While most of the internet celebrated Elliot Page’s transition, a lot of fans were left asking what would happen to their character Vanya Hargreeves in Umbrella Academy. As it turns out, Vanya will be making a transition as well.
As shared by Page himself, here’s a first look at Viktor Hargreeves in the third season of Umbrella Academy:

For now, fans have multiple questions about the transition, seeing that the last time we saw Viktor, he was still the CIS Vanya in the last season of Umbrella Academy. While some think that they should write this into the plot of the series, some are hoping that it will just be a low-key change, so as not to add so much drama to their transition.
to people being like, "omg, how are they going to introduce this?" I see it going down like this:
Viktor: Viktor, actually.
Klaus: Oh, ok.
And then they move on. It doesn't have to be such a wild move. The Hargreeves are superheros w/powers. Like-

Seeing that the first looks at the show feature pre-transition Vanya, there will likely be a written transition for the character in the series. Of all the weird things that the Hargreeves kids go through, transitioning should be very huge for one character, and I think it’s worth addressing when it comes to the story.
For now, we don’t have an overall breakdown of the plot of Season 3, but we do know that the Hargreeves have found themselves in an alternate reality, face-to-face with the Sparrow Academy. We don’t know how the Sparrows are messed up yet, but I’m expecting some more character-driven drama with a dash of comic book superpowers.
The third season of Umbrella Academy comes to Netflix on June 22.
