When the fantasy series “The Umbrella Academy” started in February 2019, Netflix had a veritable hit with the public: right at the start weekend, the story about the Hargreeves siblings even overtook top series like “Stranger Things”. In the end, she was one of the ten most successful Netflix series in 2019. No wonder that a second season was ordered two months later – which is now in the starting blocks: From July 31, the new episodes can be seen. In addition, the second season of the German series hit “How To Sell Drugs Online (Fast)” starts at Netflix.
But the competition also has strong offers in July: Amazon shows the second season of the mystery series “Hanna”, Sky has a new edition dedicated to the detective “Perry Mason” and Magenta TV leads the story of the mafia hunter Saverio Barone (Francesco Montanari ) in “Il Cacciatore – The Hunter”.
