The Umbrella Academy Season 3: Netflix Confirms Renewal (Finally!)

The Umbrella Academy on Netflix is easily one of the most entertaining shows out there right now. The adaptation of the comic book story, which focuses heavily on time travel, is entertaining, fun, and completely interactive. Follow the recent release of season two, the future of the show has been in the air in the last few months since the finale. Netflix officially announced the renewal of The Umbrella Academy season 3, along with when the show will begin filming.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3

The Umbrella Academy is a lot like X-Men, but with a lot more chaos. Children born on the same day, trained to be superheroes, with their respective childhood traumas turning them into extraordinarily special individuals. After growing up, they separate from each other, but have to unite as a family again in order to save the planet from ultimate destruction. This is essentially the broader plot of The Umbrella Academy.

Season 1 exposed viewers to these protagonists and their past. The first season concludes with the group traveling into the past in order to escape a catastrophe in the future. Yet season 2 found them dispersed across the 60s, trying to make their way back to each other again. Season 2 had finished in a cliffhanger, as the world they had returned to was somewhat different.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3: How Will the Storyline Continue

The Umbrella Academy is very much a cliffhanger-dependent show, yet authors will still confuse us and carry the plot to really surprising locations. You can never really anticipate something happening in The Umbrella Academy, which is one of the reasons why the show is so enjoyable. The cliffhanger of season 2 returned the protagonists to their house in the present world, having escaped the disaster but it wasn’t over.

Second, their dad, who died at the beginning of season 1, was unexpectedly alive and waiting for them. More specifically, the house appears to have been inhabited by another superhero team, The Sparrow Academy, headed by their dead brother. And interestingly enough, he didn’t seem to know who they were at all.

The effect of the cliffhanger remains so powerful that even months after season 2, my head hurts. The family communicates with their father in the 1960s, so that they might quickly alter the situation regardless of what they’ve disclosed to him in the past. Ben, their dead ghost-brother who is now living may also be a reaction of the interaction. Yet everything else is a shock. Perhaps their dad deliberately adopted other children, recognizing how dysfunctional they turn out to be after having seen them in the 1960s? Yet Sparrow’s hints are still hard to miss.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3: Plot Left Wide Open at End of Season 2

At the end of season 2, a young man with whom Vanya worked with appeared to have some of his abilities already inside him. The child, who would have been completely grown in the present, was last seen levitating a wooden Sparrow. The Sparrow, or bird representation, is indeed an easter egg scattered throughout season 2. That’s why the young boy has everything to do with this altered moment. Or that this current family comprises of any of the other children born on the same day as the members of The Umbrella Academy. I suppose only time can tell, and before then, i’m only going to have to live with painkillers.

According to Deadline, the announcement of season 3 of The Umbrella Academy also arrives with reports that the show will commence shooting in Toronto in February 2021. No formal statement on the release date of season 3.

Season 1 and 2 of The Umbrella Academy is now streaming on Netflix.
