Netflix’s ‘Umbrella Academy’ Top Binge on TV Time Charts

Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy” was the top binge, while the BBC’s “Get Even” was the top show on the rise on the TV Time charts for the week ended Aug. 2.

The second season of “The Umbrella Academy” hit screens July 31. The series, based on the comic books of the same name, follows a group of superheroes adopted at birth by a mysterious billionaire who face the end of the world. As season two begins, the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas over a three-year period starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who have survived. The series also came in at No. 2 on the rising show chart.

Top rising show “Get Even,” which streamed beginning in February on BBC’s iPlayer service, July 31 began streaming on Netflix. The British crime show follows four private school classmates who team up to expose schoolwide injustices.
