Gerard Way's 'Umbrella Academy' Reportedly Headed For Netflix

The Umbrella Academy

(Radio.com) A couple years ago, My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and Brazilian comic book illustrator Gabriel Ba announced they would be turning the comic book series The Umbrella Academy into a television series.

On Friday (July 7), inside sources told Splash Report that the series will appear on Netflix and that Way is "definitely involved in the project." The article does not reveal who these sources are, but confirm that an announcement will arrive soon, potentially at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.

"I definitely wrote the pilot for The Umbrella Academy," Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist, Death Note) told Collider back in September. "I was really adamant about taking the job, but the only way I was going to do it was if I could make it weird and make it true to the spirit of the book." Read more here.
