Netflix’sThe Umbrella Academy, the superhero story of a dysfunctional family we never knew we needed is finally out. And if you grew up watching and loving X-Men or The Watchmen, you’re in for a treat.
The story revolves around a dysfunctional family of superheroes who reunite following their adoptive father’s death to stop the end of the world.
Here’s what Twitter has to say about the 10-episode-long series.

Just marathoned this and didn’t know what I was in for. What a fucking great ride this was. I’m still blown away. I cant wait for season 2.— Jay (@WhiteHotHeat23) February 18, 2019
I just binged the shit out of The Umbrella Academy (@UmbrellaAcad) in under 24 hours. Holy Shit. Completely enraptured by these characters and this story. It’s been a while since something has so completely gotten under my skin. Nice work. 👍 pic.twitter.com/hzGsFKFraA— Justin Courtney Pierre (@jcpmcs) February 17, 2019
An uplifting feel good to be yourself show that mixes every emotion together with a little scope of 80’s music 🎶 Move over DC Comics & Marvels because The Umbrella Academy is moving in! Oh please let there be another season!!!!— spazmama2001 (@spazmama2001) February 18, 2019

Just finished the series, honestly it’s really good. I’d recommend anyone to watch it.— KB (@KB_Carolina) February 18, 2019
my night/day: binge watched @UmbrellaAcad until 7 a.m., woke up at 10 a.m., got a coffee so i could research the show the comics and all fan theories, made a pot of coffee, and am now binging again… this is productivity at its finest— 💀jacqui💀 (@spoopyqui) February 18, 2019
What an amazing series, great acting and really enjoyed the entire season. The music was phenomenal congratulations on well put together series.— Francis Esguerra (@FrancisEsguerr5) February 18, 2019
the series was very good but had some pacing issues, i still very much enjoyed it even if it dragged sometimes the production design more than made up for it (plus one of the best “kid” actor i’ve seen in a while)— Lorenzo Lapenna (@SkrullsLover) February 19, 2019
#UmbrellaAcademy mini-review. Fun & quirky take on the Superhero genre with time traveling & unique characters. Amazing music. The dysfunctional team dynamics are a blast to watch but the story pace is frustratingly slow at times and the plot needlessly stretched. 7.8/10 pic.twitter.com/kxROqEuS0f— Mars Dorian (@MarsDorian) February 24, 2019
I keep seeing meh reviews for Umbrella Academy and I’m baffled because so far I love it. Child assassins! Robot moms! Siblings who kinda want to bang! Ellen Page at her Ellen Pagest! DELORES! Also MARY J. BLIGE is in this as a super low-key bad guy and it’s amazing.— leupagus (@leupagus) February 24, 2019
This is so good + 2 of my fabourite modern actors….Tom Hopper and Ellen Page. Great cast, amazing sound track and genius scripts and plot lines. Mr Hopper you have fallen on your feet again.🙂— Batty Hagg (@battyhag) February 17, 2019
Okay, but like, could the music in @UmbrellaAcad be any more perfect? 5 episodes in and I can safely say I am completely obsessed.— tonight we are victoria-us 🎉 (@vickisylvia) February 18, 2019
I binge watched the whole series in one go on Saturday. I just couldn’t stop watching.— Be More Misha 💜💟🖤🇪🇺 (@AquaMarina1987) February 22, 2019
I have watched this in under 6 days, and I’m sitting down wondering when is season 2 coming out! 😍😭 Today is another day where I will be rewatching the show again.— Sarrha Bayani (@MochichimC) February 23, 2019
What a phenomenal show! Whoever did your soundtrack also does some major kudos. Can’t wait for season two!— Anthony Ferraro (@Andyboebandy) February 17, 2019
It seems Netflix doesn’t need Marvel to create a successful superhero series!
