The UMBRELLA ACADEMY SEASON 3 – Release date, cast, plot and teaser photos.
After messing with some time travel, the Hargreeve siblings make it back to what they think is their present at the end of Umbrella Academy Season 2.
While they make it back to the 21st century, it is not the one they remember. In place of The Umbrella Academy is the Sparrow Academy and in it is someone we didn’t expect to see again – Ben Hargreeve (Justin H Min).
Ben died… a couple times.
Once years before the events in Umbrella Academy take place and then again as ghost who has been visible to only Claus.
At the end of Season 2, ghost Ben enters the mind of Vanya (Elliot Page) stop her from destroying the world. But being in there is too much for him, and after talking her down, he disintegrates never to be seen again (except by Claus).
Or so we thought. The final minutes of Season 2 shows the Hargreeves return to what we assume is an alternate reality in the present, with a very much alive Ben wondering who on earth they are.
So – now what?
The new Season will inevitably explore this new Sparrow Academy, but remember that there’s a whole organisation out there that’s keeping a close eye on all these timelines – The Commission.
While The Handler (Kate Walsh) was killed at the end of Season 2, remember that this tough femme-fatale has survived a shot to the head before. Regardless, the Commission will no doubt have a role to play in this next Season.
Umbrella Academy Season 3 release date
A third season was confirmed in November 2020.
Six months later, we still don’t have an official release date. But we now know that the production end date is currently set for September 2020 – meaning there is a possibility that we could see the new season air in early 2022!
All we know are the next ten episodes of the installment are being filmed now! To help ease the anticipation Netflix have just released the episode titles for Season 3:
301: Meet the Family
302: The World’s Biggest Ball of Twine
303: Pocket Full of Lightning
305: Kindest Cut
307: Auf Wiedersehen
308: Wedding at the End of the World
309: Six Bells
All the Hargreeve Siblings return in season 3, so you can expect to see Elliot Page (Vanya), Robert Sheehan (Klaus), Aidan Gallagher (Five), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison), David Castañeda (Diego) and Tom Hopper (Luther).
The siblings’ adopted father Reginald (Colm Feore) will also return.
In the alternative reality the siblings return to, the Umbrella Academy has been replaced with the Sparrow Academy.
The show’s creators have revealed exactly who is in this group:
Justin Cornell as Marcus, Britne Oldford as Fei, Jake Epstein as Alphonso. Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane, Gazzie David as Jayme and of course Justin H Min as Ben.
There’s a heap of photos showing the Sparrow Academy and Umbrella Academy.
But the real behind the scenes shots come from the cast themselves, primarily Elliot Page (formerly Ellen Page).
In one Instagram post, a small white note is visible in one of Elliot’s selfies, with a sparrow sitting on top of an umbrella – the logo being used for the second season.
Another shows her and her Hargreeve sister Alison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) posing together on set.
We’ll all be waiting for more details in coming months behind what promises to be an exciting next Season.
