Today was the first day of filming for Umbrella Academy and it looks like it got off to a great start!

We first caught wind of this news when Executive Producer and showrunner, Steve Blackman posted on Instagram. Showing the clapboard for the second take of the day.

And so it begins… #umbrellaacademy #netflix# UCP #firstday

But in some time warp kind of action, we later discovered through this post from Gabriel Ba that he and Gerard had been there to pose with the clapboard for the first take of the day!

During that commotion, we almost missed this post from Dawn Olmstead who is the executive VP of development for Universal Cable Productions, that shows them all taking in the action!

During his time on set, Gerard also posed for this picture with one of the actors, Cameron Brodeur.

And to end the night Gerard took to Instagram to let us know that the first day was “A spectacular start!”

Day 1. A spectacular start!

There you have it! Just like that- The Umbrella Academy Netflix series, as Gabriel Ba posted, “has officially begun!”

We are so excited to see more from behind the scenes and bring them to you, but even more excited to see the finished product! We can’t wait!
