Warning: This article contains spoilers for Umbrella Academy Season 3.
The Umbrella Academy family has been through a lot. They’ve traveled through time, stopped the apocalypse twice, and done it all in a matter of days, if we’re tracking their achievements in real time. Still, the team's unexpected superhero days are far from over.
At the end of Season 3, we didn’t get many answers, just more questions. Now that our world is destroyed, where did everyone end up? How are Allison’s daughter and Ray together in the same timeline? Where’s Sloane? And what is the Sparrow Academy’s Ben doing on that train? Is there any way to return the world to how it was?
That’s not even mentioning Reginald Hargreeves. Despite how he came off to Klaus throughout most of Season 3, Reginald is still as devious as ever. But from the Season 3 finale, it looks like we’ll finally get some clarity on what all his secret planning was for. It looks like he has a woman named Abigail standing with him in the new reality he destroyed the world to create. And if his willingness to trick his children and the Umbrella Academy into doing his bidding is any indication, he’ll do anything to get what he wants. The remaining Sparrows and the Umbrella Academy may all have to band together to defeat Reginald.
The only thing we know for sure is that there’s a clear set-up for a Season 4 of The Umbrella Academy. Here’s everything we know about a potential Season 4 of The Umbrella Academy. We’ll update this space with the latest news.
Will There Be a Season 4 of The Umbrella Academy?
Since the show’s Season 3 just premiered, it could be too soon for Netflix to give it a green light. How many people tune into the new season could be the data the streaming service uses to determine whether or not The Umbrella Academy gets a renewal.
Steve Blackman, who created the Netflix adaptation of The Umbrella Academy, told Men's Health he already has plans for what he wants to do for the next season, and will answer many of the unanswered questions left after the Season 3 finale, including that mysterious post-credits scene.
"I can only tell you it is the Ben from the Sparrow timeline," Blackman says. "It is the Ben you’ve seen all season long. I can’t tell you why he's there, or what the glasses are all about, but that is the Ben from the Sparrow Academy. Everything else will be answered next year."
"I think if we got to Season 4, it would be a great ending for the run of the show," he told the publication. "I’m not saying I couldn’t do more, but you know, I think that would be very satisfying for the audience, four seasons.”
Having said all that, Netflix only has one more season of Stranger Things, and after that, The Umbrella Academy may just be its most popular genre show. It would be shocking if we didn't see the Umbrellas (and the remaining Sparrows) back for more.
When Will Season 4 of The Umbrella Academy come out?
Until we get official confirmation of another season, we can’t say anything for sure. But in the meantime, get clarity on some of the major twists in Season 3, like who the mysterious old man is, or a breakdown of the Sparrow Academy, and check out our interview with creator Steve Blackman.
