Meet the Sparrows in the "Umbrella Academy" Season 3 Sneak Peek
Get ready for more wild twists and turns, because "The Umbrella Academy" is officially returning for season three this month. On May 19, Netflix released the full trailer for the upcoming season. In it, our beloved Umbrella Academy finds themselves trapped in a time paradox, where they've been replaced by the crime-fighting Sparrow Academy and they no longer exist. Interstitials between the footage read, "Too many siblings, not enough timeline."
On June 21, Netflix released a three-minute sneak peek at season three's first episode, which formally introduces all seven members of the Sparrow Academy — Marcus, aka #1; Ben, aka #2; Fei, aka #3; Alphonso, aka #4, Sloane, aka #5, Jayme, aka #6; and Christopher, aka #7.
Last October, the streamer first announced that the new season would premiere in 2022 with a teaser shared on the streaming site. The clip suggested that several episodes would take place at Hotel Oblivion, which first appeared in the third volume of the show's comics titled "The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion."
Netflix also confirmed a new face that's joining the cast. "I heard a rumor . . . that Javon Walton is joining the cast of 'Umbrella Academy' Season 3 — and I'm happy to confirm that it is true!," the streamer tweeted on March 1. Walton is best known for his breakout as Ashtray on HBO's "Euphoria." We also know that Netflix previously announced Elliot Page's character, Victor Hargreeves, will come out as trans in season three, too.
Netflix's official description of "The Umbrella Academy"'s new season reads: "Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad's new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?"
