Read on to check out all the latest updates on The Umbrella Academy Season 3.
The Umbrella Academy is a superhero television series based on the comic book series of the same name written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. The series focuses on a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who come together to solve the mystery of their father’s death and the threat of an apocalypse.
It was created by Steve Blackman and developed by Jeremy Slater for Netflix. The series is highly popular among the audience, and it was the third most popular TV series on Netflix in 2019. In 2020, the series became the sixth most-watched show of that year, falling behind shows like The Queen’s Gambit and Ratched.
The first season of the series premiered on February 15, 2019, and the second season was released on July 31, 2020. Now, fans are waiting eagerly for the third season to see more of our superheroes and what new obstacles are awaiting them.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Umbrella Academy Season 3.
Is The Umbrella Academy Season 3 coming to Netflix in May?
No. The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is not coming in May. Are we surprised? No, because Netflix has officially announced the release date of the series, and it isn’t in May.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Release Date
The third season of the superhero adventure series is going to arrive on June 22, 2022, and it will answer many of the cliffhangers that were left shockingly at the end of Season 2 in 2020.

Filming for the third season was completed a while back, but the post-production process took a lot of time.
Everett Burrell, the visual effects supervisor, told Gold Derby, “It took months to prepare the apocalyptic vision featured in season 2″. He added: “Many of the feature-film effects tools have now trickled into the TV industry so that we can get bigger and more epic looking stuff… Every season, we must use the best and most up-to-date tools we can find”.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Trailer
As of now, there’s no trailer released for The Umbrella Academy Season 3. We expect the trailer to release somewhere near the release date. However, you can watch the trailer for the first season if you haven’t watched it yet.
Check out the trailer below:
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Plot
Here’s the official synopsis for The Umbrella Academy Season 3:
“After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns.
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?”
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Cast
In March 2022, it was announced that Euphoria’s Javon Walton joined the cast of The Umbrella Academy Season 3. “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!” Netflix tweeted from the service’s official account.
Other members include Justin Cromwell, who’ll be playing Marcus, Britne Oldford as Fei, Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane, Cazzie David as Jayme and Jake Epstein will play Alphonso. According to Netflix, the series has also cast an “existential dread-inducing-psykronium cube” to play the role of Christopher, one of the Sparrows. “Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin,” a character description reads. “He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear.” That should be interesting.
