It’s been more than a year since The Umbrella Academy wrapped up its second season stuck in the 1960s with a cliffhanger right out of It’s a Wonderful Life and viewers were scratching their collective heads as to how this acclaimed series would press on for a third outing.
Now the time-warped clouds have lifted and we can finally be reunited with our favorite misfit clan made up of Luther, Allison, Diego, Klaus, Vanya, Number Five, and the spirit of Ben. But if you recall, as the gang teleported back from the Swingin’ Sixties where they averted a nuclear armageddon, the mansion they returned to is not the same sanctuary it once was. Due to some ripple in the space/time continuum, the deceased Reginald Hargreeves still lives, does not know his old family, and is now training a collection of metahumans called The Sparrow Academy.
Created by My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy began life as a series of Dark Horse comic books and graphic novels in 2007 centered around a quirky family of immaculately-conceived superheroes who were the crimefighting darlings of another era and once had their own tie-in comics and merchandise line before it all crumbled away.
