Umbrella Academy is back with its new season. The superhero siblings are back with a bang and more powerful than ever ( at least in the beginning). The series loosely follows the comic books created and written by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. The series gripped viewers with its opening scene, which was quite memorable. The Hargreeves siblings are all born on the same day. Fathered by a mysterious man, the siblings all have unique superpowers. The premise of the show is quite interesting to watch. Netflix immediately picked up the show for a second season. And the new season just dropped. However, Netflix is quite famous for cutting off shows mid-seasons. We are only hoping Umbrella Academy does not become one such show. The trailer of the show was already creating buzz. And now the wait is finally over. Read on ahead to what to expect from the new season. And the possibility of Umbrella Academy Season 4.
What happened in Season 3?
The superhero siblings are at it again. The main focus of the series is the alternate sparrow academy. Courtesy of a “Kügelblitz” initiated by the Umbrella Academy’s impossible presence in an alternate dimension, it can end the world. So, according to our new friends from the sparrow academy, the Hargreeves siblings should not exist.
As in their universe, their parents died before giving birth to them. And now, their presence in this universe is disturbing the balance of the cosmos. The universe is supposedly trying to eat itself up, so the siblings must die. ( Too many universes, we tell you!) It’s all fun and games until the sparrow academy tries to kill the Hargreeves.
Meet the cast
Let’s brush you up about who plays who in the series:
- Elliot Page as Vanya
- Tom Hopper as Luther
- David Castañeda as Diego
- Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison
- Robert Sheehan as Klaus
- Aidan Gallagher as Five
- Justin H. Min as Ben
Will there be a season 4 of Umbrella Academy?
So judging by the popularity of the series, there should be a season 4 for sure. The siblings are left with no powers at the end of the series. The timelines and universes all need a new revival in the form of a new season. The series ended on some loose ends, which will require smoothening in the new season.
It will be interesting to see the world’s condition now that Sir Reginald has total control over it. Season 3 revealed that he created that hotel as a machine to rule over the world.
What’s up with the post-credit scene?
As if the series’ twists were not enough, we also have a post-credit scene. The scene is a sure hint to a potential new season. We see Ben riding a subway which seems to be in Korea. Now, who is Ben, and what universe does he belong to? He might be the sparrow Academy Ben, or he might be a different version of Ben Hargreeves. ( Because yes, doppelgangers are a thing now!)
