The Irish star appears in the role of Klaus Hargreeves ('Number Four') in Netflix's unorthodox superhero show.
Portlaoise actor Robert Sheehan has confirmed his return as the role of Klaus Hargreeves in Netflix's unorthodox superhero show The Umbrella Academy.
Sheehan describes the character as a flaky, messy, drug addict who attempts to keep the party going 24 hours a day to escape from the screaming voices inside his head.
In season 1, each of the seven adopted Hargreeves children are gifted with special powers and are forced to utilise them to try and stop the approaching apocalypse.
In a virtual reunion video, cast members Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min recreate the fan-favourite dance scene from the first season in order to announce the drop date of season 2.
Set to the song 'I Think We're Alone Now' by Tiffany, the cast recorded themselves dancing in their homes to reveal that the show will return to Netflix on July 31, 2020.
The Umbrella Academy is adapted from the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel series created and written by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá.
Showrunner Steve Blackman, who previously worked on Fargo and Altered Carbon, returns for the second outing alongside executive producers Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá. Way and Bá also serve as co-executive producers.
Joining the cast for season two are Yusuf Gatewood (The Originals), Marin Ireland (Homeland) and Ritu Arya (Humans).
