Gerard Way Talks Involvement In “The Umbrella Academy”


Gerard Way’s (My Chemical Romance) comic book series “The Umbrella Academy” is being turned into a Netflix series and is coming out next month, the 15th of February.

In a recent interview with Collider, Gerard Way has talked about his involvement in the show, besides being the brain behind the whole thing and being the co-executive producer.

Here’s what he said:

“What I did for Steve Blackman (the showrunner) and the writers in that first writers room was to create an 18 page document that laid everything out. Even of the graphic novels that haven’t come out yet. Which should equal eight when we’re all done.

So I gave them the blueprint for what happens, because you do want to seed certain things in there for future series and the hope is that it’s a success so that you do a lot more of these. They’re very curious what Gabriel and I are doing next.

We always send them the new comics. They really want to know what’s happening.”

Are you excited about the forthcoming show? Let us know your thoughts!
