‘The Umbrella Academy’: Where to Find All 43 Hidden Sparrows in Season 2

If you’re a fan of The Umbrella Academy, you’ve probably watched season 2 over again to try and find all of the hidden sparrows showrunners hinted at. Were you able to find them all?

Here’s a list of every hidden sparrow in season 2 of The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy is now the Sparrow Academy? 

Season 2 concluded with the biggest cliffhanger in Umbrella Academy history. Just when fans thought the Hargreeves siblings made it back to 2019, they immediately found out something was off. 

Not only was Sir Reginald (Colm Feore) alive — so was Ben (Justin H. Min). 

After losing Ben in one of the most heartbreaking scenes of season 2, fans were glad to see his return, but something was different about him. The edgier-looking Ben appeared to be the leader of the new Sparrow Academy — a fresh group of superhero recruits, including the likes of a mysterious green cube. 

What does the Sparrow Academy mean for the Hargreeves? Fans will have to wait for another season to find out.

Season 2 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ was riddled with hidden sparrows 

Showrunner Steve Blackman encouraged fans to keep their eyes peeled for hidden sparrows throughout the second season.

“There are 43 sparrows hidden throughout season 2,” Blackman shared on social media. “Can you find them all?”

“Bet you can’t…” he captioned the post. But one fan did — and shared the location of every sparrow on Twitter.
