Netflix renews ‘The Umbrella Academy’ for 3rd season

The Umbrella Academy production is set to begin in February in Toronto, Canada.

Dark Horse Comics has revealed The Umbrella Academy is coming back for a third season on Netflix. The new season will feature 10 episodes and the entire main cast and showrunner. Production is set to begin in February in Toronto, Canada.

Don’t miss our review of The Umbrella Academy Season 2.

So what’s The Umbrella Academy S2 about?

Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?). Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassin’s. But seriously, no pressure or anything.
