Gerard Way begins writing next ‘Umbrella Academy’ volume

Christos Kalohoridis/NetflixThe next chapter of Gerard Way's The Umbrella Academy comic book series is in the works.

Following the new release of The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion, the former My Chemical Romance leader reveals that he's "just started" writing Volume 4.

"Hopefully it won't be too long before a new issue hits the stands, seeing as how [Volume 3] ends on a major cliffhanger," Way writes in an Instagram post.

The Umbrella Academy, which first debuted in 2007, follows a dysfunctional family of superheroes who must band together to stop the apocalypse.

A live-action TV adaption of the series premiered on Netflix earlier this year to critical acclaim. The show's second season is currently in production.
