The Umbrella Academy” continued in June 2022 with season 3 on streaming service Netflix. There will also be The Umbrella Academy Season 4, but with it the story of the Hargreeves siblings comes to an end. Now showrunner Steven Blackman has given fans the unpleasant news of a shorter final season. AWSMONE has summarized all the information for you below.

  • “The Umbrella Academy” is entering a final 4th season on the streaming service Netflix.
  • Now, series creator Steven Blackman has surprisingly announced that the upcoming final season will consist of fewer episodes.
  • However, Blackman already has further plans for the future and is devoting himself to a “Horizon Zero Dawn” series next.

Fans had to wait almost two years for the new Netflix adventures of the Hargreeves siblings around Elliot Page’s Viktor. With the 3rd season, The Umbrella Academy again delivers plenty of time travel chaos, superhero family drama and nothing less than the end of the world.

Production for the fourth season of “The Umbrella Academy” is underway – but after that it’s finally over. When you can expect the final episodes and what happens next, you can read here.

An exact start has not yet been determined, but for fans, the wait for the new season is peppered with unpleasant messages. Not only will the new episodes be the last, they will also be considerably fewer than usual. What else we know about the new season, we’ll tell you now.

After three seasons, Netflix users still haven’t had enough of the superpower-ridden Hargreeves siblings. However, if you are already looking forward to a new adventure, you will have to live with a drop of bitterness, because the fourth season The Umbrella Academy will conclude the series. It is not yet known when the new episodes will start on the streaming service. Initially, we had hoped for a start in spring 2023, but now we are more likely to assume a date at the end of 2023/beginning of 2024. We’ll keep you posted on the latest news about the shoot and the Netflix launch.

If you want to learn more about the Umbrella Academy as soon as possible and bridge the waiting time in a meaningful way, you should order Gerard Way’s comic book template on Amazon.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Finale comes shortened

Showrunner Steve Blackman confirmed in a Twitter post that The Umbrella Academy Season 4 of the superhero series will only have six episodes instead of the usual ten. But he also promises that we will love them. So hopefully we can look forward to a furious finale, even if the end of the season is shorter than expected.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: What could happen next?

The popular Netflix series “The Umbrella Academy” is based on the comics of the same name by “My Chemical Romance” singer Gerard Way, which is why it’s possible to speculate about what might happen next even without any information about a further season. In an interview with Forbes in 2020, Way revealed that he was currently working on a fourth comic. The new issue also already has a title: “Sparrow Academy”.

Unfortunately, the singer and writer could not reveal what will happen in the new comic and when it will conquer the stores and online stores of the world. However, the end of “Umbrella Academy” Season 3 hints at what might happen next in the series. The Hargreeves siblings will have to start all over again. In the next season, it may be even harder for them to set the world straight again.

A new world that could cause problems

When Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) pressed the red button, she enabled Reginald to make his world a reality. In this new reality, he seems to own the entire town and his beloved wife is also alive. Allison has also regained her happiness, not only is she reunited with her daughter, Raymond – her husband from the 1960s – is her daughter’s father and lives together with them in the present day.

In her decision to make a deal with her father, however, Allison didn’t think about her siblings. Although she was able to save the other Hargreeves from death, nothing is the same as it was before. Instead of staying together and finding a solution, the Hargreeves split up again to pursue their own goals. Where these will lead them cannot be said at this point. However, the fourth season will definitely bring the siblings back together.

Post-credit scene raises more questions

For those who already had numerous questions at the end of “The Umbrella Academy” season 3, the post-credit scene won’t have made them any smarter. Another version of Ben is seen in a subway in South Korea. He is reading a book with a smile, but it remains unclear what this Ben is all about. That this is not the Ben of the Sparrow Academy, one may currently strongly suspect. Because from the style of dress and behavior can be recognized strong differences. So is there another Ben or is it the Ben of Umbrella Academy?

Radiotimes has come up with a clever thesis in this regard: Because Reginald has assumed that his adopted children will die in the creation of his new world, he has planned for more versions of them. However, they are never adopted by him and thus live with their actual families. If this theory is true, the “real” Hargreeves will possibly meet their doppelgangers* and fans can already look forward to an Amish Klaus.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Will the cast return?

The group photo released at the start of production (see above) shows the Hargreeves family united. Viewers can look forward to a reunion with Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Luther (Tom Hopper), Alison and Co. For the big series finale, the cast list will be refreshed a bit: According to Variety, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, who will embody the academic couple Gene and Jean Thibedeau, are new. In addition, we will see David Cross in the role of the sincere but reserved businessman Sy Grossman.

Usually, Netflix waits a few weeks after launch before deciding whether to renew a series. In the case of The Umbrella Academy, ordering another season is only a matter of time – after all, it’s one of the streamer’s most successful original series. As soon as there is new information about the renewal for The Umbrella Academy Season 4, we will add it here.

In an interview with TVLine, series creator Steve Blackman already let slip that his original plan for the Netflix series could soon be complete: “I’ve pitched 4 seasons and I know the beginning, middle and end”

So with season 4, The Umbrella could already reach a planned end point. Furthermore, Blackman also states that Netflix could possibly call for more seasons.

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to tell from the comic book when and how The Umbrella Academy could be finished, because the Netflix series has long since overtaken it and has already moved a long way away from it in terms of content.
