TV Series (2019-Present Day). 2 Seasons. 20 Episodes. A disbanded group of superheroes reunite after their adoptive father, who trained them to save the world, dies.

Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, and turned into a superhero team that he calls "The Umbrella Academy." Hargreeves gives the children numbers rather than names, but they eventually are named by their robot-mother, Grace, as: Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Number Five (his only name), Ben, and Vanya.
