The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date, Cast, And Teaser - What We Know So Far

For fans of Netflix's bombastic superhero bonanza "The Umbrella Academy," the wait for the show's new season has been the very definition of agonizing. That naturally has a lot to do with the way things were left in the final minutes of the Season 2 finale, which found the time-hopping Hargreeves staving off another apocalyptic event and returning to their own timeline. Only, when they arrived, they found their home occupied by a different group of supers calling themselves The Sparrow Academy.

It was a head-spinning turn of events to be certain, and one that most fans of the series never saw coming. It also teased what's sure to be another truly wild adventure for the upcoming Season 3, and fans have been waiting to see exactly how that adventure will play out. Thankfully, we're set to find out what troubles lay ahead for the Hargreeves faction soon enough. Here's everything we know about Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy" so far.

When will Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy be released?

It's hard to believe, but by the time Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy" makes its way to Netflix, nearly two years will have passed since that Season 2 finale shocker. Or, we should say, shockers, as loads of major twists dropped during the final hour of Season 2. Let us not forget the revelation that Lila Pitts (Ritu Arya) is one of the Hargreeves' super "siblings" and a supremely powered mimic, which dropped before she vamoosed to some unknown point in time via one of those handy Commission cases. 

There's certainly more to come with that story, even as The Umbrella Academy's tango with The Sparrows is likely to dominate the Season 3 narrative. According to a recently released teaser (more on that in a moment), fans will get to see those storylines play out before the actual two-year anniversary of the show's last installment. Season 2 debuted on July 31, 2020, and we now know that Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy" is officially set to hit Netflix on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

Who's in the cast of The Umbrella Academy Season 3?

Given the way things were set up for Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy," there's obviously going to be a lot of narrative ground to cover. And as it is, fans of the first two seasons of the series will likely be delighted to know that Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Elliot Page are all set to reprise their roles in the upcoming season (per Polygon). Given the character's overall reception in Season 2, fans should be equally happy to know Ritu Arya is indeed returning as Lila Pitts in Season 3, as well. Likewise, Colm Feore is slated to return as Sir Reginald Hargreeves, with Adam Godely almost certain to be back as the voice of Pogo, and Jordan Claire Roberts a sure-ish bet to step back into the role of Grace.

As you might expect, the Season 3 cast of "The Umbrella Academy" is getting significantly bigger with the arrival of The Sparrow Academy. The new faces in that motley crew belong to Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, and Cazzie David. As for who else might turn up in Season 3, that's anybody's guess, but even despite the events of the second season finale, we'd be far from shocked to see the return of Kate Walsh's The Handler, or Marin Ireland's Sissy, as well as some version of her now-powered kiddo, Harlan (Justin Paul Kelly).

Netflix has released a teaser for The Umbrella Academy Season 3

As for what that super-sized cast will be up to in Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy," that remains less than certain, as Netflix has yet to release a proper trailer for the new season. Still, given the arrival of The Sparrow Academy, theories abound that the new run of episodes will cover the "Hotel Oblivion" storyline from Gerard Way's and Gabriel Bá's source material. Should that prove to be the case, well, we're all in for a legitimately mind-bending treat.

While we await a proper trailer for Season 3 of "The Umbrella Academy," Netflix has just released an intriguing teaser. It is brief and doesn't give much away, but it seems to confirm that the new season will pick up exactly where Season 2 left off, with Luther (Tom Hopper) and his crew staring down their presumed replacements — not to mention their long-departed brother, Ben (Justin H. Min) — in The Sparrow Academy. If the new teaser is any indication, those crews are not taking kindly to each other as they appear to be prepping to throw down in Sir Reginald's posh library. And if nothing else, the prospect of the Season 3 opener fronting full-on fisticuffs between The Sparrows and The Umbrellas should have us all desperate for June 22, 2022 to hurry up and get here already.
