The Umbrella Academy has returned, and they are ready to take on their next big challenge: saving the planet for the third time. Everyone’s favorite dysfunctional superhero family returns, but they’re not alone this time, as they battle a new set of heroes known as The Sparrow Academy.
While fans may be asking if this means the Netflix show will not be available for binge viewing, the answer is ‘no’—the Wednesday release date has not impacted the streaming platform’s practice of sharing all episodes at once.
About ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will start up where Season 2 left off, with the Hargreeves pitted against their replacements in The Sparrow Academy.
“They’ve returned to the academy, but unfortunately there’s another family that claims to be living there, The Sparrows,” the show’s creator and showrunner Steve Blackman told Newsweek about what’s to come in the following episodes.
“Something is amiss because Hargreeves is also present… Hargreeves is dead in their timeline, as is Ben, even though both appear to be living. That is the primary distinction.”
Season 3 will see the characters coping not only with each other but also with the Kugleblitz, a phenomenon that begins destroying items in the universe by dragging them into a fictitious black hole.
The show’s third season will feature the return of Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Justin H. Min, and Aidan Gallagher.
They will reprise their roles as Luther (Hopper), Diego (Castaeda), Alison (Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Sheehan), Five (Gallagher), Viktor (Page), and Ben Hargreeves (Min).
Ritu Arya will reprise her role as Lila, Colm Feore will reprise his part as Reginald Hargreeves, and Adam Godley will reprise his role as monkey Pogo.
Justin Cornwell as Marcus, Britne Oldford as Fei, Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane, Cazzie David as Jayme, and Jake Epstein as Alphonso are among the new cast members.
Release Date of ‘The Umbrella Academy Season3’
Netflix has announced that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will be available on the service on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

What Is The Story Of The Umbrella Academy Season 3?
The Sparrow Academy, their pasts, and their connections to our heroes will dominate The Umbrella Academy Season 3. While the Sparrows appear in the comics, little is known about them in the source material. This is good because the show has always kept a healthy distance from the comics.
The major protagonists will most likely attempt to return to their timeframe. In Season 2, there was an easter egg that hinted at a gadget called the Televator that allowed transit across dimensions. The Hargreeves siblings may attempt to use this gadget to return to their proper time and location.
Season 2 also revealed that Reginald Hargreeves is an alien. This could be a storyline aspect in Season 3. The Season 2 finale also revealed that Harlan Cooper (Justin Paul Kelly) has kept part of Vanya’s skills. This could be studied more in the future season as well.
The final episode of Season 3, “Oblivion,” reveals a connection to Hotel Oblivion. This is the name of a hotel/prison created by Reginald Hargreeves to hold the criminals defeated by the Academy in the comics. Perhaps the Umbrella Academy will land up there and will have to plan a spectacular prison break.
