Being a Netflix Original, the first season dropped exclusively on the streaming giant on February 15, 2019. Shortly after a few weeks of its release, Netflix announced that the show has been immensely popular and watched by 45 million households. It was one of the most streamed shows on Netflix in 2019.

The Umbrella Academy Synopsis
The series is about a family of former child superheroes connected by a common foster father and unusual births. They must come together to unravel mysteries and save the world from an apocalypse.
In 1989, on one fine day, 43 infants are mysteriously born to random, unconnected women who were not pregnant the day before. Astonishingly, none of the women even showed signs of pregnancy.
Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, adopts seven of these infants. He creates ‘The Umbrella Academy’ where he prepares his “children” to save the world from doomsday. In their teenage years, the family splits, and the team/academy scatters.
In the present time, when all of them are adults, the clan reunites upon receiving the news of Hargreeves’ demise. Six of them work together to investigate the mystery behind their father’s death. But, the estranged family is once again torn apart because of their conflicting personalities and abilities. Furthermore, a worldwide apocalypse is another impending threat that The Umbrella Academy must deal with.
