Way created the graphic novel with illustrator Gabriel Ba, and the project came to life earlier this month on screen via the streaming service, starring Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, and Emmy Raver-Lampman as members of a dysfunctional adopted family of quirky superheroes.
The series premiered to rave reviews and has already been named the most successful digital series of 2019.
Sources tell GWW.com the second season of "The Umbrella Academy" will start shooting at the end of 2019 in Toronto, Canada, with Peter Hoar, who directed the pilot episode on board for more.
Meanwhile, Way has revealed he and Ba are working a future series of their cult comic book, based on an 18-page treatment he presented to TV show creator Steve Blackman and his team of writers.
"It laid everything out...," Way told Collider. "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."
