Season 4 will be “going toward an endgame” according to showrunner Steve Blackman.
WARNING: This post contains spoilers for Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy.
Want to know what’s happening with Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy Season 4? Read on to find out — but first, a little refresher on how Season 3 ended…
In the Season 3 finale of The Umbrella Academy, there was, as usual, a huge, universe-resetting moment — this time quite literally, with the characters finding themselves in an entirely new world and timeline.
Allison, who Sir Reginald had made a deal with, turned against him at the last moment to save her siblings, killing Sir Reginald — but then resetting the universe herself anyway.
There are some other significant changes in the new universe: Sloane disappeared, and Sir Reginald now seems to own, like, all of New York City (and/or the world?) — plus, his wife Abigail is now alive.
The Umbrella Academy crew went their separate ways, with Luther on a quest to find Sloane, Klaus chasing after him, a pregnant Lila and Diego running off together, and everyone else dispersing alone — including Sparrow Ben, who turned up in Korea looking very different in the mid-credits scene.
Showrunner Steve Blackman has pitched Season 4 to Netflix.
Blackman added that in addition to exploring the Umbrella Academy without powers, Season 4 will also be about how Hargreeves reprogrammed the universe, including the implications of his wife, Abigail, being alive.
“The intention is that this timeline, whatever we’re in now, has merged people from other timelines into one, and that may or may not have repercussions in the future,” Blackman said.
Blackman also hinted to The Wrap that if Season 4 happens, it might actually be the final one for The Umbrella Academy.
Stay tuned for more updates on Season 4!
