The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date & Time, Trailer, Episodes, Cast, Review, etc.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 – out this week on Netflix – should be a lot more twisted this time around, as it introduces us to The Sparrow Academy, a band from an alternate timeline who hate the Hargreeves siblings. The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is also expected to be bolder than its previous U/A rated installments, as it comes with an A rating. While most of the plot details are – unsurprisingly – under wraps, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will likely feature several twists that could add a new dimension to everything we’ve seen so far.
The Umbrella Academy Showrunner Steve Blackman alluded to this a while ago when he told Digital Spy, “Not only are these people saying they’re Sparrow Academy, but (Reginald) Hargreeves is still alive – and he’s not. Neither should it be. We love putting out Easter eggs for our fans, and there are more Easter eggs than ever this year.

Elliot Page returns to The Umbrella Academy season 3 stars fan-favorite Vanya Hargreeves — a cisgender woman — who will come out as transgender and transition to Viktor this season. It’ll be interesting to see if the creators are able to do this aspect justice, given that the actor did the same in real life in 2020.
Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Robert Sheehan and Aidan Gallagher reprise their respective roles as siblings Luther, Diego, Alison, Klaus and Five. Justin H. Min returns as Ben Hargreeves summoning the tentacles, but there’s a twist as he plays Sparrow Academy’s version of Ben, which is completely different than what we’ve seen in previous seasons.
Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez and Cazzie Davidare join The Umbrella Academy season 3 portrayed the Sparrows Marcus Hargreeves/Sparrow Number 1, Fei Hargreeves/Sparrow Number 3, Alphonso Hargreeves/Sparrow Number Four, Sloane Hargreeves/Sparrow Number Five, and Jayme Hargreeves/Sparrow Number Six, respectively.

Javon Walton (Euphoria) has been cast in an undisclosed role. Expect at least some of these new additions to add a new layer to, in Blackman’s words, “definitely shake things up” with their actions.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 recap
Here is the official synopsis of The Umbrella Academy season 3 via Netflix:
After putting an end to the 1963 apocalypse, the Umbrella Academy returns to the present, convinced that they have prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this cursed timeline once and for all.
But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t quite (okay, not at all) the way they left them. Enter Sparrow Academy. Clever, elegant, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately confront the Umbrellas in a violent confrontation that turns out to be the least of everyone’s worries.
Navigating their own unique challenges, losses and surprises – and facing an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc on the universe (something they may have caused) – now all that they have to do is convince dad’s new and possibly better family to help them right what their arrival has done wrong.
Will they find their way back to their pre-apocalyptic life? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a glitch in the timeline?
The Umbrella Academy season 3 trailer
The first – and so far the only – trailer for The Umbrella Academy Season 3 was released over a month ago on May 19.
It was an action-packed affair that highlighted the chaos that erupts when the Hargreeves siblings find themselves in an alternate timeline where the titular organization simply doesn’t exist. This reality, instead, is home to the previously mentioned Sparrows who hate our heroes.
The Umbrella Academy The Season 3 trailer, however, raised more questions than it answered because it didn’t explain what landed the Hargreeves in an alternate timeline.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 review
The first reviews of The Umbrella Academy season 3 is out. Rotten Tomatoes’ critic consensus states that Season 3 retains “all the gonzo creativity” we’ve seen in its predecessors.
The Umbrella Academy season 4?
There’s no official word from Netflix or Blackman on The Umbrella Academy season 4, but it is said to be in the works.
Either way, we’ll probably have a better idea of what the future holds for this series after watching the final season, especially since the second season ended on a cliffhanger, setting the stage for the final one.
