Yusuf Gatewood (Good Omens) will play RAYMOND, a born leader with the smarts, gravitas, and the confidence to never have to prove it to anyone. He is warm, dedicated and has the innate ability to disarm you with a look. A devoted husband, he’s the kind of guy everyone wants to know.
Marin Ireland (Y: The Last Man) will be playing SISSY, a fearless, no-nonsense Texas mom who married young for all the wrong reasons. Still in her prime, she’s eager to rediscover what life and love has to offer.
Umbrella Academy follows the life of seven adopted children that were adopted by a billionaire who were part of forty three total infants that were inexplicably born to random, unconnected women that did not show any signs of pregnancy the day before.
