Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy showrunner Steve Blackman has taken to Instagram to announce that the upcoming third season of the highly-popular superhero series has wrapped filming via a set video of the main recurring cast.
The video features Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, Robert Sheehan, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, David Castañeda, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore, who play the members of the dysfunctional Hargreeves family announcing the wrapping of season three. “I don’t think the world’s ready for this,” Raver-Lampman says in the video. “I think it’s our best season yet.”
Based on the comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the third season of The Umbrella Academy is set to focus on The Umbrella Academy taking on The Sparrow Academy after the dysfunctional family changed the future to prevent doomsday in 1963 – accidentally causing an alternate timeline. The Sparrow Academy is led by Ben, played by Justin H. Min, one of the original members of the Umbrella Academy who died when he was young.
The upcoming season will feature newcomers Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, and Cazzie David as The Sparrow Academy alongside returning stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castaneda, Aidan Gallagher and Colm Feore. There is currently no release date for the latest season.
