The Umbrella Academy season 3 is just around the corner, although filming is yet to be wrapped up, at least we now know that we’re getting a third installment of the series and it’s happening sooner than you think.
The Umbrella Academy is a Netflix Original superhero/dramedy series. The creator of the series is Steve Blackman, based on the comic book of the same title by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. The second season of the series was released on July 31, 2020, and was nominated for Emmy Awards for four different categories. The series achieved instant glory among the audiences and it’s as if you keep wanting for more. But guess what? Season 3 is heading our way. Let’s find out more about the third instalment and what it has in store for us. Read the article till the end.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date
Netflix confirmed that production kicked off in February 2021, and Elliot Page posted on Instagram the same month and revealed that he was back on set. Although it’s pretty much unclear when filming will wrap up, according to the Deadline reports, filming is supposed to finish by the end of 2021.
But of course, there are some hindrances because of Covid-19 which can delay the production process. In an interview with Collider, Tom Hopper (as Luther aka number one) disclosed that the third season’s production is much slower due to the pandemic.
He added, “We’re not that far into it at the moment, so we’ve got a long way to go,” Hopper said. “But it’s good. The great thing is the material, the work is amazing, so every day on set is like I say, a joy and so much fun.”
If the production completes by the end of 2021, we might probably get to see the third season air in early 2022, that is if there are no delays due to Covid-19. Fingers crossed!

During the Geeked Week, mainly for Netflix’s fan event, Blackman did a Q&A in which he revealed that there will be a total of 10 episodes for The Umbrella Academy. He also revealed the titles of the episodes for season 3. They are:
