Sweet Magnolias Boss Breaks Down All the Cliffhangers in Season 2
Netflix hasn’t confirmed whether or not The Umbrella Academy will return for a second season. My Chemical Romance frontman and comic book series creator Gerard Way has previously hinted that there will be eight volumes in the series. This means there will be plenty of material for the TV adaptation.
Let’s start with the last shocking moment when Ryan proposes to Helen, who is very much with Erik (Dion Johnstone). Why did Ryan come back in this way, and what’s going to happen next with Helen?
But we wanted to bring him back at a time when his return would be most impactful and disruptive because that’s what the drama is all about. The main thing she needs to determine is what she’s going to tell [Ryan].
Our journey through season 2 has brought us to a point where Helen and Erik are beginning to find a balance between all of the challenges that they are dealing with. We’ve all had the pleasure of meeting a great person, only to realize that it’s not the best time because you’re already occupied with other things. One of the things we wanted to emphasize is the importance of working in concert with others. Our goal was to demonstrate what it may be like to have a thoughtful, attentive spouse who also has their baggage and problems.
We were looking for someone to shake things up, and Ryan is just the person to do so. I’m hoping for a third season so I can figure it out. Her words are in my head, but I have no idea when they’ll come out. If we’re lucky enough to get a third season, this will likely be one of the first subjects discussed in the writers’ room when we get together.
What inspired the exploration of Cal’s anger issues and his past?
To understand why a man would put so much effort into being likable, attentive, and easygoing in season 1, we have to look at Cal. We knew when we were writing him in season 1 that he was going to have a lot of sorrow from his past relationships, and he goes out of his way to make amends. As we reflected on his life before meeting Maddie, we speculated that if a lesser guy had crumbled, perhaps he had as well. We wanted to make it clear that he had already put in the time before meeting Maddie. That aspect of him would never be shown to Maddie or the kids, and if it was, it would be in defense of Maddie.
Wear what feels right for you — like comedian & actor Pete Davidson — and watch who shows up to compliment your style.

Cal is at a very low point when the season ends with the loss of his job and getting arrested after fighting at the restaurant. What’s next for him and Maddie?
A hypothetical third season would be a good time to analyze whether Cal handled the past events correctly, why he lost it when it is so important to him, and what decisions he can make in the future. For himself and for those he cares about.
It’s Maddie’s central problem that the new relationship she believed she’d discovered flops on the same rocks her marriage did, which is a lack of honesty, openness, and openness. Season 3 would require [Maddie] to do some introspection to figure out how she ended up in another relationship where she wasn’t receiving the full picture. Inadvertently, Call is re-igniting old wounds from her marriage to Bill.
When did you decide who would be Isaac’s biological parents?
That decision was made before we even started writing. For Isaac, we wanted to bring in a new take on Bill’s character, as well as someone who could bring a “new town” perspective, but who had a profound connection to the town.
It was important to us to explore the mystery of Peggy’s (Brittany L. Smith) decision to distance herself from the other women and form an alliance with Mary Vaughn (Allison Gabriel) when we began writing season 1. However, Peggy is not as tough as Mary Vaughn, she is more like the Magnolia family. We wanted to see if [giving Isaac up] was the choice we traced through to see how adult Peggy was made on our show, which examines how past choices continue to impact your present.

The effect that Bill Townsend will have on his kids is a big part of the Isaac reveal. What can you say about how the other characters are affected by this?
Tyler leaving baseball behind, for now, is a big change. What does this shift say about his story so far?
Jackson had a redemption story of sorts. What did you want to explore with his story this season and is there a parallel between him and his mother Mary Vaughn?
Kathy has a past in Serenity and plans for the present that will affect the future of everyone.
We didn’t bring in many new people for season 2 because we already have such a great group of actors. To get a season 3, we were thinking about how to end season 2. We thought, “Wouldn’t it be fun if it looks like everyone knows what they have to deal with in the future, and then this meteor comes out of nowhere?” We wanted to show that not everything is under control when we come back.
