Words by Shurida Lundi. Two-time Oscar-nominated singer Mary J . Blige is making her back way to Netflix for the upcoming show The Umbrella Academy . The show is based on a comic book series by Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance.

Celebified • 3 months ago. We. Love. Mary . J . Blige . Heathers Series Cancelled At Paramount Network Due To… Celebified • 7 days ago. School violence is not entertaining.

For someone who claims to not want any more drama in her life, Mary J. Blige‘s new role sounds awfully dramatic.

The Oscar nominee is joining the cast of Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, an adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s series of graphic novels about the “estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes.” The super-powered siblings must come together to solve their father’s murder, all the while “coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.” (You know, normal family stuff.)

MARY J. BLIGE with collar shirt © Provided by TVLine Blige is filling the series-regular role of Cha-Cha, a “ruthless and unorthodox hitwoman who travels through time to kill assigned targets.” Known far and wide for her sadistic, sociopathic tendencies, Cha-Cha believes only in torture and pain — and cares only for her partner Hazel.

Blige’s prior television credits include ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder and black-ish, Fox’s Empire and NBC’s The Wiz Live!


'Lost in Space' Reboot: Netflix Sets Premiere Date, Unveils First Teaser .
Lost in Space finally has a launch date. Netflix has announced that its reboot will lift off on Friday, April 13 — a decidedly unlucky day for the Robinson family. The drama, which was ordered to series last June, will take its cues from the original ’60s series. Set 30 years in the future, the Robinson clan finds itself among those first selected to colonize space. They are forced to come together and forge new alliances after crash-landing on a lost planet, which is light years from their intended destination.
