Mary J. Blige joins 'Umbrella Academy' series at Netflix

Blige will play Cha-Cha, a ruthless hit-woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets.

Mary J. Blige has signed onto the upcoming Netflix series 'The Umbrella Academy.'

The live action series follows members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.

Blige will play Cha-Cha, a ruthless hit-woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets, according to Variety. Even though she has a few gripes about the bureaucracy of her employers, this job is her life. She is sadistic, sociopathic, and her reputation precedes her. The role will mark Blige’s first regular foray into series television, having previously appeared in guest roles on numerous shows.

The role reunites Blige and Netflix, with the iconic musician having appeared in the streamer’s Oscar-nominated film 'Mudbound.' Blige is nominated for best supporting actress for her role in the film.

This will definitely be worth a watch.
