The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is officially coming back to Netflix with much anticipation! Season 3 details have been scarce, but the official title for the premiere sets up a peculiar meetup.
Based on the popular comics by Gerard Way, the offbeat superhero show has been a stand-out show for Netflix. Along with Amazon Prime’s smash hit The Boys, it has been taking superhero dramas to strange places they have never been before. Following the dysfunctional Hargraves family, each member has specific superpowers, which they use to save the world from the apocalypse. In season one, the siblings stop Vanya from destroying the world. In season 2, the Hargraves are trapped in 1960’s Dallas and must find a way to return to the present.
The final scene of season 2 left us on a humongous cliffhanger. After time-traveling back to the present, things have changed. Instead of simply arriving home to how they left it, they are greeted by their once-deceased father and his children in the Sparrow Academy. Among his children is their dead brother and former member of the Umbrella Academy, Ben. It appears as if the timeline has changed completely this time. How will they fix it this time?
In season 3, the arrival of the Sparrow Academy will likely be central to the plot. And if you weren’t convinced how important they are, maybe the title of the premiere, “Meet the Family,” will make you think otherwise. Showrunner Steve Blackman revealed the premiere title on his Instagram and confirmed by the official Netflix Twitter account:

The image also confirms that the premiere will be co-written by Blackman and consulting producer Michelle Lovretta.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 does not have a release date yet. However, production is set to commence in February. Watch this space. In the meantime, both seasons one and two are currently available for streaming on Netflix.
