Netflix is finally beginning to drop hints about “The Umbrella Academy’s” much awaited third season, after a long period of silence. It’s already been a terrible wait for devoted fans of the programme, since it’s been more than a year since the show’s season 2 finale landed a really mind-boggling bombshell. That stunning conclusion was all the more difficult to swallow because it occurred right after the time-displaced Hargreeves clan utilised their combined abilities to vanquish the wicked Handler (Kate Walsh) and return to their own timeline.
When the Hargreeves return home, they are surprised to discover that they have already been joined by another superhero team, with the revived Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min) and Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) seemingly in charge. While we still don’t know much about The Sparrow Academy’s hows, whys, and whos, the implications of those unexpected resurrections, or what the heck that floating green cube thing is, a new teaser for Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy” has finally revealed the whens and wheres of the next adventure.
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is now available for pre-order.
Just this morning, the Season 3 teaser was released on Netflix’s official “The Umbrella Academy” website. While the 14-second trailer doesn’t include any footage from the new season or even a peek at everyone’s favourite dysfunctional family of supers, it does provide a couple of major updates on the next season. First and foremost, the teaser indicates that fans of the programme will have to wait a little longer to see the next season since the teaser’s closing picture has a large “2022” in the frame.
Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy” is scheduled to premiere next year, although no precise date has been announced. Given that Season 1 premiered in February and Season 2 premiered in July, there isn’t much of a pattern for when new episodes are released.
The bad news is this: Now for the good news: the Season 3 trailer for “The Umbrella Academy” appears to validate the widely-held belief that the upcoming episodes would focus on the fan-favourite “Hotel Oblivion” plotline from Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s popular graphic novel series. We won’t go into detail about that insane narrative arc if you haven’t yet read the series’ source material. In Season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy,” however, fans of Way and Bá can expect things to grow weirder than ever. Let’s hope that the next season arrives in 2022 as soon as possible.
