Based upon the titular comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, a popular singer known for his My Chemical Romance, The Umbrella Academy has risen to be one of the most critically acclaimed series, spread across three seasons, with the fourth season renewed on August 25, 2022. Loosely based on the third book of the comic book series The Umbrella Academy: The Hotel Oblivion, the third season has piqued the excitement of the viewers, especially with its cliffhanger ending. The series creator, Steve Blackman mentioned that he is well aware of what he wants to do for The Umbrella Academy season 4 in a conversation with The Wrap.
With the fourth season sealing the fate of the show, the wait for the series to drop on Netflix is ricocheting the levels of patience, especially when the chances of the season does not release on the streaming giant in 2023 at all seem higher than ever before. For those unversed, here’s the official synopsis of The Umbrella Academy season 4 (courtesy of Rotten Tomatoes):
“On one day in 1989, 43 infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who creates the Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.”

When will The Umbrella Academy season 4 arrive on Netflix?
Concerning the release date of season 4 of this teen drama series, Netflix Life reports, “We’re going to be waiting a while. In fact, we probably won’t see the season in 2023 at all. Filming won’t start until February 2023”. Corroborating with this news, Production Weekly has given The Umbrella Academy the code name “Kodiak”. The filming will reportedly happen in and around Toronto, Canada.
As per the previous reports, season 4 will constitute six episodes. So, we can presume that the filming process would finish by the summer. Be that as it may, the season will not arrive until the end of the year. But since a show like this would harbor a huge post-production process, we might not get to watch the season until early 2024.
