What To Expect From The Umbrella Academy Season 3

Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy season 3 was perfectly set up by the season 2 finale – but when will it release and what will the story be? Based on the comic book series of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the first season of The Umbrella Academy was released on Netflix in February 2019 and was very well received by critics and audiences. In fact, the first season of The Umbrella Academy was even bigger than Stranger Things season 1. Not long after, it was renewed for season 2.

The Umbrella Academy follows the dysfunctional family of adopted siblings (and superheroes), the Hargreeves. On October 1, 1989, 43 women around the world gave birth at the same time, but none of them was pregnant when the day began. This curious event caught the attention of eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who set out to adopt as many of those babies as he could, and got seven of them. Reginald trained them and formed the superhero team “The Umbrella Academy.” However, he wasn’t the best father figure, and the siblings ended up parting ways. The Hargreeves reunited years later for Reginald’s funeral and to stop the fast-approaching Apocalypse, which was triggered by their sister Vanya, who everyone believed was powerless.

In order to save themselves from the end of the world, Five (Aidan Gallagher), made a major jump through time and space and took his siblings with him, but such an ambitious jump had consequences. The Umbrella Academy season 2 saw the Hargreeves landing in Dallas, but in different years between 1960 and 1963 – and they brought the apocalypse with them. While they reunited and averted the Apocalypse yet again, the Umbrella Academy season 2 finale found them jumping back to their present time–only to realize they’d ended up in in the right time, but the wrong place. The closing moments of season 2 set up everything for season 3, with the Hargreeves finding themselves face to face with the Sparrow Academy, who are seemingly versions of themselves from another universe. Here’s everything that’s known about The Umbrella Academy season 3 including the potential story, cast, and guesses as to when it might release.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 is on the way. In November 2020, Netflix confirmed The Umbrella Academy season 3, with the streaming platform tweeting, “They’re not done yet! The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is officially happening!” It came as no real surprise: The Umbrella Academy has been one of Netflix’s most popular original shows, rivaling the aforementioned Stranger Things and The Witcher. The audience for The Umbrella Academy grew even larger during season 2, making it all but inevitable that Netflix would order The Umbrella Academy season 3.

As is usually the case with Netflix shows, The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date remains unknown — despite how long ago the series was renewed. Netflix did announce in October 2021 that Umbrella Academy season 3 will arrive in 2022, but the exact day, or even month, of its release has yet to be revealed. While disappointing, it’s understandable. Filming for The Umbrella Academy season 3 began in February 2021 and didn’t end until August 2021. Star Tom Hopper explained that the extended length of the shoot was due to the new Covid-19 protocols slowing things down and making every shoot day shorter, requiring the production to take longer than usual. Considering how much VFX The Umbrella Academy season 3 could have, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to think it might not release until late summer or early fall of 2022.

The Umbrella Academy New & Returning Cast


The Umbrella Academy season 3 will see the return of all the actors playing the Hargreeves children in the first two seasons: Tom Hopper (Luther Hargreeves), David Castañeda (Diego Hargreeves), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison Hargreeves), Robert Sheehan (Klaus Hargreeves), Aidan Gallagher (Number Five), and Elliot Page (Vanya Hargreeves). Meanwhile, Justin H. Min will be playing Ben as his still-alive Sparrow Academy double in The Umbrella Academy season 3. Colm Feore will likely return as Sir Reginald Hargreeves, as well as Ritu Arya’s Lila Pitts, The Handler’s adoptive daughter and Diego’s ex-girlfriend.

Netflix also announced The Umbrella Academy season 3’s Sparrow Academy cast in January 2021. The new season 3 cast additions will include Justin Cornwell as team leader Marcus (Sparrow No. 1), Britne Oldford as the brilliant but solitary Fei (Sparrow No. 3), Jake Epstein as the battle-tested Alphonso (Sparrow No. 4), Genesis Rodriguez as the enigmatic Sloane (Sparrow No. 5), and Cazzie David as the quiet, shy Jayme (Sparrow No. 7). Interestingly, Christopher, a.k.a. Sparrow No. 7 is described as an “existential dread-inducing psykronium cube.Euphoria‘s Javon Walton also revealed he’s been cast, but it’s unknown what role he’s playing.

Umbrella Academy Season 3 Story Info

The Umbrella Academy season 2 what the posters reveal

So far, the Umbrella Academy comics have three volumes: Apocalypse Suite, Dallas, and Hotel Oblivion. Season 1 was based on Apocalypse Suite and season 2 on Dallas, though with big differences. Unsurprisingly, it was confirmed that The Umbrella Academy season 3 uses Hotel Oblivion. In the comics, the Hotel Oblivion was a sort of prison built by Reginald Hargreeves to contain all the enemies the Umbrella Academy defeated. On the outside, it looks like a swanky hotel, but it’s really a strange, torturous in-between location. Unless Reginald Hargreeves was keeping it secret, the Umbrella Academy never knew about it. But with it being a location in The Umbrella Academy season 3, it’s likely he created it for the Sparrow Academy timeline.

Along with the Sparrows, the Hargreeves now know at least one of the other 36 Umbrella Academy babies born on the same day and circumstances as them has superpowers: Lila. Lila escaped with a briefcase just as Diego and the rest were trying to convince her to join them and be part of their family, so it’s unknown where she’s now. However, the Hargreeves will have a bigger problem to deal with than Lila. The siblings are now back in the right era but the wrong timeline, where a different version of Ben is still alive and leading the Sparrow Academy team. The Umbrella Academy season 3 will likely see the Hargreeves dealing with this new and unknown timeline where they don’t have a home and there’s a different team in action, as well as with whatever plans and experiments Reginald has been working on and Lila’s possible return. In addition to all that, there’s the not small matter of The Umbrella Academy season 2 timeline’s Harlan Cooper (Justin Paul Kelly) and his terrifyingly strong powers, which could have consequences even after 56 years.
