The last episode of the second season of Umbrella Academy foreshadowed a sequel, but Netflix waited several months before confirming the information. Since July, fans of the Hargreeves family have been in utter doubt: Will season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will be produced by the streaming giant? Readers of the comics the show was based on knowing there was enough material to produce new episodes, but it was impossible to know the audiences for the show. The renewal of a series is very often dependent on its popularity… After having seen the second season in the top ten of the most-watched contents in France for several weeks, we were convinced to see Cinq and the whole gang again soon!
It was finally on November 10 that Netflix ended the suspense by confirming on its social networks that the third season was ordered. We also learned that filming is scheduled to begin in February 2021. It is even rumored that the American firm plans to produce several seasons! We tell you more below.
WE REVEAL ALL THE INFORMATION WE CURRENTLY HAVE ON SEASON 3 OF THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY: RELEASE DATE, FILMING, CASTING, RENEWAL …
You can imagine that the release date of Season 3 of Umbrella Academy has not yet been revealed. This is completely normal because the shooting has not even started. Also, with the current health situation, Netflix will never take the risk of announcing a date, as long as the new episodes are not in the post-production phase (editing, audio mixing, etc.). We know the cast will reprise their roles in February 2021 but it could go on longer than expected. Many shootings are interrupted because of the presence of positive cases for Covid-19. This, therefore, extends the duration of production, making the release date of new episodes on Netflix unpredictable.
Be careful because if you have not completed The Umbrella Academy, the rest of this article may contain spoilers. After being trapped in the 60s several years apart, the Hargreeves siblings finally returned in 2019 (thank you Five!). The problem is that they have completely changed the course of time and nothing is the same! The Umbrella Academy has become The Sparrow Academy and their father seems to have started a new family. The meeting is likely to be very eventful if you know what I mean. The title of the first episode of season 3 announces the color since it will be entitled ” Meet the Family “.
We can’t wait to get to know the members of Sparrow Academy and especially to learn more about their powers! The good news is that Ben will be back, but he might get along a little less with Klaus. Normally Pogo and Grace will also be present since the apocalypse did not take place. All the main actors will be back in Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy: Robert Sheehan (Klaus), Elliot Page (Vanya), Aidan Gallagher (Five), David Castaneda (Diego), Justin H. Min (Ben), Emmy Raver -Lampman (Allison), Ritu Arya (Lila), Tom Hopper (Luther), Colm Feore (Sir Reginald) …
Many of our readers have asked us about the coming out of Elliot Page, who announced his gender change to the world. According to Deadline, the actor will always play Vanya and the character will remain a woman in the series. This won’t be a problem for Elliot because as an actor he’s used to playing fictional characters. Netflix very quickly updated the first name of the one who plays Vanya, just like Allociné and IMBd, thank you to them for doing the necessary.
IS THE RELEASE DATE OF SEASON 3 OF THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY ALREADY PLANNED BY NETFLIX?
The shooting of the second season lasted seven months and ended in November 2019. Then the post-production teams needed seven more months to finalize the ten episodes. Fourteen months were, therefore, necessary to fully produce the new adventures of the Hargreeves family. If we apply the same logic, then we can assume that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will be released in April 2022. This is only a hypothesis, which will no longer be credible if, for example, there are more than ten episodes in the next season or the shooting is interrupted …
The audiences for the second season have not yet been revealed by Netflix but it seems that the series has set a new record. Many rumors claim that the streaming platform would not have ordered only season 3, but also four and five! Nothing is official for the moment but it seems credible to us for two reasons:
First, fiction was for several weeks the most-watched series in the world on Netflix. Then, Gerard Way’s comics will largely make it possible to produce at least thirty additional episodes. The two seasons used 80% of the scenario of the first two volumes. Season 3 could be based on the end of the second book and the next will use the story of the third ” Hotel Oblivion “.
