The hit Netflix show aired its second season in the month of July 2020. This season worked in appealing the audience and the critics much more than season 1. And has been ruling on nearly every screen globally, since its release.
The season brought the dysfunctional family back together along with an impending apocalypse. The action packed season left us even more hungry for a third season as it left on a nail-biting cliffhanger.
The season ended with Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Five (Aidan Gallagher), and Vanya (Ellen Page) finally returning to their own time … or so they thought. They soon found themselves staring at Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), along with their supposedly dead Ben (Justin H. Min), and a completely new team called the Sparrow Academy. As the siblings realized they’ve changed history. Only stunned profanities are uttered by the group. This is a reaction among the viewers as well, as we would have to wait for season 3 to find out what happened!
That as a background, we surely hope that there is a season 3! Here is all we know about the cast, release date and plot of the much awaited Season 3!
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date?
A third season of The Umbrella Academy is yet to be confirmed. It may feel like a virtual apocalypse for us now, but not to worry, our secret intuition is positive that adventure isn’t over for the Hargreeves kids! Netflix tends to look at the viewership data of its releases before announcing an additional season, and since Season 2’s late July release, the show has consistently been one of the most watched series on the streamer, so another installment is likely in the bag. It’s just a matter of when we’ll get the official word. It is guessed that we should expect season 3 around the beginning of 2022, if this ongoing pandemic doesn’t affect production much.
As such, it’s virtually guaranteed that Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Ellen Page will return to reprise the respective roles of Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Five, Ben, and Vanya. Colm Feore will likely also return as their abusive adopted father Sir Reginald, and the show’s new timeline means that his trusty ape assistant Pogo (Ken Hall/Adam Godley) might also make an appearance, even though he technically died in season 1.
The first season of The Umbrella Academy took its plot from the first series of the Dark Horse comic – The Apocalypse Suite. And season 2 adapted the second series, Dallas. Knowing this, there’s a chance that season 3 will take its plot from the third series, Hotel Oblivion, or even, Sparrow Academy. Regardless, season 2 revealed that we’ll definitely see more of the mysterious Sparrow Academy. The Sparrow Academy has not featured much in the comics yet. we do know that they appear to be a more functional version of their Umbrella counterparts.
