Umbrella Academy Gets 10-Episode Order From Netflix


It’s official: Netflix has picked Gerard Way’s The Umbrella Academy for a 10-episode first season order! The pilot is based on a script from  Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist), and Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will serve as executive producer.

“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix,” said Gerard Way. “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.”
