The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date, cast and more

The Umbrella Academy Season 3

The umbrella academy is a Netflix Original series in the Superhero Comedy-Drama genre based on the same name’s comics.

Its comics version is written & illustrated by Gerard Way & Gabriel Bá, whereas Steve Blackman creates its television series.

By the end of July 2020, The Umbrella Academy concluded with a phenomenal second season.

Now, the question comes,

When The Umbrella Academy season 3 will release on Netflix?

What will the new season be all about?

To get the answer to all these questions, read this complete post:

The Umbrella Academy Renewal Status?

Even though Netflix hasn’t renewed The Umbrella Academy officially for season 3 but since the release of season 2, they’ve been giving hints here and there.

And now, ProductionWeekly has come up with an update. In their October 22nd weekly issue, they’ve listed 220 shows that will soon begin production. The 51 pages issue also includes The Umbrella Academy Season 3.

According to their weekly edition, its production is set to begin on August 1st, 2021 & wraps up by the end of August 2021.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date

If ProductionWeekly’s estimate is true, you can expect next The Umbrella Academy Season to release sometime by the end of 2021 or early 2020.

And also, The Umbrella Academy Season 2 released 17 months after season 1. If there’s no further delay, the release might even postpone to the end of 2020.

All in all, it’ll be a long wait for all the fans.

Who’s in the cast of Umbrella Academy season 3?

Though The Umbrella Academy season 2 had a significantly high body count, the Hargreeves siblings actually managed to come out more alive than usual, thanks to the ghostly Ben’s return to the land of the living as an altered timeline version of himself. As such, it’s virtually guaranteed that Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Ellen Page will return to reprise the respective roles of Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Five, Ben, and Vanya. Colm Feore will likely also return as their abusive adopted father Sir Reginald, and the show’s new timeline means that his trusty ape assistant Pogo (Ken Hall/Adam Godley) might also make an appearance, even though he technically died in season 1.

As for the non-Hargreeves cast, the show’s timey-wimey nature makes it abundantly clear that almost anyone can potentially return. The most likely familiar face to appear in season 3 would probably be the Academy’s fellow October 1, 1989 super-baby Lila (Ritu Arya), who went rogue in the season 2 finale. The revelation of his superpowers mean that Harlan (Justin Paul Kelly) could very well return in one way or another, which also bodes well for the chances of seeing his mother, Sissy (Marin Ireland), again. On a more speculative note, The Handler’s (Kate Walsh) story arc seems to be decidedly over, but then again, this wouldn’t be the first time she’s survived a supposedly fatal gunshot injury. Who knows? Maybe even Hazel (Cameron Britton) and Cha-Cha (Mary J. Blige) are alive and operational in the new timeline. 

As always, season 3 will also presumably bring us several new, interesting characters, so expect plenty of exciting news on The Umbrella Academy casting front.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Theories

Here are the 3 fan theories for the next Umbrella Academy Season to keep you hooked to what might come next.

Pogo is alive

If you’ve watched the umbrella academy season1, you would be aware that Pogo died by the end of season 1. Earlier, there was speculation of his comeback in the second season.

However, that didn’t happen.

Now, in the 3rd season, he has to be alive? Don’t you wanna see a more harsh and aggressive pogo. If Pogo is revealed to be alive, I would love to see him as a member of the Sparrow Academy. That would like a cherry on top.

Possibility of Infinite Universes

Last but not least is the most exciting theory from a fan ultimatecaissie. The user suggests the Commission’s infinite switchboard hints to an infinite parallel universe.

If that’s true, then the Umbrella Academy never stopped the apocalypse. However, instead, they created a new timeline.

What do you think of this fan theory? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section given below.

Harlan is revealed as a Sparrow Academy member.

In the final moments of the umbrella academy season 2, Harlan was seen floating a wooden toy in the air.

Many fans on Reddit suspect it to be something like a sparrow.

This further led people to theorize, Harlan has become a member of the Sparrow Academy. What do you think? Will this be possible? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.

Final Words

Netflix has yet to announce the renewal of The Umbrella Academy season 3. However, looking at its worldwide popularity, you can easily assume it’ll be renewed for the 3rd season.

Additionally, multiple sources have confirmed its production schedule to begin in early 2021.
