UMBRELLA ACADEMY. Will the Netflix series Umbrella Academy be entitled to a season 4? Date, plot… The latest announcements.
[Mis à jour le 24 juin 2022 à 15h42] Umbrella Academy is the program currently binge-watched by subscribers on netflix. Season 3 was released on June 22 and offered many twists and turns for this dysfunctional family of superheroes, who must once again prevent the apocalypse. For the time being, the series has not yet been renewed for a season 4 … However, this does not mean that Umbrella Academy will not be entitled to a sequel, but simply that Netflix has not made any announcement going in this direction.
Creator Steve Blackman told ScreenRant that he “already knows what Season 4 will be about.” However, it will be necessary to wait a little bit before it is started: “We cross our fingers, we hope that Netflix will order the sequel, but we will have to wait and advise, like everyone else”. But, knowing the popular success of the series, it seems unlikely that Netflix will decide not to renew Umbrella Academy. If the series is ever renewed, it seems unlikely to discover a new burst of episodes before 2024.
Umbrella Academy is an American superhero television series seen in streaming on Netflix. Created in 2019, it currently has two seasons, of which a third is in preparation.

Season 3 : The Hargreeves are back on April 2, 2019, the day after the Apocalypse. But they discover that their world has changed a lot: their father, Reginald Hargreeves, is alive, just like Ben. But he has changed a lot… The Umbrella Academy never existed, since their father created the Sparrow Academy. Once again, our heroes have completely altered space-time.
Elliot Page came out as transgender on December 2, 2020. This announcement comes ahead of the release of Season 3 of the Netflix series. At first, the creators of the series support the actor but announce that this will not have an impact on the character he plays in Umbrella Academy. But they end up changing their minds, deciding that their character should be a trans man who is now called Viktor. “The scripts were already wrapped up, and production was going to start within two weeks. We had to figure out how to incorporate the story of his transition into the plot of this choral series, explained screenwriter Thomas Page McBee with Esquire. His trans identity had to exist as a texture of the character, but not as a defining trait.” The writers thus worked in concert with Elliot Page to offer the character and the public a plot as intimate as it was right for this fundamental member of the Hargreeves family: “It was an opportunity to show a transition that is so organic, so fundamental for that character, that it exists alongside the existing character story arcs, without eclipsing them.”
