The full scoop on the new episodes


We’re less than a week away from the release of The Umbrella Academy season 3! The popular Netflix series ended on a major cliffhanger last we saw our favorite Hargreeves siblings, and so much is at stake as we enter the new season. It’s no surprise fans are waiting at the edge of their seats for new episodes, as this show has everything you could want out of television. It’s hilarious, action-packed, heartwarming, and unpredictable.

The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book of the same name written by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. It premiered on Netflix back in 2019 and received critical acclaim almost immediately. Needless to say, this show is a staple for the streamer and we’re all so excited to check out the new season!

Ahead of The Umbrella Academy season 3, here’s everything you need to know to be prepared for what’s bound to be an epic binge-watch session.

The Umbrella Academy season 2 recap

The Umbrella Academy season 2 takes place in 1960s Dallas, Texas, as the siblings find themselves in a new time period apart from one another. They begin to start new lives, with Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) finding love with a man named Ray (Yusuf Gatewood) during the Civil Rights Movement and Viktor (Elliot Page) — formerly known in seasons 1-2 as Vanya — now living with a married couple as they try to remember what happened to them.

Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) realizes he has to stop the apocalypse again, while Klaus (Robert Sheehan) starts a cult and struggles with his love for Dave (Cody Ray Thompson). As for Luther (Tom Hopper), he’s kind of all over the place in season 2, dealing with his feelings for Allison and doing what he can to try and save the world.

And Diego (David Castañeda) has one of the most interesting storylines in season 2, as he finds himself in a mental asylum and strikes up a relationship with a fellow inmate named Lila (Ritu Arya).

The Umbrella Academy season 2 ends with the siblings coming together to have an epic battle against the Commission. They realize, because of her powers and her traumatic childhood, that Lila is actually one of them. The last moments of the finale see them time travel to the future to their present-day, and they think everything’s back to normal again. But they’re sadly mistaken, as their home is actually inhabited by The Sparrow Academy — Reginald’s kids in this new timeline.

What is The Umbrella Academy season 3 about?

The upcoming season takes place right where we left off at the end of season 2, with the Umbrella Academy getting home and realizing they don’t actually live there anymore. Somehow, they messed up the timelines and now their reality is that the Sparrow Academy exists and Reginald is actually their dad, or so they say.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Umbrella Academy season 3 from Netflix:

After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?

The Umbrella Academy season 3 cast

We can expect our favorite Hargreeves siblings to return for The Umbrella Academy season 3 along with the side characters we know and love. Additionally, we’ll also be getting to meet a few new faces in the Sparrow Academy. Here’s a list of the major players this season:

  • Elliot Page as Viktor Hargreeves
  • Tom Hopper as Luther Hargreeves
  • Aidan Gallagher as Number Five
  • Robert Sheehan as Klaus Hargreeves
  • David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves
  • Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison Hargreeves
  • Justin H. Min as Ben Hargreeves
  • Colm Feore as Reginald Hargreeves
  • Ritu Arya as Lila Pitts
  • Jordan Claire Robbins as Grace
  • Javon “Wanna” Walton as Stan
  • Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane
  • Jake Epstein as Alphonso
  • Cazzie David as Jayme
  • Britne Oldford as Fei
  • Justin Cornwell as Marcus

Is Viktor (Elliot Page) transgender in The Umbrella Academy?

When Elliot Page came out as transgender back in 2020, fans were speculating (and hoping!) that his character, formerly known in seasons 1-3 as Vanya Hargreeves, would also come out in the show. To our pleasant surprise, Netflix announced that would be the case, introducing us to Viktor Hargreeves in a new still from season 3. So yes, Page’s character now goes by Viktor in The Umbrella Academy season 3 and he is a transgender man. We’re excited to follow along with his coming out storyline in the new episodes.

Who does Euphoria star Javon Walton play in The Umbrella Academy?

15-year-old actor Javon Walton, who rose to fame for playing Ashtray in HBO’s Euphoria, has joined the cast of The Umbrella Academy season 3! He will be playing a character named Stan, but not much else is known about the role. Netflix even joked around back in May 2022 on Twitter, sharing a gif of the actor in the new season and asking fans for theories on who he’s playing.

When does The Umbrella Academy season 3 come out? Release date and time

Netflix has surprisingly opted for a Wednesday release for the upcoming premiere, with The Umbrella Academy season 3 coming out on June 22, 2022 at 12:00 a.m. PT / 3:00 a.m. ET. Will you be staying up late to binge the new episodes? We won’t blame you if you do!

How many episodes is The Umbrella Academy season 3?

Just like with the previous seasons of the Netflix Original, season 3 will consist of 10 episodes. Showrunner Steve Blackman announced the episode titles, according to Collider, which are as follows:

  1. “Meet the Family”
  2. “The World’s Biggest Ball of Twine”
  3. “Pocket Full of Lightning”
  4. “Kugelblitz”
  5. “Kindest Cut”
  6. “Marigold”
  7. “Auf Wiedersehen”
  8. “Wedding at the End of the World”
  9. “Six Bells”
  10. “Oblivion”

Where was The Umbrella Academy season 3 filmed?

Though the series takes place in various locations, all three seasons have been primarily filmed in parts of Canada, including Toronto, Ontario and Hamilton, Ontario. Onlookers have captured many photos of the cast filming season 3 out in Hamilton, which you can check out here.

Where is The Umbrella Academy season 3 set?

Season 2 took place primarily in Dallas, Texas, but the Hargreeves are back home come The Umbrella Academy season 3. Though it’s never explicitly confirmed, their home is located in what seems to be New York City. It’s referenced, according to Fandom, as simply “The City.” Eagle-eyed fans over at CBR noticed there might be a road trip to Pennsylvania in season 3, which would make sense considering New York and Pennsylvania are not far away from each other.

The Umbrella Academy age rating

If a child or teenager in your life is interested in watching The Umbrella Academy and you’re not sure if they’re old enough, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about the age rating. The series is rated TV-14, which is comparable to the movie rating PG-13. Despite this being a relatively light show with a lot of comedy, there’s also a lot of violence and gore, along with some profanity.

If you’re on the fence about letting someone watch The Umbrella Academy, we’d recommend you checking out IMDb’s Parents Guide on the show.

The Umbrella Academy season 3 trailer

The full-length trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 3 is just as epic as I was hoping for! Watch it below and prepare to get excited. Yes, that is Pogo making his return!

How to watch The Umbrella Academy season 3

If you don’t have a Netflix subscription, you might be wondering if there’s any other way you can stream the new season of The Umbrella Academy. Unfortunately, because this is a Netflix Original, the only way you can access the 10 new episodes is with a Netflix account. Be sure to sign up for one here.

Is The Umbrella Academy season 4 happening?

At this time, The Umbrella Academy season 4 has not yet been announced. However, there have been rumors that the series is already renewed. That said, we’ll have to wait for Netflix to confirm another season to know for sure. Once season 3 comes out, we don’t think it will be long before a fourth season is ordered. This is one of the streamer’s most popular shows, and it’s even been nominated for multiple Emmy Awards.

We’re crossing our fingers that The Umbrella Academy season 4 happens and we’ll be sure to update you once we know the renewal or cancellation status!
