The Umbrella Academy season three is set to be an exciting ride, and it will begin in just a few weeks. Netflix has just revealed the release date of the third installment. Showrunner Steve Blackman had previously said that it would be a “wilder, bigger and zanier” season. Elliot Page revealed that the new installment will feature a familiar character with a new name.
With several new faces joining the cast as rival Sparrows, the cast is definitely bigger. An Euphoria actress is also joining the cast in an undisclosed capacity. They may all be at Netflix Geeked week 2022. This is just a teaser of UA3 news.
After spending an entire season in 1960s-era Dallas, the action will resume. They defeated the Handler and found a way to get back to their normal lives. They found out that the status quo was not what they had expected.
They discovered that Hargreeves had adopted other children than Ben. This was in an alternate present. Now Ben is part of a completely different Hargreeves super-group, the Sparrows.
Blackman stated that there are “some very big surprises” with the family this Christmas. “There are many amazing changes that people will enjoy digging into.”
He said, “It is a wild season.”
This is what we know about The Umbrella Academy season 3.

Fans were naturally stunned by the news of its return. One Twitter user said, “Finally. It feels like I’ve waited all my life. Gawd!”
Although filming for season 3 was completed a while back, it is not surprising that so much time has passed since then.
Everett Burrell, the visual effects supervisor, told Gold Derby it took months to prepare the apocalyptic vision featured in season 2. He added: “Many of the feature-film effects tools have now trickled into the TV industry so that we can get bigger and more epic looking stuff… Every season, we must use the best and most up-to-date tools we can find.

Javon Walton, who plays Ashtray in Euphoria, is the latest addition to The Umbrella Academy’s cast. He told Complex the news but didn’t give any details about his role.

Netflix also revealed the cast members of the Sparrows in Umbrella academy season 3 along with their character descriptions.
We already know one: Justin H. Min as Ben. However, this Ben (Sparrow 2) is described as “scheming tactical and vicious, determined gain his leadership status.”
His Sparrow siblings include:
- Justin Cornwell plays Marcus (Sparrow #1), a natural leader who exudes confidence and keeps his family together. He is charming and as handsome as he is muscular and colossal.
- Britne Olford is Fei (Sparrow #3), who views the world in an unusual way. She is usually the smartest person in a room, and she’s willing to negotiate. But once she crosses your path, there’s no going back.
- Jake Epstein portrays Alphonso (Sparrow #4) is a scarred crime fighter with a sharp and funny sense of humor. He enjoys verbally belittling his enemies almost as much as he loves a good pizza or a six-pack beer.

- Cazzie as Jayme (Sparrow #6). is lonely with a fear-inducing, snarling snarl that you would be wise to avoid. She doesn’t speak much because she doesn’t have to.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 plot: What will happen?
It’s “wilder and zanier than ever before,” teased Blackman, who has confirmed that the setting is Hotel Oblivion. He added: “I think our emotional histories between this dysfunctional family are just building it even further. This year, there are some big surprises for the family.
“There are amazing changes people will love to dig into and there is a lot growth for this family in a way people are not going to anticipate.”
The Umbrella Academy is fond of wrong-footing viewers and uses a lot of twists and turns to surprise and amaze. Page says that the cast is often overwhelmed by the many small developments along the way.
He said, via Netflix, “Well, I felt like I was constantly surprised, ‘cos one the delight things about the show are as we read the scripts. A lot of things are not known to us.” “So, I feel like there are always delightful surprises.”
We are led to believe that The Handler has died and that the Commission will be freed from her grip. We wouldn’t be surprised, however, if she showed up in another pair of fabulous heels with a better and bigger plan.
Although Lila, the Handler’s daughter, managed to escape at the end of the episode, we bet that she will return in season three. Will she support The Umbrella Academy or use her powers against them.
Fans will long for a happy ending for Lila-Diego, so let’s hope they get it.
Before we get to happy endings, let’s not forget about The Sparrow Academy. This will undoubtedly raise some eyebrows.
What does this all mean to The Umbrella Academy?
The comics are not the best source of information. They are still very mysterious, even though they were introduced in the comics. The comic’s fourth volume (unreleased) is named after them. This means that you can expect major developments there. Gerard Way, the co-creator of the book, could also reveal the plot for season three.
Forbes states that the fourth volume of the comic series will be called “Sparrow Academy”.
Way stated, “It deals with a very large reveal in the Umbrella Academy Universe, something that had been kept secret for a long while, and our siblings learn lots about what was going on behind the scenes as well as uncovering the true nature of some characters who have been with them from the beginning.”
“The series finally answers the question, “What about other babies born that day and in that moment?” The Umbrella Academy siblings don’t live alone anymore.
Now that Reginald is revealed, are we going to learn more about his grand plan? It was mentioned that “the dark side” of the moon was involved, but how does this all relate to this?
The biggest question is: How will our heroes ever make it back into their reality? This could be answered by a seemingly innocent season 2 Easter egg.
Episode eight, “The Seven Stages”, features Grace breaking into Reginald’s office to discover some of his projects. Although the show is focused on plans to assassinate John F Kennedy and space travel blueprints, some eagle-eyed viewers might have noticed blueprints for the Televator (Hargreeves calls it “the next great mode” of transportation.
Televator, as comics fans might recall, is a lift that allows users travel through time and space. It can travel across dimensions and more than just time and space. If the device is made in season 3, then maybe the Umbrella Academy can return home one day.
