Ellen Page popped by the studio discuss all thing The Umbrella Academy and the possibility of a second season.

You might have noticed that we're getting VERY excited about The Umbrella Academy premiering on Netflix this Friday (Feb 15). We've had a sneak preview of the show and we think you're gonna love it. I mean, what's not to like about a superhero series with an amazing cast and soundtrack, based on the comics by Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance?

For those not in the loop, The Umbrella Academy follows the dysfunctional Hargreeves family of superheroes as they reunite, 17 years after they were first adopted together, to try and solve the mystery of their adoptive father's death (Sir Reginald Hargreeves, played by Colm Feore).

The cast features a number of familiar faces, including Mary J Blige and Robert Sheehan (UK readers will recognise him as Nathan from Misfits), and then there's the icon that is Ellen Page.

Yes, Juno is all grown up and she plays a violin now and goes by the name Vanya and she's the only one of the siblings without a superpower (OR IS SHE MMHHMMM?!) Ellen stopped by the PopBuzz studio to discuss working on the show with Gerard Way, which other Hargreeves sibling she would have liked to have played, and the possibility of a season two (it's got to happen, right?)

Watch the full interview above (or on YouTube) and make sure you watch The Umbrella Academy on Netflix, out this Friday.
