Yes, there will be a season 4 of The Umbrella Academy. Netflix has officially given the green signal for another run.
The Umbrella Academy is a superhero American television series created by Steve Blackman and developed by Jeremy Slater. The Netflix show is based on the comic book of the exact title penned by Gerard Way.
According to reports, showrunner Steve Blackman signed a deal with the streaming giant last year. The show’s two seasons was a hit among the audiences receiving tons of love and critical acclaim and with each season it had around 43 million viewers. That explains the early renewal for the fourth season by Netflix.
What is the show about?
The show follows a mysterious event that takes place in a world where around 43 women give birth all at the same time at noon on October 1, 1989, and what’s even more strange and unusual is that none of these women showed any signs of pregnancy until labor started. Out of the 43 children, seven were taken in by a billionaire named Sir Reginald Hargreeves. The Hargreeves siblings have then turned into a team of superheroes who calls themselves “The Umbrella Academy.”
The cast members of The Umbrella Academy are Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Cameron Britton, Mary J. Blige, John Magaro, Adam Godley, Colm Feore, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, Yusuf Gatewood, Marin Ireland, and Kate Walsh.
Is Season 4 of The Umbrella Organisation in the works?
Netflix renewed the series for another season not too long ago but season 4 is still very much in the works although not much is known when it will arrive since production for the third season of the series wrapped up in July 2021 and is rumoured to have a total of 10 episodes.
According to multiple production sources, production on the fourth and final season of “The Umbrella Academy” began on February 6th, 2023 and is scheduled to run through May 19th, 2023. The cast has also shared photos on social media to confirm that they have started filming. The upcoming Season 4 will reportedly have an abbreviated run of only six episodes. Fans can expect to see more of the reset universe that was glimpsed at the end of the Season 3 finale
Umbrella Academy Season 4: What to expect?
We might have to wait a little longer for this. Well, first of all, season 3 has not even aired yet and details on season 4 is still a far cry. Hopefully, by next year when the production for the fourth instalment commences, we’ll have more updates and what the show’s up to.
But we now know that season 4 is in the works and if a show is really popular, Netflix usually tends to go for at least a four-season run. This is also the reason why Netflix decided to renew it since the series has proven to be widely popular with its subscribers.
While we wait, The Umbrella Academy Season 1 & 2 is available to stream on Netflix. Season 3 premieres on June 22, 2022.
