“I heard a rumor”–well not quite–it’s a fact! Netflix has renewed its hit superhero series, “The Umbrella Academy” for a third season!
As you may recall Season 2 ended on a cliffhanger. The Umbrella Academy faced and narrowly defeated another super powered human who could mimic all of their abilities. The Hargraves Siblings returned to the present and finding the future has been altered. Not only is there adoptive father, Sir Reginald Hargraves alive, but he has a different team of heroes, “The Sparrow Academy” instead led by their previously deceased brother, Ben!
Here’s what we know surrounding the third season:
The cast set to reprise their roles include Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore.
Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will return as Showrunner and Executive Producer.
Executive Producers for Season 3 alongside Blackman include Jeff F. King (EP/D), Mike Richardson (EP), Keith Goldberg (EP), Jesse McKeown (EP), Gerard Way (Co-EP), and Gabriel Bá (Co-EP).
The season three order includes 10 one-hour episodes and will be produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, for Netflix.
Production will begin in February in Toronto, Canada.
Season 2 of the critically-acclaimed show premiered on July 31, 2020.
Needless to say we are very excited about this news. is one of our favorite Netflix series! The second season gave all the characters more depth and showed just how formidable they are when they fight together. The cliffhanger seems to hint we will explore the powers and abilities of the 38 other super powered children–now adults–Sir Reginald did not adopt.
Will we be seeing a showdown between The Umbrella and Sparrow Academies? Only time will tell. We will keep you posted on more about Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy” as it comes out!
