Based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy stars Elliot Page as Vanya/Number Seven, Tom Hopper as Luther/ Number One, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison/ Number Three, Robert Sheehan as Klaus/ Number Four, David Castañeda as Diego/ Number Two, Aidan Gallagher as Number Five, and Justine H. Min as Ben/ Number Six.
Last season, Five warned his family (so, so many times) that using his powers to escape from Vanya’s 2019 apocalypse was risky. Well, he was right – the time jump scatters the siblings in time in and around Dallas, Texas. Over a three-year period. Starting in 1960. Some, having been stuck in the past for years, have built lives and moved on, certain they’re the only ones who survived. Five is the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which – spoiler alert! – turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline (déjà vu, anyone?).
Now the Umbrella Academy must find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins. But seriously, no pressure or anything.
Season 3 will also introduce the Sparrow Academy consists of Justin H. Min as a different Ben, Justin Cornwell (I Am the Night) as Marcus, Britne Oldford (Hunters) as Fei, Jake Epstein (Suits) as Alphonso, Genesis Rodriguez (Big Hero 6) as Sloane, and Cazzie David as Jayme as well as an Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube playing the role of Christopher.
The Umbrella Academy is created and executive produced by Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon). Executive producers Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá along with Jeff F. King (Hand of God), Bluegrass Television, and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment.
