Robert Sheehan (who plays Klaus Hargreeves/Number Four) previously said the show's creators are already 'developing' ideas for a follow-up series.

"A few little ideas have been thrown around, absolutely," he told Collider.

"I know that it's Netflix's way wait until something has come out because it has to be seen before they will officially commission, but I know that they've been developing ideas and stuff for a second [season] because they have high hopes for the series.

"They're getting ahead of themselves, which is always a good sign. So, there's definitely been some conversations had about where the family would go, for the season."

While Netflix doesn't release its viewing statistics, data firm Parrot Analytics says that The Umbrella Academy is sitting in top of digital original series in the US.
