“The Umbrella Academy” Season 3 has officially wrapped up filming today in Toronto (August 27). Based on Dark Horse Comics and Created by Steve Blackman, the series started filming on 8th February this year.
Steve Blackman, the showrunner and creator, has directed one episode (finale) of the third season, he confirmed via Instagram on August 17. During the Netflix Geeked week in June, he also revealed the names of all ten episodes of season 3.
The name of the episodes are:
1. Meet the Family
2. World's Biggest Ball of Twine
3. Pocket Full of Lightning
5. Kindest Cut
7. Auf Widersehen

Before the beginning of production, Netflix also announced the new cast members who will be joining season 3 as part of the Sparrow Academy, which was introduced in the season 2 finale in an alternate 2019. Justin H. Min, Justin Cornwell, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, and destined-for-greatness actor known as “Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube” have joined The Umbrella Academy as this new motley crew with extraordinary abilities.

The production has just been completed on season 3 and it takes around 7-8 months to complete the post-production on a show, which has plenty of CGI effects. Also, if we go by the timeline of the previous seasons, The Umbrella Academy usually arrives every two years. So, we can expect ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 in May 2022 on Netflix.
At the end of the second season, When Sir Reginald Hargreeves' (Colm Feore) originally adopted children returned from their trip to the 1960s, they discovered that their disruption of the timeline had resulted in some major changes, including the creation of a new class of Sparrows, which included Ben (Justin H. Min), who had previously died.
In Season 2, Five was correct in telling his family that using his skills to escape Vanya's 2019 apocalypse was dangerous. The siblings are dispersed in time in and around Dallas as a result of the time leap. Some people have developed lives and moved on after being trapped in the past for years, believing that they are the only ones who have survived. Five is the last to arrive, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear apocalypse, which turns out to be the outcome of the group's temporal distortion.
Returning characters Vanya (Elliot Page), Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castaeda), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), and Five (Aidan Gallagher) will have to contend with these changes in the upcoming third season. Lila (Ritu Arya), Pogo (Adam Godley), and Hargreeves himself will all be back in the mix.
Steve Blackman also serves as executive producer alongside Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, and Jesse McKeown. Co-executive producers are Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the creators of the graphic novels that inspired this series. The show is produced for Netflix by UCP, a part of Universal Studio Group.
