Well, The Umbrella Academy has found its release always adjusting, but it seems like season 3 is returning to the schedule of the first season. Furthermore, the season remains quite hyped after what went down in Season 2. The time travel phenomenons which were supposed to reset everything in the modern-day, mess things up further. Same for The Umbrella Academy Season 3. Plus, there are a lot of new faces making their presence felt. So here we are breaking down everything we know about The Umbrella Academy Season 3, from its plot and cast to its release date.
We would start off by retelling what went down in the second season of The Umbrella Academy. Did they bury the hatchet with The Handler? If they did and managed to come back to their time, what did they mess up? The mess up we are talking about is probably the reason we may have a new family and new faces making their appearance. Who are they? The Mystery behind Reginald Hargreeves and what does this mean for the universe of The Umbrella Academy? Let’s find out.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 – What Would It Be About?
So, the third season of The Umbrella Academy teases to be the aftermath of the time travel of season 2. When our Hargreeves group returned to 2019 in Season 2, a number of things had changed. So the gang may start getting accustomed to it or may need to go back and change a few things. The Handler is dead for now, and her daughter Lila escaped, and season 3 might answer where she ends up. Either on the good side or bad one or follows her own life. Now let’s discuss the biggest topic around. The mess introduced us again to Reginald, but this time with a new family. We are talking about The Sparrow Academy from Season 2 Finale.
A new band of super family is making its presence felt in the show. We saw them at the end of Season 2, and the third season would be an exploration of them forming up. Their past and everything we need to know about them. The first episode of The Umbrella Academy’s title is “Meet the Family” and may hint at the same new team. Probably the premiere episode could establish them and their story as they may have bigger agenda in the show moving on. Now how would the Hargreeves react to this new superfamily that challenges their own powers is something to look at.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Cast
With The Sparrow Academy joining, the cast of the show is definitely increasing its names. We are definitely having the Hargreeves back with Elliot Page returning as Vanya Hargreeves, Tom Hopper as Luther Hargreeves, David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison Hargreeves, Robert Sheehan as Klaus Hargreeves, Aidan Gallagher as Five Hargreeves, and Justin H. Min as Ben Hargreeves, The cast also sees Colm Feore returning as Sir Reginald Hargreeves.
Apart from the returning names, The Sparrow Academy will be the one to look out for. A new team means a new cast. So the characters of this new family is led by Justin Cornwell as Marcus Hargreeves, Britne Oldford as Fei Hargreeves, Jake Epstein as Alphonso Hargreeves, Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane Hargreeves, and Cazzie David as Jayme Hargreeves.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is best expected to release somewhere in 2022 on Netflix. The third season will consist of a total of 10 episodes. Netflix will release all of them together on its OTT space. Although a release in 2021 was considered initially but looking at the filming and production schedule, it seems impossible now. Netflix confirmed the show in November of 2020, and the shoot began in filming began in February of 2021.
Midway through April, Tom Hopper stated there is a lot to cover up. The most latest update from Elliot Page’s recently shared Instagram story reveals that the show is on the final week of its shoot. So we are expecting the post-production to finish by the end of this year. So an early 2022 release fits the bill. The show could also follow its first season release and come around in February of 2022.
