Umbrella Academy: Possibly renewed without Number Five?

Fans of the show have been extremely eager for renewal news ever since Aidan Gallagher (Number Five) posted some cryptic tweets.

These tweets come after other cast members implied the show was on thin ice - when asked about the future of the show in a recent interview, Emmy Raver-Lampman (Number Three)'s only response was "I wish!  Call up Netflix."  However, recent news from Production Weekly is indicating the show will start filming Season 2 in May under the production title “Mercury”.

This information has been met with mixed responses - most fans want a second season, but in combination with the aforementioned tweets, it's looking like Number Five will possibly be re-cast, or removed from the story completely.

Netflix has yet to confirm or deny the show's renewal, but audience reception has been mostly positive.

Sorry to the mods, who had to survive my 50 failed attempts at correctly submitting this post LOL but yeah, I really hope this show gets a 2nd season, it got so good after the first two episodes :( but Aidan Gallagher was one of the biggest standouts so I can't imagine it without him...
