Umbrella Academy reports that more have joined the cast of The Umbrella Academy for Netflix. Colm Feore (House of Cards, Thor), Ashley Madekwe (Revenge), and Adam Godley (Breaking Bad) have all joined the cast.

Feore, Britton, and Godley are set to appear as series regulars. Madekwe will have a recurring role in the show. They join the cast alongside Mary J. Blige, Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher.

The ten-episode first season of the series is based on the Dark Horse comics and graphic novels of the same name created and written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. The series follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) – Luther (Hopper), Diego (Castañeda), Allison (Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Page), Klaus (Sheehan) and Number Five (Gallagher) – as they work together to solve their father Reginald Hargreeves’ mysterious death, while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.

The show is slated to debut on Netflix in 2018.
