The Umbrella Academy Makers reveals plans for season 3 of the Netflix series

“The Umbrella Academy”: Makers reveals plans for season 3 of the Netflix series

The second season of “The Umbrella Academy” is currently the top series on Netflix. We think it’s almost certain that there will be a third season – showrunner Steve Blackman definitely has plans for the sequel.

“The Umbrella Academy” showrunner Steve Blackman loves the series and his cast, and he definitely wants to go on for a long time – but is very afraid: He doesn’t want to have to tell the series beyond its comic templates, as with “Game Of Thrones “was the case. He revealed that in an interview with ComicBook.

In fact, this scenario is not really threatening either: Comic volume 3, “The Umbrella Academy Volume 3: Hotel Oblivion”, is already out *, so material for a third season is already there. The fourth volume is already in the works and should appear in 2020, and the series is supposedly planned to at least volume 9.

Blackman also works closely with the comic strip creators Gabriel Bá and My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way, so he’s always up to date. So he has the plans for the plot of season 3 pretty much in his head, as he revealed to The Wrap.

Is season 3 even coming?

The third season of the Netflix series has not yet been ordered, but this is not uncommon. The streaming service usually waits a few weeks after the start of a new season until it decides on the future of a series – with successful formats such as “The Umbrella Academy”, however, this is more of a formality.

The makers want and have material for sequels, the series is currently at the top of the Netflix top ten. We’re sure: Season 3 is coming fmovies.

Warning, spoilers for season 2 of “The Umbrella Academy” will follow!

And as it should be for the cliffhanger of a season finale, we have already received a lot of material for the coming season in the tenth episode of season 2: There will be new characters, namely the members of the Sparrow Academy, the super foster children of Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) in an alternate timeline.

There will be new characters, namely the members of the Sparrow Academy

The Sparrow Academy

The fact that Reginald decided to take in children other than the Umbrella Academy in this timeline is probably due to the fact that he was disappointed with their members during their time travel meeting in season 2. So of the 43 superpowered babies born on the same day in 1989, he just picked different ones – except for Ben (Justin H. Min).

He chose him for his new troop, probably because he did not get to know his spirit during the time travel encounter. After all, only Klaus (Robert Sheehan) can see it.

Alive Ben

While we only got to know the deceased Ben as a ghost in the first two seasons and he has now even said goodbye to heaven as such, so has finally disappeared, we will get to know him in season 3 as a living person. Because he is still alive in the alternative timeline and is a sparrow instead of an umbrella.

According to Blackman, season 3 will largely be about Ben and the reinvention of his character, who now has a completely different history and different “siblings”:

According to Blackman, season 3 will largely be about Ben and the reinvention of his character, who now has a completely different history and different “siblings”:

“This is really great for Justin, he [Ben] is now flesh and blood, so he can now interact with characters other than Klaus. The fun of it so far has been that Ben is the most sensitive and most beloved of the siblings, but in Klaus he had the worst translator of all time [because Ben could only communicate as a ghost through Klaus]. But this Ben is flesh and blood and he exists. So Justin has new territory in the new season that he can explore. ”

The Umbrella Academy is getting stronger

The members of the Umbrella Academy may have superpowers, but instead of doing good they tend to cause chaos because the dysfunctional family simply cannot work well together.

According to Blackman, that should finally change slowly in season 3: “These people can’t manage anything, neither in their relationships with one another nor as superheroes. But they get a little better and if we’re lucky and get the green light for season 3, they’ll keep improving. ”

Most importantly, they might find that their powers are even stronger when they work together. One more reason to finally get together.

It remains to be seen who they will have to fight this time. Fan theories already suggest that the Sparrow Academy could be a super villain troop instead of a superhero – so maybe the Umbrellas will have to take on their super baby “siblings”. But you could also ally yourself against a common opponent. And in the end they usually cause most of the chaos themselves anyway – keyword “Vanya”.
