After the mind-bending finale of the most recent season, it looked all but certain that a third season would be on the way for 'The Umbrella Academy'.
Today, Netflix confirmed that a third season is now on its way, with production expected to begin in Toronto in February of next year. The series, based on the comics by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá - sees a group of super-powered misfits who reunite to solve the murder of their adopted father, and in the process, halt an impending apocalypse that sees them time-travel to the '60s.

It's a lot to take in, but trust us, the show is an absolute must-watch. Not only that, the cast is hugely impressive, with names like Ellen Page, our own Robert Sheehan, Tom Hopper, and Mary J. Blige. Indeed, Netflix reported that some 45 million households watched the first season within the first month of release.
Ellen Page as Vanya, Tom Hopper as Luther, David Castañeda as Diego, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, Aidan Gallagher as Number Five, Justin H. Min as Ben and Colm Feore as Sir Reginald are all slated to return in their respective roles too.
As for a release date, Netflix haven't yet confirmed any details on that, but our guess it'll likely be some time in late 2021.
