added: Mon, Feb 11th '19

Netflix has released a new 30-second commercial for the offbeat superhero series "The Umbrella Academy," which is due to premiere this Friday.

Based on the award-winning Dark Horse comic book series by Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and illustrator Gabriel Ba, "The Umbrella Academy" centers on a dysfunctional group of misfits, each possessing special super-human abilities, who, at a young age, were adopted by the same eccentric billionaire (played by Colm Feore) and was raised to be famous superheroes.

Ellen Page (Juno, X-Men), Tom Hopper (Black Sails), Aidan Gallagher (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn), Robert Sheehan (Mortal Engines), Emmy Raver-Lampman (A Million Little Things), and David Castaneda (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) star as the main "Umbrella" heroes/adoptive siblings.

R&B singer-turned-actress Mary J. Blige (Mudbound) and Cameron Britton (Mindhunter) co-star as villainous hitwoman Cha-Cha and her partner-in-crime, Hazel. They have a fun time wreaking havoc, just as the Umbrella siblings are on a mission to prevent the apocalypse from happening, which is predicted to take place in eight days.

The Netflix series is executive produced by Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) alongside Jeremy Slater (creator of FOX's The Exorcist) with Chemical Romance's Gerard Way serving as co-executive producer. It debuts Friday, February 15th.

A dysfunctional family of superheroes comes together to solve the mystery of their father's death, the threat of the apocalypse and more. Adapted from the comic created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba.
