We are happy to announce that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will premiere this year, while, sadly, no specific date has been set for the show. Still, the delay doesn’t mean there isn’t any significant news about the upcoming season to write and read about.
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is officially due to appear on Netflix in 2022, and Netflix’s great hit has already been ramping up its promotion skills for the beloved superhero drama series. The third season of The Umbrella Academy -it is one of the all-time favorite Netflix TV shows- is not going to be arriving on the screens soon.
In our article, we have done our best to predict the release date of the show because why not? If it is certain that it will be released in 2022, why not predict it? We also gave our best shot to the release date for the trailer. Curious? Keep reading then!
We have compiled a list of everything you need to know about the third season of the Netflix series. We included who is in the cast, which characters will be coming back in season 3, and the new faces we might see from the Sparrow Academy.
We will even reveal the number and names of the episodes of the upcoming season. There are also some shocking tweets and statements, as well as a recap of everything known about the new season. We will not be done with those, though; so, keep reading to find out about what we know about The Umbrella Academy Season 3 so far.
Will there be a Season 3 of Umbrella Academy?
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is set to premiere in 2022, while no other details have been released. We can, however, make some guesses and have some wild shots. News of season 2 was getting released in April 2019 and the season premiered in July 2020. Using this clue, Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy would be released in February 2022. But will it? Absolutely not because we are almost at the end of the month.
But when will we get solid info about the release date of the third season? Season 2’s release date was revealed in May 2020, and two months later, the season debuted. It is most likely that this pattern will be repeated for the 3rd season, so we can see an official release declaration fairly soon, maybe next month.
Season 3 does not have an official release date that we know of. What we do know for certain is that it will be available in 2022. The Umbrella Academy season 3 may premiere solely on Netflix later this year, because of the post made on the show’s Twitter Page:
The titles of the episodes from the third season have been announced in Netflix Geeked Week, let’s check them out:
- Meet the Family
- World’s Biggest Ball of Twine
- Pocket Full of Lightning
- Kindest Cut
- Auf Wiedersehen
- Wedding at the End of the World
- Six Bells
From the titles, many fans are having wild guesses about what those titles might have a reference to. What do you think? Comment below to share your guesses.
What happened in Umbrella Academy Season 2?
The Hargreeveses got the Handler and Lila. This should have been a one-sided encounter in the season finale but that was not the case, because we finally got the see Lila’s abilities.
She sustained Vanya’s energy blast, which shocked us a lot. She blink-fights like Five and somehow manages to trick Allison into holding her breath. The Hargreeveses later discover that Lila was born on the same day as the rest of the tribe. If you do not know, the Hargreeves children are born on October 1, 1989. Reginald Hargreeves has been working on finding and adopting those children for some time.

36 women gave birth on the same day without showing any symptoms of pregnancy and Lila is one of those 36 children. It looks like that is why the Handler recruited her and slaughtered her family. There is no satisfactory answer to any of the questions that the ending of season 2 arose, but it appears that future seasons of the program may pursue those questions.
The startling cliffhanger Season 2 conclusion reveals the existence of a new team, The Sparrow Academy, in what appears to be an alternative universe. Not only that, but Ben appears to be the head of this new superhero squad in this universe. The season concludes with this shocking scene.
Umbrella Academy Cast
The Hargreeves siblings will be played by Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min, with Ritu Arya continuing as Lila. Colm Feore makes his entrance again as Reginald Hargreeves.
The season 2 finale of The Umbrella Academy also revealed the “Sparrow Academy,” a new squad of superheroes created by a still-alive Reginald in an alternate dimension. Justin H. Min will play an alternate-universe version of the character Ben.
Marcus, the Sparrows’ head who holds the gang in line, will be played by Justin Cornwell. Fei, a friendless sociopath who is typically the most intelligent character compared to the others, will be played by Britne Oldford. Alphonso is played by Jake Epstein, who has a sharp sense of fun. On the other hand, Sloane is played by Genesis Rodriguez, who is a sentimental daydreamer. Cazzie David will portray Jayme, an introvert who doesn’t say much.
Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube will be Christopher. As you might know, he is the seventh Sparrow but there is no info about who will be playing him. Christopher is loyal and faithful, and he has the ability to freeze a location and cause crippling terror. We now understand why there was a massive cube at the end of Season 2.

How did Ben die in The Umbrella Academy?
We hear that Ben perished in an accident while on The Umbrella Academy operation. The ending of season 2 begins with Ben’s funeral and the cracks in each and every Umbrella Academy bond begin to appear throughout this burial scene. Every Hargreeves family member shouts at each other before rushing off.
Klaus is the last one standing, and he takes a minute to reflect on Ben’s coffin. He then uses his talents. Klaus, who can communicate with the dead, talks to and assists Ben in adjusting to his new existence as a spirit.
