The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
The Umbrella Academy season 2 landed on Netflix on 31st July 2020. The creators worked hard, and the reviews from the critics and fans paid off their hard work. Even though the fans were eager to know about the third season, Netflix has kept its lips sealed for a long time, until recently we got a confirmation through Twitter.
It was undoubted that Netflix wouldn’t let go of a series that is doing so good. For a long time, rumors were going around that the third season is already in the making. It has also been reported that two new writers have joined the team for the third season.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Cast: Who will appear in the show?
Will the original cast make a comeback? Notably, the Umbrella Academy would not be the same if the fans’ favorites were absent. As it seems, Diego, Luther, Five, Klaus, Allison, and Vanya have put their existence in danger. It may be unlikely that new characters will replace them, but it is too early to be sure. Either way, you expect the Hargreeves clan, including the Hargreeves kids, to make an appearance.
The following characters may be part of the next season: Ellen Page as Vanya, Tom Hopper as Luther, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, David Castaneda as Diego, Aidan Gallagher as Number Five, and Ethan Hwang as Ben.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Storyline: What is it about?
Not much is known about the content of the next season, leaving the subject open for speculation. However, here is what you should learn from the previous seasons: After the transportation of the Hargreeves family to the 1960s, season 2 wraps up with them traveling back to the present day after succeeding in the mission to avert apocalypse circa November 1963. Landing back on April 2, 2019, the group comes to a realization that in traveling back in time, they succeeded in preventing not only one apocalypse but two of them.
However, their joy is not all complete as they discover that some things are not right in this version of 2019. Their father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves, is alive the same as their brother Number Six, who should have died in 2006. As if this is not enough, Hargreeves has adopted seven children he calls The Sparrow Academy, which means the Umbrella Academy has received a replacement!

Suffice to say; the third season is highly recommendable to quench the fans’ suspense. Meanwhile, stay tuned for updates regarding The Umbrella Academy Season 3.
