What is the plot?
Season two ended with the Hargeeves siblings returning to the present day following their adventures in the 60s.
The siblings discover that the present has changed, with their adopted father Sir Reginald Hargreeves alive but he has formed a different group of supernaturals called The Sparrow Academy.
The new academy includes their brother Ben, who in their reality died when he was a teenager.
Hargreeves siblings Fei, Alphonso, Marcus, Sloane, and Jayme will also be a part of the Sparrow Academy.
Vanya's love interest Sissy (Marin Ireland) and Allison's husband Raymond (Yusuf Gatewood) stayed behind in the '60s which means that their stories in the show could be over.
When questioned about the plot of the latest instalment of The Umbrella Academy, Elliot told Netflix: 'One of the delightful things about the show is as we read the scripts, a lot of things are unknown to us.
‘So I feel like there's always delightful surprises.’
At the end of season two, viewers were led to believe that The Handler (played by Kate Walsh) is dead and The Commission is now free.
The Handler's daughter, Lila, managed to flee but will she stand with The Umbrella Academy or use her superpowers against them in series three?
What are the episode titles for season three?
The episode titles for season three of the show were released back in June 2021 by Netflix at their online TUDUM event.
The titles are as follows:
- Meet the Family- World’s Biggest Ball of Twine- Pocket Full of Lightning- Kugelblitz- Kindest Cut- Marigold- Auf Wiedersehen- Wedding at the End of the World- Six Bells- Oblivion
Will there be a season four?
Although series three is yet to be released, The Umbrella Academy has received a green light for a fourth season.
Creator Steve Blackman signed an overall output deal with Netflix in 2020, which could explain the early renewal of the show.
It is likely that season four will be announced during the premiere of series three.
