With filming wrapped, the Netflix series is gearing up for a season three release later this year.

Seven new character posters from 'The Umbrella Academy' season three have been released by Netflix this week, giving us a backside glimpse at the returning characters.

Following on from that trippy season two finale, the Hargreeves family have been transported into an alternate universe where they no longer exist - and The Sparrow Academy is living in their home house. This alternative timeline saw their father Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Fiore) adopt a different collection of children with superpowers from a young age, all newbies except for Ben (Justin H Min) - who is alive and well.

Previous 'Umbrella Academy' posters focussed on these new additions, but this time around the returning cast get to shine. Or, at least, their backs get to shine.

In the posters below we see Tom Hopper as the big brute with a marshmallow heart, Luther; David Castañeda as the fiery Diego; Emmy Raver-Lampman as the controlling yet meaning well Allison; Robert Sheehan as the tearaway Klaus; Aidan Gallagher as the old man trapped inside a teenager's body, Number Five; with Elliot Page as the unexpectedly powerful Vanya. Rounding out the lineup is Ritu Arya, who starred as Lila in season two.

Here are all seven posters from 'The Umbrella Academy' season three, featuring the characters holding umbrellas that wouldn't last a minute in the Irish weather.

On January 1, the series released new character posters for the brand new additions to the cast for season three. The Sparrow Academy will be made up of Marcus (Justin Cornwell), a returning Ben (Justin H Min), Fei (Britne Oldford), Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), Jayme (Cazzie David), and finally Christopher (an Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube).

Filming on the upcoming season wrapped back in October of 2021, so fans of the series shouldn't expect to have to wait too much longer for the next instalment to hit Netflix. The 10-episode season has already revealed the title of each episode - and someone is getting married. Stay tuned for more announcements about season three in the coming months.
