Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams in Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.

Woke up at night
I heard floating chords
They guided me
To the highland fjords
Above the clouds
On a mountain peak
There he sat
And he began to speak

Volcano Man
He’s got my melting heart
Volcanic Protector Man
A timeless hero must love too
Volcano Man

Guarding the land

And I love you

On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.

Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father’s passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Content Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá.
