‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 Release Date Revealed At SXSW 2022

We knew that the Sparrows were coming. Now we know when they will arrive. This morning at SXSW, showrunner Steve Blackman told the crowd that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will hit Netflix on June 22nd. No we didn’t get a trailer, but we did get a date reveal video and a couple of Episode 1 photos.

By know, we pretty much know what to expect from Season 3. Still, it was nice to get an official synopsis from Netflix today: “After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?”
