Rita Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, and Marin Ireland have been cast for the second season of Netflix’s Umbrella Academy.
Best known for her work on Humans, Arya will play Lila – “a chameleon who can be as brilliant or as clinically insane as the situation requires. Unpredictable, mischievous and sarcastic, Lila’s gifted with a twisted sense of humor.”
Gatewood (Good Omens) has been cast as 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..”
And coming from FX’s upcoming Y is Marin Ireland, who here will play a “a fearless, no-nonsense Texas mom” named Sissy “who married young for all the wrong reasons. Still in her prime, she’s eager to rediscover what life and love has to offer. “
Filming of Umbrella Academy‘s second season began in June, although Netflix has not specified a release date.
