11 September 2019, 16:25
Ritu Arya (Humans), Marin Ireland (The Slap) and Yusuf Gatewood (The Originals) join season 2 of Netflix's The Umbrella Academy as Lila, Sissy, and Raymond.
The Umbrella Academy hive, assemble. While fans eagerly await the hit Netflix show's second season, news of three new additions to the talented cast hint at plenty of wild adventures for the Hargreeves siblings.
The Umbrella Academy's official Instagram account shared the news this week (10 September), writing: "We heard a rumor that some new friends are joining in season 2."
Ritu Arya, Marin Ireland and Yusuf Gatewood join The Umbrella Academy as Lila, Sissy and Raymond, respectively.
The character descriptions for Lila, Sissy and Raymond are pretty vague, though they hint at some fascinating personalities going into season 2.
Ritu Arya as Lila
Lila is described as "a chameleon who can be as brilliant or as clinically insane as the situation requires". She's also "unpredictable, mischievous" and "sarcastic" with a "twisted sense of humor".
We definitely see her making a big impact on the team dynamic. You'll know Ritu Arya from Channel 4's Humans.
Yusuf Gatewood as Raymond
Raymond is described as a "born leader and devoted husband" who has "the smarts, gravitas, and confidence to never have to prove it to anyone" (whatever that means!).
Could Raymond be an ally to the time travelling siblings? Only ~time will tell. Meanwhile, you undoubtedly recognise the actor from The Originals and Amazon Prime's Good Omens.
Marin Ireland as Sissy
Sissy is described as a "fearless, no nonsense Texas Mom" who "married young for all the wrong reasons" and is "eager to rediscover what love has to offer".
Does "eager to rediscover what love has to offer" mean Sissy could be romantically linked to a Hargreeves sibling? We'll find out soon enough. Marin is best known for previous roles on Squeaky Pete and The Slap.
Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy is already in production and we're sure all three newcomers are already slaying their scenes with the rest of the cast.
