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?”
