The Umbrella Academy season 3 is bringing a lot of twists and turns, considering the major turn of events at the end of season 2. The massive cliffhanger was an alteration of the timeline has led to the undoing deaths of Sir Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) and Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min). Then, the situation gets complicated when they returned to the present-day timeline.
The Hargreeves siblings found out that they changed the present day and created an alternate timeline, wherein their adoptive father Sir Reginald Hargreeves created The Sparrow Academy instead of The Umbrella Academy. This event is going to be the season opener of the third installment and the first episode, “Meet The Family,” sees the introduction of the new Hargreeves siblings.
As part of Netflix’s Geeked Week announcements, the streaming giant dropped all the titles of the 10-episode series. In “Meet The Family,” the original version of the Hargreeves family will meet their counterpart in the alternate timeline. There’ll be chaos coming along the way as the titular academy squares up to The Sparrow Academy, which is briefly mentioned at the end of season 2.
Apart from the introduction of the new Hargreeves family and The Sparrow Academy, other titles teased more stories coming in The Umbrella Academy season 3. For instance, episode 4 is titled “Kugelblitz,” which is a reference to a black hole created from radiation. Considering the sci-fi genre of the series and incorporation of time travel, the inclusion of a black hole in the next chapter isn’t surprising at all.
Episode 7 will be called “Auf Wiedersehen,” which means “goodbye” in German. The major concern here is that the title seemingly indicates that one of the characters bids his/her farewell. On the other hand, episode 8, titled “Wedding at the End of the World,” brings the series’ apocalyptic theme and the Hargreeves' attempt to prevent it from happening.
The finale episode of The Umbrella Academy season 3 is titled “Oblivion,” which strongly hints that the upcoming installment won’t conclude on a happy note. The Sparrow Academy and the Hargreeves’ counterparts in the alternate timeline will be the major focus of the story. It’s interesting to see how the siblings work together to put everything back into the right place.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 official release date hasn’t been set as of this writing.
