Its still a year ago, but theories about The Umbrella Academy Season 3 are emerging thick and fast. There’s still a chance that Detective Eudora patch might be alive.
This is in continuation of the Umbrella Academy theory series. Spoilers ahead.
The Umbrella Academy is a unique superhero venture that answers the question – what type of person you grow up to be when you have powers? Despite making superheroes, all ‘hero’ like, the show makes them human-like with major drawbacks. If you look at the seven siblings, you find how they deal with mental health issues of varying severity. The show really gets into the nooks and crooks of growing up under an exploitative parent. Vanya’s outburst which causes the apocalypse in the first season is the ultimate metaphor for the mental health implications of childhood traumas.
What should we expect in Season 3?
Klaus, certainly the most charming out of the seven, is shown dealing with drug abuse in the first two seasons. The drugs stop Klaus from completely tapping into his powers of conjuring dead people. As we see, in the first two seasons that Ben, his brother who’s dead, is Klaus’ constant companion and helps him remain sober. There are still some doubts over Ben’s future – if Ben from Umbrella Academy will come back or will be completely replaced by the Ben from Sparrow Academy. So, if Ben doesn’t come back, who’s going to keep Klaus sober? Season 3 might be the season where we see Klaus taking control of his powers and realize his potential Otherwise, the character might lose its charm and become too monotonous for the viewers.
If Ben doesn’t come back, who keeps Klaus sober? The Umbrella Academy Season 3 might be the one where Klaus finally gains control over his powers.

Coming back to the siblings, Diego is another unexplored character. We see him use his powers occasionally and don’t know anything about his past life. Diego is shown with two different love interests, in the two episodes. In The Umbrella Academy Season 1, Detective Eudora (Ashley Madekwe) dies at the hands of Hazel and Cha Cha. But now, that the seven are back to 2019 (original timeline), there’s a chance she still might be alive in Season 3 because of the alterations in the timeline. So, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 might give us an insight into their relationship or make it even complicated as Lila Pitts, Diego’s love interest from Season 2, played by Ritu Arya, is definitely coming back.
Although Detective Eudora was seen dying in The Umbrella Academy season 1, her comeback in season 3 is down to alterations in the timeline.

The Lila Pitts Wildcard
Lila Pitts is a huge wildcard for The Umbrella Academy Season 3. She fits into all the scenarios in the show at the moment – might turn out to be the good guy or the bad guy. Its hard to say. She’s the only other character who has the power to time travel, other than Number Five. There’s a high chance that she might be responsible for all the glitches in the timeline which replaced the Umbrella Academy with the Sparrow Academy.

Apart from Lila, another character is Harlan, who got Vanya’s power in Season 2. As Harlan is from 1963, it’s quite difficult to say what role he might play in 2019 but another interesting theory is that he might be the one who started it. It, here meaning when all the one-day pregnancies happened in the first episode of the first season. It is possible that Hargreeves met Harlan back in the sixties and worked with him.
Hargreeves is possibly the most mysterious character in the show right now. In Season 3, we hope to find the answer to whether he was involved in Kennedy’s assassination or not. Fans are also very curious about his and Grace’s equation. How did she turn into a robot on the way?!

With Lila Pitts and Detective Eudora expected to be back in Season 3, there can be a million possibilities with The Umbrella Academy. But the fans have to wait a little longer for the next season because the third season won’t hit Netflix before the second half of 2021.
