A new, close look of the seven Sparrows in The Umbrella Academy Season 3 has been released.
On January 1, 2022, the show treated its fans to close up character posters of The Sparrows.
The seven members are part of a group of children Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) adopted when the Umbrella Academy’s children unknowingly altered the timeline by traveling to the 1960s.
The posters only show half of the actors’ faces, but each character has its own story. Number 2, 3, and 4’s close-ups show scars on their face, presumably from the ugly fights they have been in.
Number 3’s poster in particular raises more curiosity. First off, it’s the only poster that shows a member wearing sunglasses. Secondly, it shows a different flying direction of the sparrows.
One significant change in the group is its extraterrestrial team member, No. 7—an Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube named Christopher.
Take a look at the character posters below:
The Sparrows were introduced in the finale of The Umbrella Academy Season 2, although only Ben was seen while the rest were in the shadows.
The seven members of the Sparrows are Marcus (Justin Cornwell), Ben (Justin H. Min), Fei (Britne Oldford), Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), Jayme (Cazzie David), and Christopher (the cube).
Theories suggest Sir Hargreeves was so disappointed looking at the dysfunctional Umbrella Academy members when they encountered him in 1963 that he purposely chose to stay away from them.
The patriarch chose seven other members, including a telekinetic cube, and named them the Sparrows because the little birds are known for their unity—hoping they don’t turn out like the other group.
After the finale in June 2020, fans have been dying to catch a glimpse of the next season. With character posters out, they wonder what would happen when the two alternate groups of crime-fighters from the same patriarch meet.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will be released sometime in 2022.
