Will The Umbrella Academy return for season three? Check out!
The second season of The Umbrella Academy was a success. And this series, which quickly became a darling among the audience in the first season, returned with even more electrifying adventures for its superheroes, who make up a completely dysfunctional family.
The series follows the Hargreeves, seven brothers with extraordinary abilities, but who do not have the best relationship. On October 1, 1989, 43 women around the world gave birth at the same time, but none of them were pregnant when the day started. Shortly thereafter, eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves decided to adopt as many babies as possible, but he only managed seven. When they started to develop exclusive sets of superpowers, Reginald trained them and formed the superhero team “The Umbrella Academy”. Unfortunately, Reginald was not a good parent for children, and they all ended up going their own way.
In the second season, the protagonists escaped the apocalypse and went straight to the 1960s … only to come across a new apocalypse. And, given what was shown at the end, the audience is certainly looking forward to more. Thinking about it, the brought all the official information about the third season of The Umbrella Academy, for you who already watched all the episodes of the second year. Remember, we will give spoilers of the most recent episodes.
Has the series been renewed for season three?
Yes! On November 10, 2020, Netflix confirmed that it renewed The Umbrella Academy for a third season. However, the What’s on Netflix portal had already said in August that a secure source linked to the production confirmed that the third season has already been secured behind the scenes.
Now let’s go to a not-so-good part. The first season of The Umbrella Academy debuted in February 2019. Then, the second year was launched in July 2020. Given this space of 1 year and 5 months, and added to the uncertainties about the Covid-19 pandemic, we can assure you that it will be very difficult to have new episodes in 2021.
Netflix has also confirmed that recording will begin only in February 2021. Thus, the platform is expected to launch a new season of The Umbrella Academy only in late 2021 or the first half of 2022. Yes, we will have a long waiting period.
Cast: Who will be?
One person who apparently “met its creator” in the second season was The Handler, played by Kate Walsh. She was shot to death by a third of the “Ikea mafia”, but it seems unlikely that she left this for good forever. The manipulator had already survived a gunshot to the head during another fight, and somehow she always manages to avoid any unusual situation in which she finds herself. This is the biggest test of all time, but we have great hopes of seeing Walsh on screen again.
Justin H Min (Ben) will return for the third season, except this time he is not a member of the Umbrella Academy, but of the Sparrow Academy, whatever the hell it is. And clearly, he is no longer Ben, judging by that hair and a seriously bad attitude.
The rest of the Hargreeves will also be back, as, against all odds, they were alive and kicking ass at the end of the second season. So this is: Vanya (Ellen Page), Five (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Diego (David Castañeda), Luther (Tom Hopper) and Reginald (Colm Feore) will return.
There are also Grace (Jordan Claire Robbins) and Pogo (Adam Godley and Ken Hall) who can return, and newcomer Lila (Ritu Arya) who, now we know, can do everything her brothers can, only better.
Spoilers: what will happen in the plot of the third season?
The Umbrella Academy loves to make its viewers create theories, only to see afterward that they were wrong. At the end of the second season, we were led to believe that The Handler was dead and the Commission, free of its iron claws, will undergo much-needed reform. But, as we said, we wouldn’t be remotely surprised if she appeared again in another fabulous pair of heels with a bigger and better plan up her sleeve.
Handler’s daughter, Lila, managed to escape in the end, but we bet a lot of money on her resurging in the third season. Will she stay with Umbrella Academy, or use her powers against them? The fans will be waiting for Lila-Diego’s happy ending, so we hope so.
But before we talk about happy endings, there is the subject about The Sparrow Academy, which will undoubtedly gain prominence. Who are they, how did they come to be and what does all this mean for Umbrella Academy? According to Forbes, volume four of the comic book series will be called ‘ Sparrow Academy ‘.
“ [He] deals with a big revelation in the Umbrella Academy universe, something that was secret for a long time, and our brothers discover a lot about what was going on behind the scenes, in addition to discovering the true nature of some characters, who are with them from the beginning, ” said co-creator Gerard Way. “The series finally begins to answer the question, ‘What about the other babies born that day, that moment?’ The Umbrella Academy brothers are no longer alone in the world. ”
Also, now that Reginald’s true form has been revealed, are we finally going to find out more about his grand plan? There was mention of the “ dark moon ”, but how does it all fit together? Without a doubt, many plots to explore in the third season.
