This article discusses whether there will be a season 4 of the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy and its renewed or cancelled status. This article contains spoilers.
The Umbrella Academy is a time-traveling superhero series based on the comic-book franchise of the same name, created by musician Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance and artist Gabriel Ba. Now in its third season, this highly successful Netflix original seems to be going from strength to strength, with talk of spin-off shows and countless comic-book sequels. It all begs the question, will there be a fourth season of The Umbrella Academy, and what would that installment look like?
The third season focused on our lovable rogues returning to the present after saving the world in the swinging sixties. Their present timeline seems to have been altered slightly, though, with a new group of seven siblings homed in their mansion, which is now titled The Sparrow Academy. The old gang battle these replacements for supremacy while a raging, swirling vortex of doom found in the cellar starts to consume everything in its path. It’s an action-packed, cinematic delight filled with the show’s quintessential humor and whimsical despair. A real treat for fans and cynics alike.
Will there be a season 4 of the Netflix series The Umbrella Academy – renewed or cancelled status
Status: Rumored to be renewed
Many sites are already stating that a fourth season of The Umbrella Academy has been greenlit, although Netflix hasn’t made an official announcement just yet. There are rumors that creator Steve Blackman has signed the deal, and a script is currently in the works. The show has been extremely popular for the streaming giants and always garners positive reviews. Due to the third season’s blistering upshot in quality, it feels like a done deal. These are characters and worlds we have grown to love, and there is plenty more of this fantasy epic to explore.
Season three ended with most of the Sparrows either dead or missing in action, the Umbrellas having lost all of their godly powers and their villainous father now with an evidently monumental financial stronghold over the world. As with most superhero cliffhangers, there are many unanswered questions and lots more of this universe’s secrets to uncover. Season four will hopefully explore this new timeline and focus on the Umbrellas as they desperately try to regain their powers to help battle this new super-villain, Sir Reginald Hargreeves.
