Queen Of The Screen: Mary J. Blige Joins New Netflix Series ‘The Umbrella Society’

Published: Monday 12th Feb 2018 by Sam

Mary J. Blige has conquered the music industry and she’s now making a name for herself in the acting arena.

The seasoned songstress recently made headlines when she nabbed nominations at both the Oscars and Golden Globes for her role in ‘Mudbound.’

Now, she’s taking her talent’s one of Netflix‘s most hotly anticipated new shows.

Full story below…

Per Variety, MJB has joined the cast of ‘The Umbrella Academy.’

Based on the like-titled graphic novels, the series follows estranged members of a misfit family of superheroes (‘The Umbrella Academy’). Attempting to put aside their differences, Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five strive to solve their father’s mysterious death. And their own disfunction serves as one of their biggest obstacles.

A marked departure from previous roles, Blige’s character Cha Cha is described as a “sadistic, sociopathic, and ruthless” hit-woman. She journeys through time to kill her targets. She has reservations about her employers, but her job is her everything.

The news comes weeks after the 47-year-old received a coveted star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame. 

Keep an eye out for ‘The Umbrella Society’ when it arrives on Netflix later this year.
