First Look: Mary J. Blige As Ruthless Cha Cha In New Netflix Show ‘The Umbrella Academy’

Published: Tuesday 11th Dec 2018 by TGJ Staff

Golden Globe nominee Mary J. Blige continues flex her acting gravitas. And this time it’s in Netflix‘s new series ‘The Umbrella Academy.’

Based on a comic book series of the same name, written by Gerard Way, the series follows estranged members of a misfit family of superheroes (‘The Umbrella Academy’).

Trying to put aside their differences, Luther, Diego, Allison, Vanya, Klaus and Number Five strive to solve their father’s mysterious death – but their own disfunction serves as one of their biggest hurdles.

Blige’s character of Cha Cha is said to be an “unorthodox hit-woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets.” Also described as ‘sadistic and sociopathic,’ Cha Cha has a love for torture and deems herself a ‘pain artist.’ The role comes on the heels of widely praised showing in Netflix film ‘Mudbound.’

Ahead of the show’s February 15th debut, watch the first trailer for ‘The Umbrella Academy’ below…

Intriguing! We’re looking forward to see how Blige fares in such a complex role.
