The Umbrella Academy has officially wrapped filming for Season 3.
The official Instagram account for The Umbrella Academy shared a video montage of the main cast members announcing that production for the upcoming season has concluded. The cast members hyped it up and called it the ‘best season yet.’
The video featured all the Hargreeves siblings, including Elliott Page, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and David Castañeda, along with Ritu Arya and Colm Feore.
Season 2 finale had the Hargreeves siblings return to the year 2019, only to discover that them messing with the past timeline had some unpleasant consequences.
After seeing how his original kids turned out to be, their adopted father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves, forms a different group called the Sparrow Academy.
Reginald had died in the original timeline, with Ben dying as a teenager and his ghost living with Klaus.
However, in the new timeline, both Reginald and Ben are alive (the reason why Reginald still chose Ben was that he never knew how Ben turned out as they did not meet at the disastrous dinner in 1963).
The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series of the same name by My Chemical Romance lead vocalist Gerard Way. There isn’t much information on the Sparrow Academy to draw from the comics as the group only appears briefly at the end of ‘Hotel Oblivion.’
Earlier this year, Netflix announced the casting of all seven Sparrow Academy members. Justin H. Min is returning as Ben and has upgraded his number and is Sparrow #2.
The rest of the cast includes Justin Cornwell As Marcus (Sparrow #1), Britne Oldford as Fei (Sparrow #3), Jake Epstein as Alphonso (Sparrow #4), Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane (Sparrow #5), Cazzie David as Jayme (Sparrow #6), Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube as Christopher (Sparrow #7) (Not even going to question what that is).
The wait for Season 3 has been a long one. Netflix hasn’t announced a release date for season 3 yet. But with the series finishing production, fans can expect the show to have a 2022 release.
