‘The Umbrella Academy’ season 3: Will the Hargreeves and Sparrows unite?

The Umbrella Academy season three is slated to premiere on Netflix on June 22nd, 2022. With only a few months left for fans to enjoy the return of the dysfunctional Hargreeves family, Netflix is yet to release a full-length trailer which will probably be released a few weeks before the release of the series. 

After giving the fans an insight into what the Sparrow Academy looks like via a set of character posters, Netflix has released a detailed description, besides a teaser from the upcoming season. 

The second season ended on a cliffhanger, where the Umbrella Academy went back home to celebrate their apparent win. However, they soon find out that they have created an entirely different timeline that introduces the members of the Sparrow Academy in the form of silhouettes. 

The new teaser shows the Sparrows and the Hargreeves getting into some kind of a fight where the Sparrow Academy seem quite hostile towards the Umbrella Academy while being led by formerly-dead Ben. 

While the Sparrows are seemingly the antagonists in the teaser, the Umbrella Academy might enlist their help to fight against the inevitable disaster. 

According to the synopsis, the “Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong.”

The description further hints at time travel and other conflicts. “Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?”

Created in 2019 by Steve Blackman and Jeremy Slater, this top-rated show with a talented ensemble is based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba’s eponymous graphic novel. While the show has been relatively faithful in the last two seasons, Blackman has reportedly strayed away from the source and included new elements into the narrative. 

The older cast, including Elliot Page, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Robert Sheehan, David Castaneda, Tom Hopper, Colm Feore and more, shall make a return. 

New faces like Justin Cornwell, Britney Oldford, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, Javon Walton and Jake Epstein shall join them. The new characters’ names include Marcus, Fei, Alphonso, Solane and Jayme.  

The Umbrella Academy has been renewed for a fourth season. Read everything we know about the upcoming third season here
