The Umbrella Academy at Netflix Geeked
Nov 19, 2023
The fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy is confirmed to be the show’s last, and the cast discusses the upcoming final act in a new video shared by Netflix. Season three ends with a reset button that brings the Hargreeves siblings to a new timeline controlled by their father, Reginald, and without superpowers. The creator of The Umbrella Academy, Steve Blackman, reveals that the tyrannical Sir Reginald Hargreeves did not achieve the exact results he wanted with the reset, and audiences can expect to see more of Sparrow Ben in season four.
Netflix Geeked has revealed a tease of what fans can expect from the fourth and final season of the hit superhero show, The Umbrella Academy. Starring Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, it was confirmed last year that season four will be the show’s last. In a new video shared by Netflix, the cast discuss the upcoming final act of the popular series.
The Umbrella Academy first began back in 2019 and is based on the Dark Horse comic by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. The first season of The Umbrella Academy picks up in 1989, when a highly unusual occurrence sees forty-three infants inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy. Seven of these mysterious babies are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world.
After hurling the Hargreeves siblings back in time and into 1960s Dallas, the third season picks up with the family in yet another timeline. This time around, The Umbrella Academy has been replaced by the Sparrow Academy, a smart, stylish, and better prepared version of the superhero family. The Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas, who quickly retreat to the mysterious Hotel Obsidian.
The Umbrella Academy season three ends with a literal pushing of the reset button, with the Hargreeves emerging in a new world controlled by their father, Reginald, and with no superpowers.
Starring an ensemble cast that includes Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher as the titular Umbrella Academy, all three seasons of the Netflix series have been met with much acclaim thanks to their unique approach to the superhero genre. Here’s hoping the final season will be a worthy end.

The Umbrella Academy Creator Has Revealed Certain Details About Season 4
The Umbrella Academy creator Steve Blackman has revealed certain details regarding the fourth and final season, including that the tyrannical Sir Reginald Hargreeves was not able to get the exact results he hoped for with his reset.
“It certainly is. But the siblings are always up for a challenge. This new timeline has been dictated by Hargreeves, who reprogrammed the Universe at the end of the Season 3 finale. But because of Allison’s actions, he didn’t get to finish what he started before Allison pressed the reset button.”
Blackman has also revealed that audiences will see a lot more from Justin H. Min’s Ben, who at this stage is the Sparrow Academy variant version.
“Let’s be clear — that is Sparrow Ben. The question you should really be asking yourself is what the f–k is he doing on a Korean subway train reading a book about pottery? Odd, right? Of course, it is! This is the Umbrella Academy. As every good Umbrella fan knows, no moment in the show exists in isolation. Everything we see has meaning. And this moment is no exception. Ben has a reason to be there… but you’ll have to wait until Season 4 to understand why.”
The Umbrella Academy season four will land on Netflix in 2024 with the first episode “The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want.”
