The first season of The Umbrella Academy made its debut on Netflix in February 2019. After that, the second season of the show came out nearly after one and a half years at the end of July 2020.
Analyzing the above facts and keeping the effect of COVID-19 in mind, we can expect a bit of delay. Therefore, late 2021 or early 2022 is what we are assuming.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3: Official Trailer
From time to time we have received bits and pieces of information regarding the third season of the show through various reports and rumors.
However, we are yet to see the official trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 3. Well, based on our research we can say that you might get to see the official trailer of the show at the beginning of fall 2021.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 Ending
At the end of season 1, we saw that the entire Hargreeves family was unable to prevent the apocalypse and barely survived by time traveling to the 60s.
However, while doing so Number 5 realized that he had also brought the apocalypse in the same timeline.
Thankfully, at the end of season 2, all the siblings of the Hargreeves family stopped the apocalypse and saved the world. After that, they time traveled to their original time period in 2019.
That’s when the twist began.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Story
It turns out they have messed up the timeline and found Sparrow Academy in place of The Umbrella Academy with new family members except for Ben. But, unlike the old Ben, the new Ben of Sparrow Academy doesn’t seem to be a kind and charming guy.
Also, due to the alteration in the timeline, Sir Reginald Hargreeves was seen alive.
So, what could have happened that led to the replacement of The Umbrella Academy, and what will happen next? Here’s our theory —
As of now, we know from the second season that Reginald Hargreeves, the non-biological father of the members of Umbrella Academy, is an alien. In the first season, we learned that he already knew about the apocalypse.
In the second season, when his adopted kids Luther, Allison, Diego, Klaus, Vanya, and after Number 5 showed up he found that his adopted kids failed to prevent the end of the world.
Therefore, he formed a different academy with different kids and with a different name. Since he didn’t meet Ben in the second, it also explains why only Ben was there in the Sparrow Academy.
Now, it would be very interesting to see how previous members will go along with the Sparrow Academy.

As you can see in the tweet, there are five new faces apart from Ben (Justin H. Min). In addition, the seventh member of Sparrow Academy is a floating cube. Hence, it is confirmed that we will definitely see the third season of Umbrella Academy.
