The Umbrella Academy renewed for season 4

Over the course of the first two seasons, The Umbrella Academy has firmly established itself as somewhat of a Netflix staple. With the third season well underway, it looks like a fourth will follow shortly after. 

The show has ticked both boxes for the streaming giant so far, receiving critical acclaim and bringing in around 43 million viewers each season. 

Production on season three began earlier this year following pandemic induced delays, but the show’s stars promise big things, nevertheless. As Tom Hopper told fans via Collider back in April, “I just want them to know that if they’ve loved the first two seasons, we’ve upped the ante, big time – and if the fun factor is upped, I think the wow factor is upped. And I think they’re just going to fall in love with these characters even more.”

According to The Vulcan Reporter it is now believed that a fourth season will also be in the works soon enough with lead Umbrella Academy showrunner, Steve Blackman, signing an eight-figure deal with Netflix lasy year. 

The success of the show has also led to substantial pay rises for the lead stars with David Castaneda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Justin H. Min now reportedly earning more than $200,000 per episode.

As of yet, no confirmation has been announced, but all the signs suggest that The Umbrella Academy and the Hargreeves clan are here to stay. Season three is expected to make it on to screens earlier next year based on filming schedules.
