The future of The Umbrella Academy has remained somewhat uncertain following the conclusion of Season 2, as a third season has not been officially announced.
Despite the lack of announcements, a Production Weekly report suggests that Season 3 of the series will begin filming on Feb. 1. 2021 and is scheduled to be completed in August 2021. The report states that the entirety of production will take place in Toronto. It should be noted that the release of such details do not confirm that The Umbrella Academy will see a return to screens. As of yet, Netflix has not confirmed the show’s renewal.
Both seasons of the Netflix series have released to widely positive critical reception. The streaming giant reported that the first season was streamed by 45 million viewers within the first month and became Netflix’s third most popular series in 2019.
Season 2 was released in 2020 and saw the Hargreeves children hurled back across the 1960s in the aftermath of the explosive Season 1 finale. While searching for a way back to their own time, the family is forced to defend themselves against Swedish assassins and the Commission, all while trying to prevent major alterations to history by ensuring that the Kennedy assassination occurs. The season ended with the Hargreeves returning to the present, only to find that the world has once again changed and the Umbrella Academy is no more– it has now been replaced by the Sparrow Academy, led by none other than a seemingly resurrected Ben Hargreeves.
