Kate Walsh joins Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy

Kate Walsh (13 Reasons Why, Private Practice) is set to join the cast of the Netflix original series The Umbrella Academy. She will be starring alongside the previously-announced Colm Feore (House of Cards) Cameron Britton (Mindhunter), Adam Godley (Breaking Bad), and Ashley Madekwe (Revenge).

Based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels of the same name created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics, the live-action series follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) – Luther (Hopper), Diego (Castañeda), Allison (Raver-Lampman), Vanya (Page), Klaus (Sheehan) and Number Five (Gallagher) – as they work together to solve their father Reginald Hargreeves’ mysterious death, while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.

Walsh is set for the recurring role of The Handler, a composed and confident leader of a mysterious, bureaucratic company. She’s always ready to manage any situation, big or small, but it’s best not to get on her bad side. That said, her charm is her greatest strength, and she uses it to her full advantage to complete the business of her organization.

Mary J. Blige, Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher also star in the series.

The Umbrella Academy is produced by Universal Cable Productions. Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) serves as executive producer and showrunner, with additional executive producers Bluegrass Television and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá serve as co-executive producers.
