The second season of The Umbrella Academy is here, and while it’s a big improvement over season 1, it’s also a meme goldmine.

In The Umbrella Academy season 2, the misfit Hargreeves siblings attempt to save the world after they end up scattered throughout ’60s Dallas, but it doesn’t come without a series of complications, messes, violence, and absurdity along the way.

Quite a lot happens in season 2. So much so that you can easily make different versions of the “spoilers without context” meme with maybe one or two overlaps.

Even with its powers and quirks, The Umbrella Academy is incredibly relatable. For instance, Five (Aidan Gallagher)—the brains of the entire operation who manages to stay on task, is the very epitome of our collective mood right now, whether he’s in the midst of exasperation or gets extremely upset over his Fudge Nutter not coming out of the vending machine.

The relatability goes even further when The Umbrella Academy explores just how little any of the Hargreeves siblings are able to cope with the chaos around them.

Even the memes themselves can be used interchangeably as a single reaction video featuring two people silently flipping off each other can equally apply to several different characters.

For many fans, the real MVPs of the season are easily Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Ellen Page), and Klaus (Robert Sheehan) with another standout dance.

Netflix has yet to renew The Umbrella Academy for a third season, but given the way that season 2 ended, there’s more than enough room for one to happen.
