Umbrella Academy Season 3 will consist of 10 one-hour episodes and will see the return of Steve Blackman as showrunner and executive producer. He’ll be joined by Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, and Jesse McKeown as executive producers.
Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore will all be reprising their roles from previous seasons.
Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the writer and artist of the comic book series the Netflix show is based on, will serve as co-executive producers. Production will kick off in February in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Season 2 of the Netflix series debuted earlier this year, on July 31, and received a glowing review from M Downey, scoring an 8/10: “Umbrella Academy Season 2 manages to thread the needle in a way fans will appreciate. It’s enough of the same to feel comfortable and familiar while bringing enough of the new to the table to remain exciting and engaging. It may take its time getting off the ground and struggle with some early pacing issues, but at the end of the day its massive heart and lovable characters will sell you on even the clumsy pieces.”
The series takes place in a world where 43 women gave birth at the exact same time in 1989–even though none of them showed any signs of being pregnant. Reginald Hargreeves adopted seven of them and made them into a superhero team. In present day, the long-estranged siblings are brought back together after their adopted father has died.
