The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Filming for the new season of The Umbrella Academy had to be put on hold due to the spread of COVID, so fans had to wait two full years for the release of season three. Ten new Season 3 episodes were released on Netflix in June (and you can catch up on a season two recap here). The following contains spoilers.
The third season of Netflix’s adaptation of the beloved novel about the Hargreeves siblings, who were adopted as children, continues from where the second season finale left off. The Hargreeves discover another set of superpowered siblings, the Sparrow Academy when they return to The Umbrella Academy.
Without their former abilities, the Hargreeves are on a challenging journey with many mysteries to solve. A fourth season of the superhero show is already much desired by its audience.
When Was The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Confirmed?
Netflix has confirmed the fourth season of The Umbrella Academy, while the premiere date is unknown at this time. It’s possible to guess, though: Nearly two years passed between Seasons 2 and 3, and about a year and a half passed between Seasons 1 and 2. New episodes should premiere between December 2023 and June 2024, given that Season 3 premiered in June 2022. Read Below about what the Creators of The Umbrella Academy say.
What Have The Creators Of The Umbrella Academy Revealed About The Upcoming Fourth Season?
Showrunner Steve Blackman of The Umbrella Academy has announced an exciting development. On Twitter, the show’s producer addressed speculation that season four of the Netflix series might feature fewer episodes than usual (10 episodes) for the series.
While the news is disappointing, it isn’t *too* bad because Blackman has promised that readers will “enjoy” the forthcoming installments. We have no reason to suspect otherwise!
Blackman paraphrased a tweet from a supporter,
It’s true. But you’re going to love them. https://t.co/jV9ysCcPK0

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Storyline
We don’t have a trailer or synopsis for season 4 of The Umbrella Academy just yet, but based on how the previous season ended, we can guess at some of the story beats that will likely be explored. Additionally, this is the show’s last season, so hopefully, we’ll receive some answers. Season 4 will only contain six episodes, and showrunner Steve Blackman has confirmed (opens in new tab) that this is the case (rather than 10, like the previous three seasons).
The consequences of the Hargreeves’ universe-resetting plan will be explored, among other things, in the season three finale. In addition, there’s a moment in the middle of the credits that suggests Umbrella Ben is back, but we still have Sparrow Ben to consider. Who knows, maybe we’ll get additional details about the death of Umbrella Ben.

Meanwhile, Luther is searching for Sloane, who vanished at the end of Season 3, and Reginald’s dead wife Abigail has apparently returned from the grave.
Seeing as how Ray, Alison’s husband from 1963, shows up in the current day at the end of Season 3, we may infer this has something to do with the bargain Reginald struck with her, and we may find out the specifics of this arrangement. Oh, and we can also predict with a fair degree of certainty that the end of the world is imminent.
After posting a photo of the script’s first page on Instagram(opens in new tab) with the caption “And so it begins… one last time,” showrunner Steve Blackman confirmed that the season opener would be titled “The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want.” To know about the cast of The Umbrella Academy Season 4 cast, keep reading.
For The Upcoming The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Cast
Now that our wishes have been granted and a new series has been approved, it stands to reason that the complete Umbrella Academy will appear in it. Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castaeda), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Five (Aidan Gallagher), and Viktor (Aidan Gallagher) are all part of this ensemble (played by Elliot Page).
With the loss of the family’s superpowers, we have a sneaking suspicion that we may see the passing of select members into the hereafter. The future of the third sibling, Allison (portrayed by Emmy Raver-Lampman), was also kept unclear. Will she still be alive when season three concludes?
It’s also anticipated to feature Ritu Arya’s Lila and Justin H. Min’s Ben. Sloane, Luther’s (Genesis Rodriguez) wife, has also vanished, and her return is up in the air. Now, what about that school called The Sparrow? Once again, we have no idea who might turn up, so we’ll have to wait and see if Justin Cornwell (Marcus), Justin H. Min (Ben), Britne Oldford (Fei), Jake Epstein (Alphonso), Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane), or Cazzie David (Jayme) make an appearance.
