Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy ended on a big cliffhanger as the Umbrellas time-traveled out of the 1960s moments before another possible apocalypse and returned to 2019, only to face the Sparrow Academy. The only thing we know about the Sparrows is that they are a parallel universe counterpart of the Umbrellas, led by their own Ben (Justin H. Min).
We’ve got a lot of questions about what that means and how big of a problem the Sparrows will be for the Umbrellas. Thankfully, Season 3 is on the way, and it will pick up right where the Season 2 finale left off, allowing us to learn more about the alternate-reality version of 2019 in which Reginald (Colm Feore) is still alive and an even more dangerous set of paranormal adoptive siblings is attempting to protect the world.
According to the official Season 3 description, the Umbrellas will inevitably face up against the Sparrows, but they will also need their assistance to prevent yet another apocalyptic disaster that might be precipitated by the Umbrellas’ disorderly history jumping. Will they be able to save the planet once more, or has their luck run out? Here’s everything we know about Season 3 of Umbrella Academy so far.

Welcome to the world of Viktor Hargreeves! Number 7, who is still played by Elliot Page, will come out as transgender in the forthcoming season, according to the TV Guide. On March 29, the actor shared an image from Season 3 with the message “Meet Viktor Hargreeves” on social media, revealing his character’s new name. Page’s tweet was shared by the official Umbrella Academy Twitter account, along with the description “Number 7 Viktor Hargreeves.”
During SXSW, series creator Steve Blackman allayed fans’ fears by revealing that The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will launch globally on Netflix on Wednesday, June 22. The announcement was preceded by a brief teaser that showed the Umbrellas battling the Sparrows before revealing the date. So make a note in your calendars!
Despite the fact that Season 3 was completed in August 2021, we have yet to see a trailer for the new episodes.
Javon Walton of Euphoria was revealed as a Season 3 cast member in March 2022. “I heard a rumor… that Javon Walton will be joining the cast of Umbrella Academy Season 3 – and I’m delighted to report that it is true!” Netflix sent out a tweet from its official account. Details on who Walton will play and how he will fit into the season have yet to be revealed.
Season 3 will also feature a slew of new cast members, who will play the new Sparrow Academy from the parallel realm where the Umbrella Academy arrived at the end of Season 2. Marcus will be played by Justin Cromwell (I Am the Night), Fei by Britne Oldford (Hunters), Sloane by Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time), Jayme by Cazzie David, and Alphonso by Jake Epstein (Degrassi: The Next Generation).
The series has also cast an “existential dread-inducing-psykronium cube” to play Christopher, one of the Sparrows, according to Netflix. A character description reads, “Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin.” “He has the ability to make a room ice cold and paralyze fear.” That ought to be entertaining.
In this reality, Justin H. Min will play a different version of his character Ben, who will head the Sparrows team.
