The Umbrella Academy is the new Netflix binge-obsession (Picture: Netflix)Brace yourselves for more superhero adventures, as The Umbrella Academy boss has hinted there could be at least four or five more seasons to come thanks to popular demand.
The Netflix series, an adaptation of the comic book series written by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way, was only released last week but is already the hottest thing on the streaming platform.
It seems showrunner Steve Blackman has big ambitions for The Umbrella Academy, meaning you could be following their adventures until 2025 at least.
Speaking to Collider about the possibility of future seasons, Blackman teased: ‘I know Gerard has eight volumes in his mind so whether that translates to eight seasons, I don’t know.

There could be at least four more seasons in store (Picture: Netflix)‘We combine certain seasons, and bits and pieces. It would be lovely to have four or five years of this show. That would be wonderful.’
Imagine the places it could go with at least four more seasons?!
The Umbrella Academy centers on seven children who were bred with the sole purpose of saving the world from an unknown threat. It boasts a star-studded cast with the likes of Ellen Page, Mary J Blige, Robert Sheehan and Tom Hopper fronting the series.
News of the show’s longevity comes after Blackman revealed there may be a long wait for season two as it takes roughly 18 months to shoot one season.

The producer told IndieWire: ‘I hope we get a second and third and fourth season, but I knew that having a great ending is important for Netflix as a streamer.’
‘You really want people to say, “I’ve got to come back and watch what happens”. That was ultimate in my mind.’
