WARNING: This story contains spoilers for Umbrella Academy season 2
Umbrella Academy season two will be on Netflix on July 31 and fans have seen the shock return of some important characters. The first season focused on the death of Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) the adoptive father of The Umbrella Academy siblings. However, he makes a comeback in season two and fans are wondering if he killed President John F Kennedy.
Reginald Hargreeves died at the start of the first season of The Umbrella Academy, but he has since appeared in plenty of flashbacks.
The adoptive father of the Hargreeves siblings revealed to Klaus (Robert Sheehan), who can speak to the dead, that he killed himself in a bid to bring the family back together.
Sir Reginald goes on to play a huge part in the second season, however, as the gang travelled back to the 1960s and tracked down their father in the past.
The siblings are on a mission to hunt him down to find out more about President Kennedy’s assassination.
They believe the death of the president is what sparks the second apocalypse, and they must try to prevent it at all costs.
Diego (David Castañeda) was one of the first to come across their father in the past and he finds out just how evil he can be.
The siblings believe their father is associated with an organisation who is potentially plotting to kill the President.
President Kennedy had been visiting Dallas, Texas, in 1963 when he was shot.
The gang discovers a video recording which shows a figure which appears to be Sir Reginald at the scene moments before the President was killed.
Will Reginald Hargreeves kill the President?
The second season follows the siblings as they make numerous attempts to contact their father and find out more.
Diego, Five (Aidan Gallagher) and Lila (Ritu Arya) tried to get in touch with Sir Reginald, but the trio’s plot was interrupted by the assassins known as The Swedes.
The Swedes are the latest assassins to join the cast and they can be seen causing havoc in the trailer.
Sir Reginald is seen conspiring with the other members of the organisation, but he is interrupted after Five gets into a fight in the hallway.

Fans are still waiting to find out whether Sir Reginald had anything to do with the President’s death.
But the comic books on which the series is based could provide some clues as to what could happen next.
In the comics, Reginald Hargreeves is referred to as The Monocle.
He is an alien who disguises himself as an entrepreneur and famous scientist.
The comics say in an alternate timeline in which President John F Kennedy had not been assassinated, Reginald Hargreeves would have met him to deal with a nuclear missile crisis.
The missiles would have been taken by Hargreeves and eventually detonated by time-travelling assassins Hazel (Cameron Britton) and Cha-Cha (Mary J.Blige) after his death, which causes the end of the world.
With this in mind, Sir Reginald would have had some part to play in the President’s death as he would have been wiped out during the apocalypse.
However, the series has a tendency to deviate from the comics, and as Cha-Cha is supposedly dead, things are likely to play out differently.
