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.
Since filming for the third season has officially finished, we can expect a release in January 2022 as confirmed by Elliot Page.
According to a source close to the Netflix project, it seems that the showmakers already have the scripts written for season 4. The sources also dropped a few hints that Netflix has also started prepping for the fourth instalment and it was confirmed to be in development.
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.
