‘The Umbrella Academy’ has been one of the most-watched reveals on Netflix since its introduction on February 15, 2019. It broke some documents in viewership in September 2020, making it the sixth most-watched series of this year on the streaming giant. This superhero streaming tv series is based on the eponymous comic book series by Gerard Way and adapted for the screen from Steve Blackman and Jeremy Slater.
It follows a dysfunctional family of estranged siblings with superpowers who reunite to rescue the world. The series is well known for its surprising plot casts, and together with the next season unlocking a whole new aspect, the lovers can not wait to know what happens next. This brings up the question of whether or not there will be the third season. Here’s what we’ve got!
‘The Umbrella Academy’ season 2 landed in its entirety on July 31, 2020, on Netflix. The second season has ten episodes of 40-50 minutes each. So far as the third season is concerned, here is what we understand. The show has been revived for its next installment on November 10, 2020. The manufacturing team was able to begin filming the entire year in February 2021, remembering the safety and health protocols.
Taking under account the production program, we’ve noticed that season 2 arrived one and half years after the release of the first season. Therefore, we can expect the Umbrella Academy’ season 3 to release sometime in mid to late 2021. The forthcoming season is slated to include ten episodes of approximately one hour each.
Netflix has confirmed the yield of the following cast members: Elliot Page (Vanya Hargreeves/The White Violin), Tom Hopper (Luther Hargreeves/Spaceboy), Robert Sheehan (Klaus Hargreeves/The Séance), Aidan Gallagher (Number Five/The Boy), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison Hargreeves/The Rumor), Ritu Arya (Lila Pitts), David Castañeda (Diego Hargreeves/The Kraken), and Colm Feore (Sir Reginald Hargreeves/The Monocle). Justin H. Min (Ben Hargreeves/The Horror) are also returning but probably as a different character because he will be viewed as a member of The Sparrow Academy.
Considering that the series involves time travel and superpowers, we will not be surprised to see Kate Walsh (The Handler), Adam Godley (Pogo), Jordan Claire Robbins (Grace), and Justin Paul Kelly (Harlan) reprising their roles. Several new actors have joined the cast. They are Justin Cornwell (Marcus Hargreeves), Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane Hargreeves), Britne Oldford (Fei Hargreeves), Jake Epstein (Alphonso Hargreeves), and Cazzie David (Jayme Hargreeves). We might be introduced to new faces in the upcoming year, given that we are yet to fulfill more personalities.
In season 2, we know that Reginald (who’s still alive) forms The Sparrow Academy with Ben, five children, along with a floating green block. Lila turns out to become among the forty-three kids born on a fateful day in 1989, as she reveals that she also has abilities. Therefore, we know that The Umbrella Academy siblings aren’t alone. We’re also led to believe that The Handler is dead, but Lila escapes and survives. In terms of Harlan, he has managed to keep his telekinetic abilities.
The forthcoming season has many questions which it needs to answer, starting with what is The Sparrow Academy and the way The Umbrella Academy siblings return to their reality. We might also be introduced to the Televator, the device that allows traveling across space and time. Will Lila combine The Umbrella Academy or work is yet to be known. Overall, season 3 will probably adhere to the Hotel Oblivion arc of the comic book series, even though there may be some changes.
