The complete filming schedule for the fourth and final season of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ has been officially revealed. The Netflix adaptation of the comic-books series will conclude with a much shorter season than fans would have expected.
Earlier, we thought that the episode count will be reduced from 10 to 8. but now we have got confirmation that the fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy will be only six episodes long. ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 4 will begin filming on February 6, 2023, in Toronto, Canada with Jeremy Webb returning as a director. The shortened season will wrap filming on its final day on May 19, 2023.
When the show was renewed for Season 4, it was confirmed that it will be shorter as the creators will be moving to a new project which also belongs to Netflix. At that time the episode count wasn't confirmed, but the latest six-episode revelation confirms that Netflix is in hurry to wrap up the show as soon as possible.
Seeing the filming duration of the show, ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 4 could premiere by the end of 2023.

In the Season 3 finale, everyone except Allison steps on the seven-star symbol, which activates the reset button but drains their powers. Allison kills Reginald and presses the reset button after realizing the process is killing them. Allison is reunited with Claire and Ray in the new universe, the Hotel Obsidian is gone, Luther is alive and no longer an ape-man, Five and Diego's severed limbs are recovered, Sloane is missing, and everyone has lost their powers. As the siblings divide, a resurrected Reginald surveys the city, which is now under his command, alongside his wife Abigail, who has resurrected. Ben rides the Seoul subway, which is similar to the one on which he was born, in a mid-credits scene.
In Season 3, after averting the apocalypse of 1963, the Umbrella Academy returns to the present, certain that they avoided the original apocalypse and repaired this godforsaken timeline once and for all. However, after a brief celebration, they find that things aren't quite as they left them. Then there's the Sparrow Academy. The Sparrows, who are smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, instantly clash with the Umbrellas in a violent confrontation that turns out to be the least of everyone's concerns. Having navigated their obstacles, losses, and surprises – as well as dealing with an unexplained destructive force wreaking havoc in the Universe - all they need to do now is persuade Dad's new and maybe better family to assist them in repairing the damage caused by their arrival.
