The superhero series stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher
After an electrifying second season, The Umbrella Academy is gearing up to make a return this year. One of the most shocking revelations of the last season involved the character of Lila Pitts, played by Ritu Arya. The actress recently talked about what she looked forward to in the upcoming season in terms of her character.
In a conversation with ComicBook.com, Arya said "I hope that the audience enjoys seeing Lila sort of developed further down the line, seeing more of her. I hope that it's going to be fun to watch. I really had fun filming it and delving deeper into her character more and her relationships with the family more.“
In the second season’s finale, Lila was revealed to be one of the 43 babies who were born on October 1, 1989 to women who seemingly did not display any signs of pregnancy till then, making her a sibling to the Hargreeves. It was also revealed that her adoptive mother, The Handler, had ordered Lila’s parents to be killed so she could raise Lila as her own daughter.
Based on the comic book characters created by Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy tells the story of a billionaire who adopts five children with powerful abilities, born under similar mysterious circumstances, and trains them to become superheroes.
In addition to Arya, the series stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaneda, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J Blige, John Magaro, Adam Godley, Colm Feore, Justin H. Min, Yusuf Gatewood, Marin Ireland, and Kate Walsh.
The first two seasons of The Umbrella Academy are available to stream on Netflix.
