The latest instalment of the marvellous and magnificent The Umbrella Academy is set to arrive on Netflix’s streaming shelves in a matter of hours. It has been an inspiring series for many reasons and season three promises to be even more spectacular.
The third season will pick up right from where the second season ended on a cliffhanger where the Hrgreeves return to their home in the present, convinced to have prevented the apocalypse and fixed the timeline, only to find how they have created an entryway for their villainous alter-egos, the Sparrow Academy to enter for a brutal face-off.
Created by Steve Blackman and based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s graphic novel, the show will include Elliot Page, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Robert Sheehan, David Castaneda, Tom Hopper, Colm Feore and more among the returning cast members.
The new faces include Britney Oldford, Jake Epstein, Justin Cornwell, Cazzie David, Genesis Rodriguez etc. The trailer begins with the Sparrows meeting the Hargreeves before the latter realises that they have created a Kugleblitz, which means “essentially we’re [the Hargreeves] screwed!”
The Sparrows are apparently “dickheads who can fight.” With only a few days to prevent an epic disaster from swallowing them in and being replaced by “a bunch of blobs and cubes and birds and shit”. Now, we get to see all of these actors in some rare behind-the-scenes footage, shared by Netflix.
