Season 3 reveals mysterious ‘The Sparrows Academy’
After saving the world in 1960s Dallas, the Hargreeves returned home but instead of a warm hug, a new turmoil was waiting ahead of them i.e. “The Sparrows Academy”.
Their home was occupied by Sparrows having seven members in their Academy namely, Marcus (Justin Cornwell), Ben (Justin H Min), Fei (Britne Oldford), Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), Jayme (Cazzie David), and Christopher (Psykronium cube).
It would be interesting to watch the mysterious sparrows with unique powers this season!
Season 3 will resolve a major mystery from season 1
From the pilot season, audiences are eagerly waiting to get the answer regarding the 43 children with special powers who were born at the exact same time to women who were not pregnant. Reports are that season 3 may shed some light on why Sir Reginald chose only seven out of the 43 children and what happened to the remaining 36 children.
Interestingly, season 3 might also reveal what happened to the original ‘Umbrella Academy’ in this universe and where they all ended up. Whatever the answers are, these revelations will have a huge impact on the plot of the show.
‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3: What else can we expect?
‘The Umbrella Academy’ is based on the graphic comic book of the same name by Gerard Way. So far, the web series follows the original comics. That means season 3 should cover the events of Hotel Oblivion. However, that might not be the case.
In a recent interview with Collider, Emmy Raver-Lampman aka Allison said, “I think there will always be a connection there [with the comic series], but the further we get into The Umbrella Academy, the TV show, I think it’s finding its own way. It’s finding its own route, which is exciting. This third season, we’re really, really doing our own thing, and I think the show has found some really cool plots to follow and explore”.
Now that is indeed interesting!

Whereas, Ritu Arya, who was last seen in season 2, will reprise her role as Lila.
‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3: Release date
Back in October, Netflix revealed through a teaser trailer that the new season is coming in 2022. Although there isn’t any new information on when in 2022 exactly, in the same interview with Collider, Raver-Lampman dropped a hint when she was asked about it and said, “I hope this summer because I want to see this season so badly”.
Generally, Netflix drops the official trailer a month before the launch of a season. So, we can only hope!
