Umbrella Academy Season 3: Release Date
Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on 22nd June 2022. The upcoming season will have 10 episodes in total and luckily we have their titles as well! They are:
- ‘Meet the Family’
- ‘The World’s Biggest Ball of Twine
- “Pocket Full of Lightning’
- ‘Kindest Cut’
- ‘Auf Wiedersehen’
- ‘Wedding at The End of The World’
- ‘Six Bells’
The filming for it began in February of 2021. The filming got confirmed when the cast members posted pictures from the set showing their excitement for the third season. In fact, the filming was supposed to start much earlier but Covid 19 and the lockdown protocols got in the way.
All of the core cast members are returning in the 3rd season. So, expect these faces to make an integral part of the threequel:
- Tom Hopper as Luther
- David Castañeda as Diego
- Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison
- Robert Sheehan as Klaus
- Aidan Gallagher as Five
- Elliot Page as Vanya
Ben Hargreeves unfortunately died completely, trying to save Klaus. However in the final scenes it was revealed that he makes a comeback but this time as a member of a completely new family. So, yes Ben will be there in the third season but his role will be quite different and almost as a new character. The new Sparrow Academy will feature new members and those include:
- Justin Cornwell
- Britne Oldford
- Jake Epstein
- Genesis Rodriguez
- Cazzie David
Ashtray from Euphoria has also starred in The Umbrella Academy Season 3! Walton confirmed it shortly after the finale of Euphoria went on air. There have been a number of changes in the main plot due to the different timeline. So, yes the characters might behave differently. They successfully travel back in time saving the world from an apocalypse but when they get back to their home they realize that Reginald has adopted a completely new set of children.
These “Sparrows” are a few of the children who have superpowers exactly like Umbrella Academy. We’ll get to explore them in detail once the 3rd season goes on air but Netflix has already revealed basic information regarding them:
- Justin Cornwell as Marcus will be the head of the Academy. He is quite composed and organized and asserts his dominance without even trying. To put it precisely, he is a born leader.
- Britne Oldford as Fei is Sparrow Number Three. She looks at the world in a very different way. She is nice to those who are nice towards her but those who cross her are destined to doom.
- Jake Epstein as Alphonso is Sparrow Number Four. he is very similar to Diego and we can already see him being good friends with him.
- Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane is Sparrow Number Five. She is the most sophisticated one out of all of the Sparrows. She wants to live her life in her own way but unfortunately she can’t because that will lead to conflicts within her family which she wants to avoid the most.
- Cazzie David as Jayme is Sparrow Number Five. She only has one friend, Alphonso. And Jayme is the toughest one!
- The 6th Sparrow is Christopher. He is the most unusual one because he’s not a human. So, we’ll get to know more about him once the show goes on air.
And of course Ben is the third Sparrow. The fandom was relieved to see I was a part of the third season.
Umbrella Academy Season 3: Plot
The Sparrow Academy will make the core of the plot. The story will revolve around them and how they get connected to our heroes. Another dangling storyline was about Reginald Hargreeves. In the second season, it was revealed that he was secretly an alien! So, does that mean he never died? And all that is happening right now is because of him? Well yes this can be one way of interpreting the situation.
The final episode is named after the hotel where everything went downhill in the second season. So, it looks by the time 3rd season will end we’ll know most of the back story. Now the Umbrella Academy is a new timeline where their father has adopted other kids. So, does this mean they are irrelevant now? We can’t say much about this yet. In case you want to know more about the plot of the third season make sure to read the official synopsis issued by Netflix.
The official trailer for The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is now out on YouTube for streaming! It gives a slight idea of the new personalities which will get featured in the upcoming season.
