‘The Umbrella Academy’ recap 

The Umbrella Academy follows a family of super-siblings destined to save the world from the apocalypse. In season 1, Five (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Luther (Tom Hopper), Diego (David Castañeda), and Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) must work together to stop Vanya’s (Elliot Page) apocalypse. 

Five manages to use his powers and save his entire family in the knick of time — a major risk, considering season 2 finds the Hargreeves scattered across time in and around Dallas, Texas. They spend various lengths of the 1960s believing they are the sole survivors of Five’s escape.

But when Five lands in the middle of a nuclear doomsday caused by the group’s disruption of the timeline, the Hargreeves must find a way to reunite and put a stop to yet another apocalypse as the Umbrella Academy. At the end of season 2, fans learn of the mysterious Sparrow Academy. Season 3 should clarify who these alternate Hargreeves siblings are, including that Green Cube Christopher.

‘The Umbrella Academy’ cast reportedly set to wrap filming for season 3 

According to an Umbrella Academy updates account on Twitter, season 3 will wrap filming on Aug. 7. “The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is due to finish filming Aug. 7!” the account tweeted on July 20. 

‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 release date 

The Umbrella Academy’s release dates vary from season to season. The show debuted on Netflix in February 2019. Meanwhile, season 2 of The Umbrella Academy came out on July 31, 2020. 

Now that fans know when the third season will wrap, many have focused their attention on when to expect new episodes. Netflix has yet to make an official announcement regarding the release of season 3. However, based on what we know, fans can likely expect new episodes of The Umbrella Academy in the spring or early summer of 2022.

What to expect from ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 3 

So far, we know very little about what will happen to the Hargreeves in season 3 of the Netflix series. But what we do know are the names of the episodes in The Umbrella Academy Season 3:

  • Episode 301: “Meet the Family” 
  • Episode 302: “World’s Biggest Ball of Twine” 
  • Episode 303: “Pocket Full of Lightning”
  • Episode 304: “Kugelblitz”
  • Episode 305: “Kindest Cut”
  • Episode 306: “Marigold” 
  • Episode 307: “Auf Wiedersehen” 
  • Episode 308: “Wedding at the End of the World”
  • Episode 309: “Six Bells”
  • Episode 10: “Oblivion” 

Right now, many fans are concerned about episodes with names like “Kugelblitz” and “Auf Wiedersehen.” A kugelblitz is a black hole caused by radiation, while “Auf Wiedersehen” is “goodbye” in German.

Since both words are of Germanic origins, many fans are most worried about Klaus. “Klaus centric, pain and suffering,” one Twitter account speculates regarding episode 7 of season 3. “Germany. Closure.” Other fans on Reddit think the episode might focus on Klaus saying goodbye to Dave (Cody Ray Thompson).
