You’ll be having questions like, What on earth is Sparrow Academy? What happened to Harlan? Are there more people with superpowers? What’s up with Lila? How did Ben die and how is he still alive? Is another apocalypse on the way? How did the Hargreeves siblings screw up the timeline, again?

Don’t worry, Netflix listens! (at least most of the time). Prepare to have all of your questions answered because The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is on its way.

What can we expect from The Umbrella Academy Season 3?

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 finale introduced us to the Sparrow Academy, a new group formed by Reginald in an alternative universe in which our heroes now live. Considering the new group of super-powered siblings is being introduced at the very end, we will get to meet this new squad. This has also been confirmed by the showrunner, Steve Blackman, as he revealed the title of the first episode of Season 3, Meet The Family.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 has also confirmed that the next installment of the show will feature the mysterious Hotel Oblivion, which also happens to be the title of Gerard Way’s third Umbrella Academy comic book.

Meanwhile, Netflix has unveiled all of the episode titles.

Character descriptions provided by Netflix

Justin Cornwell will play Marcus, Sparrow #1

 A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and demanding, Marcus keeps the family together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong. Marcus is disciplined, rational and in control. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.

 Justin H. Min who plays Ben Hangreevs Sparrow #2

This is not the sweet Ben we know and love. This Ben is a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy body with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant— Ben is determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs.

Britne Oldford will play Fei, Sparrow #3

Fei sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you. But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done.

Jake Epstein will play Alphonso, Sparrow #4.

Years of crime fighting have left his face and body with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of humor. The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face, is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.

Genesis Rodriguez will play Sloane, Sparrow #5

A romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing. But obligations to her family keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line. But Sloane has plans… and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.

 Cazzie David  will play Jayme, Sparrow #6

Jayme is a loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl. Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows. Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.

Existential dread-inducing psykronium cube will play Christopher, Sparrow #7

Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator. Trustworthy, loyal, and is treated by the Sparrows like any other sibling, Christopher is a force to be reckoned with.

 In addition, Euphoria star Javon Walton, who plays fan-favorite Ashtray, will join the new cast.

Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, and Robert Sheehan will be returning as members of the Umbrella Academy. Colm Feore will also be returning as Sir Reginald Hargreeves.
