The third season of The Umbrella Academy will premiere on Netflix later this year. Despite the fact that we do not yet have a firm release date for the program, we do have enough additional information about the event to keep you entertained in the meanwhile.
To begin with, we’ve compiled all of the information that’s currently available about the upcoming season, including the cast members who will return as well as new characters (including those from the mysterious Sparrow Academy). We’ve also made our best guesses about when we’ll see a trailer and when the season will premiere. Read on for more information.
Netflix has also released the names of all ten episodes, as well as some remarks from the show’s actors, Tom Hopper and Robert Sheehan, regarding what we may be able to anticipate from the series in general. To learn more about The Umbrella Academy season 3 and what we know thus far, continue reading this article.
Who Will Be a Part of the Umbrella Academy Season 3 Cast?
Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min have all stated that they will repeat their roles as the Hargreeves brothers, with Ritu Arya reprising her part as Lila in the next film. Colm Feore reprises his role as Reginald Hargreeves, as well.
The “Sparrow Academy,” a new bunch of superheroes founded by a still-alive Reginald in an alternate reality in which our heroes now reside, was introduced in the Umbrella Academy season 2 finale. Justin H. Min will reprise his role as Ben in an alternative dimension, and a slew of new characters will join the cast.
Marcus, the family’s leader who keeps the family in line, will be played by Justin Cornwell, while Fei, a lonely misanthrope who is typically the sharpest person in the room, will be played by Britne Oldford. Alphonso is played by Jake Epstein, who has a caustic sense of humor, while Sloane is played by Genesis Rodriguez, who is a romantic dreamer. A loner with nothing to say, Jayme will be played by Cazzie David, who will be joined by Alphonso as her sole buddy.
According to Netflix, the seventh Sparrow, Christopher, will be portrayed by Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube, who is known for his role in the film The Hunger Games. Christopher is loyal and trustworthy, and he has the ability to render a room icy cold and produce paralyzing terror — as well as a huge, telekinetic cube, which is vital. We finally have an explanation for why there was a gigantic cube at the conclusion of season 2, even if it raises more problems than it answers.
There have also been character posters published for the Sparrows, and you can see them in the gallery below.
The complex also reported that Euphoria actor Javon Walton would have a role in The Umbrella Academy season 3, however, he did not provide any other information on the project.
The Trailer for Season 3 of the Umbrella Academy Has Yet to Be Released, So When Can We Expect One?
Season 2’s teaser was released a little more than three weeks before the season premiered, so it seems that we will have to wait a little longer for our first look at season 3. However, since The Umbrella Academy season 2 was one of Netflix’s most popular programs, the streaming service may release a teaser trailer in the near future to keep the enthusiasm going.
The Plot of the Umbrella Academy Season 3
As of right now, there is no official word on what will happen in the third season of the series, although there are some rumors that it may center on a mystery hotel called Oblivion. In addition, it is predicted that Min’s character Ben, also known as Number Six, would go rogue during this season.
The creator of The Umbrella Academy, Steve Blackman, has said that the series’ next installment is likely to offer a slew of shocks. ‘There are some really huge shocks in store for the family this year, and there are some fantastic changes that people will love to kind of dive into, and there is a lot of development for the family this year in a manner that people are just not expecting.’
What Are the Episode Names for the Umbrella Academy Season 3?
The following are the names of each episode of season 3 as announced by showrunner Steve Blackman on Day 2 of Netflix Geeked Week in June:

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Premiere Date Has Been Announced
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is set to premiere in 2022, while we don’t have any more details at this time. However, we can make educated guesses.
Season 2 was announced in April of this year, and it will begin streaming in July of the following year. Using the same timeframe would result in The Umbrella Academy season 3 premiering in February 2022, which is very certainly not going to happen.
When it comes to a particular release date, the season 2 release date was confirmed in May 2020, which is just two months before the season’s debut. Again, assuming we stick to the same timeframe, it is possible that we may hear about a release date announcement very soon.
What Questions Do You Think Need to Be Answered in the Umbrella Academy Season 3?
That means that there are a lot of questions that viewers need to know about the mythology of The Umbrella Academy.
Fans of the TV show still don’t know why 43 babies were born on October 1, 1989, to mothers who weren’t pregnant at the start of the day, even though they were. How did most of those kids turn out? They show how this happened in the first pages of their comic book, Apocalypse Suite, but we won’t tell you about it just yet.
That number is called “The Umbrella and Sparrow Academy.” In the comics, 13 of them are called that. However, the show also talked about Lila as a possible 14th character who we haven’t seen in the comic books yet.
That means there are still 29 or 30 people who haven’t been shown. That’s a big problem now, of course. The TV show could move ahead, like Game of Thrones did and show people or stories that might show up on comics in the future. In either case, we might see more superheroes (or bad guys) emerge as part of season 3.
That’s not all: There’s also a lot of debate about season 2. Since he took off his human mask, we now know that Sir Reginald Hargreeves is an alien, and we don’t know why. Again, the comics show who he is in the first few pages of Apocalypse Suite, and this time we can tell because of the ending.
During the comics, Sir Reginald is a well-known scientist, entrepreneur, inventor, and Olympic gold medalist who has worked all over the world. There’s also a space alien. His true form hasn’t been shown in the comic books yet, but it’s a sure thing that the TV show will show that at this point.
Harlan, Missy’s son who has telekinetic powers at the end of season 2, is also a big question. It’s possible that he could be a friend or a foe to The Sparrow Academy and The Umbrella Academy. The third season of the show will not have him.
Also, we don’t know who the bad guy is for season 3. In season 2, The Handler was supposed to have died. Now that the Commission has a new, more friendly leader, it’s unlikely that they’ll be bad again.
What if season 3 starts introducing the comics’ bad guys into the TV show? Sparrow Academy may be facing a bigger threat than The Umbrella Academy does, excluding two apocalypses. This means that the Sparrows would need the help of the Umbrella Academy to deal with the bigger threat.
I don’t know. It could be any of the bad guys in the comics. Even a fellow superhero like The Scientific Man would be tough for the teams to deal with. Season 3 would be better if there was a storyline that made them have to work together.
Will There Be a Season 4 of the Umbrella Academy?
It is still unknown whether or not The Umbrella Academy season 3 will be the last season. Netflix has not yet made an official declaration about its future intentions.
