The Hargreeves siblings are returning to the future with two down and one to go (and your screens).
The third installment of Netflix’s dysfunctional superhero family is on the way. Two seasons of The Umbrella Academy have already wowed fans of the wacky superhero show. Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy has arrived.
The Umbrella Academy is based on the breakthrough graphic novel series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá and tells the narrative of a family of superheroes who are drawn together by a funeral and the danger of the apocalypse. Superpowers, time travel, a talking goldfish, and a lot of odd and wonderful twists and turns are all part of the series.
New characters and settings will be introduced in Season 3. It’s a fresh timeline with a lot of promise and a lot of fantastic secrets yet to be revealed. Wait until you encounter the Sparrow Academy if you thought the Umbrella Academy was strange.

Elliot Page confirmed the start of filming with a set photo titled “Omg we’re back again” on Instagram. Other cast members have also shared images from the set, however, they haven’t given any details about the project.
In April 2021, Tom Hopper told Collider that there is still “a long way to go.”
“Well, because of the COVID protocols, we’ll have shorter days, which means the real length of the shoot will be much longer,” he explained. He also disclosed that filming was supposed to start a little early. On August 28, 2021, filming came to a close.

When Is the Umbrella Academy Season 3’s Release Date?
Netflix has announced that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will premiere on June 22, 2022.
Who Is in The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Cast?
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will feature all of the show’s key cast members. Luther is played by Tom Hopper, Diego is played by David Castaeda, Allison is played by Emmy Raver-Lampman, Klaus is played by Robert Sheehan, Five is played by Aidan Gallagher, and Viktor is played by Elliot Page. Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min) will also return, but he will be a very different character than the one we are familiar with.
Sir Reginald Hargreeves, Lila Pitts, Pogo, and Grace Hargreeves / Mom will be played by Colm Feore, Ritu Arya, Adam Godley, and Jordan Claire Robbins, respectively. This, however, has yet to be formally confirmed.
Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, and an Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube – whatever that is – are among the new cast members joining the show. All of the newcomers are members of the Sparrow Academy, which looks to be a parallel universe version of our heroes. Javon Walton (Euphoria) has also been cast in an unspecified part, according to reports.
Who Are the New Characters in The Umbrella Academy Season 3?
The Umbrella Academy has altered the timeline as a result of its time-traveling experience in Season 2. The good news is that the apocalypse has not yet occurred (yet). The bad news is that Reginald Hargreeves adopted a new group of children, dubbed the Sparrow Academy.
The Sparrows are the season’s biggest unsolved mystery. The show’s premise starts with the birth of 43 superpowered children, of whom we’ve only seen a few. The Sparrows are likely to be among the other children.
We’ll learn more about these enigmatic new individuals as the season progresses, but Netflix has already provided some information about them.
Marcus / Sparrow Number One, who looks to be the leader of the Sparrow Academy, is played by Justin Cornwell. “A lovely, sculpted, colossus,” according to his description. Marcus maintains the family together by being honest, moral, and demanding. He is as brilliant as he is strong, graceful but lethal, calculated but kind. Marcus is self-disciplined, logical, and self-assured. He exudes confidence and authority without ever raising his voice.”
Fei / Sparrow Number Three, played by Britne Oldford, is a clever and caustic character in dire need of love. “Fei perceives the world in a unique manner,” her description states. She appears to be a misanthrope who would prefer to be alone than spend time with you. Fei, on the other hand, wishes she had a friend. Fei is usually the smartest guy in the room, and he is willing to work things out. If you cross Fei, however, there will be no turning back since she will not stop until the work is completed.”
Alphonso / Sparrow Number Four is played by Jake Epstein, who looks a lot like Diego. After they get past the awkwardness of the alternate timeline, they might wind up bonding.
His description reads, “Years of crime-fighting have scarred his face and body with countless visual memories of his conflicts.” “Alphonso compensates by having a caustic and scathing sense of humor. A delicious pizza and a six-pack of beer are the only things he enjoys more than verbally beating anyone who gets in his way.”

The clip, set to the Sweet classic “Ballroom Blitz,” depicts the Hargreeves kids facing off against another team of heroes known as the Sparrow Academy.
