I heard a rumor Netflix just renewed The Umbrella Academy for season 3.
A ten episode third season will begin production in February 2021 in Toronto.
Based on the comic book series of the same name, the time-bending-science-fiction-comedy-drama-romance follows the Hargreeves, a highly dysfunctional family of seven super-powered adoptees who are drawn back to their childhood home in order to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death, and prevent an impending apocalypse from destroying the world.
In season 2, Five used his powers to escape Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse. However, with his siblings now scattered over time and distance in 1960’s Dallas Texas, Five discovered that a new and equally catastrophic apocalypse now threatened humanity, with his siblings once again at the epicenter of the chaos. Pursued by a trio of relentless Swedish assassins, the Hargreeves fought to stay alive long enough to uncover The Commission’s deadly role in events.
The finale saw the Hargreeves finally making it back home, only to discover themselves in an alternate universe in which the Umbrella Academy never existed, and their father (now very much alive) as acting head of The Sparrow Academy.
The Umbrella Academy’s ensemble cast includes Ellen Page as Vanya (Seven), Tom Hopper as Luther (One), David Castañeda as Diego (Two), Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison (Three), Robert Sheehan as Klaus (Four), Aidan Gallagher as Five, and Justin H. Min as Ben (Six).
The Umbrella Academy was created for Netflix by Steve Blackman and developed by Jeremy Slater. It is produced by Borderline Entertainment, Dark Horse Entertainment, and Universal Cable Productions.
