'The Umbrella Academy' Season 2 Cast: Meet the New Stars of the Netflix Series

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 sees the family scattered throughout time, with Vanya (played by Ellen Page), Klaus (Robert Sheehan) and the rest of the cast scattered throughout Dallas in the early 1960s.

The Netflix show's new setting also means new cast members, as the team making new acquaintances and make new lives for themselves.

Allison (Emmy Ravey-Lampman), for example, finds herself involved in the civil rights movement and with organizer Raymond Chestnut (Yusuf Gatewood), while Diego (David Castañeda) finds himself in an asylum with Lila Pitts (Ritu Arya), who might have a link with a villain from The Umbrella Academy's first season.

Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy also introduced a new trio of villains in the form of Swedish assassins.
