It was January 2019 when the series comes from the graphic novel signed by the frontman of My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way debuted on Netflix, and for almost a year now also the second season is available. We had to wait a long time to see the most recent episodes of The Umbrella Academy. Shortly thereafter, however, important news began to circulate about the future of the title.
What’s On Netflix had learned from a source that the streaming service had unofficially already renewed the series for a third season well before July 31, the date on which season 2 reached the platform. Also according to the site, this premature renewal was due to a health emergency.
The order for a season 3 for The Umbrella Academy given so early would have allowed the team to start working on pre-production from home already, thus saving time and being ready to start work once the green light to get back on the track came. set. On 10 November 2020, then, the official confirmation from the service arrived: the TV series has been renewed.
As reiterated several times, there is plenty of material on which to base season 3 of The Umbrella Academy. In fact, Gerard Way, speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, had stated right from the start that he had in mind the plot for another five volumes, bringing the comic series to have eight in all.
The frontman of My Chemical Romance had also taken steps to surrender the showrunner a document that describes what will happen in future chapters. For Steve Blackman, it would therefore be ideal to be able to make 8 seasons.
The Umbrella Academy 3 Season Release Date
Despite the official renewal, dating back to last fall, we still can’t say when The Umbrella Academy 3 season is out. However, Production Weekly had reported, a few days before the news of the renewal, that the filming of the new episodes would begin on February 1, 2021, to extend until August, perhaps making the debut possible in early 2022.
Elliot Page later reported that the car had actually started up again in late February. The actor later also shared a shot between takes, in the company of colleague Emmy Raver-Lampman. According to Tom Hopper, the new rules to follow due to COVID are slowing down production. We don’t think we will see the new episodes anytime soon. We will follow any updates and bring you any news.
Advances From The Second Season
Over the course of season 2, the Hargreeves found themselves in the Dallas of the ’60s, once again tailed by Handler, who tried to infiltrate each other through his daughter Lila, and with the threat of a new apocalypse looming. Without losing the clarity that sets him apart, Number 5 managed to reunite the brothers to prevent what would have been a nuclear disaster.
To determine it would once again be Vanya, despite the amnesia, setting in motion a series of events. Unexpectedly, it was Ben who brought his sister back to her senses. Having escaped the apocalypse, the seven then had to get rid of Handler and the other agents of the commission.
Taking advantage of a little teaching received from Sir Reginald Hargreeves, Number 5 managed to get rid of the woman for good. With one of the briefcases with which the agents had reached Sissy’s farm, the place of the final confrontation, the brothers teleported in 2019, exactly one day after the apocalypse, which never happened. Arriving directly at The Umbrella Academy, however, they immediately realize that something is wrong: Ben is still alive, he is a little boy and according to Sir Reginald Hargreeves the building is known as Sparrow Academy.
It is difficult to say today what could happen in season 3 of The Umbrella Academy, starting from this incipit. We know that new characters will be introduced and that we will find ourselves in another timeline. Probably the brothers will try to understand what caused this radical change. Both Elliot Page and Emmy Raver-Lampman said in a video shared on social media by Netflix that they were often surprised when reading the script.
With the revelation of the titles, then, the hypothesis emerged that we could shed light on the mysterious power that made the Hargreeves brothers what they are: Marigold. We look forward to more details.
