark Horse comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.
