The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date confirmed as Netflix confirms where new episodes will take place

THE third installment of the Umbrella Academy finally has a release date, albeit a vague one.

Season three of the show, which is based on a number of comics and graphic novels written by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, will arrive sometime in 2022.

The Umbrella Academy will be back for a third series in 2022

The release date may still be somewhat uncertain, but Netflix has dropped a major clue as to the backdrop of the third season.

In the season three teaser, a hotel bell can be seen ringing in an apparent nod to Hotel Oblivion – the title and setting of the third novel.

The teaser might not offer much by the way of spoilers but the show’s creator, Steve Blackman, has dropped a few hints of what might be to come.

Speaking to DigitalSpy, he revealed that our heroes “should be able to relax now, but something’s not quite right as they’ve come back.”

“Not only are these people saying they’re the Sparrow Academy, but Hargreeves is still alive – and he shouldn’t be, either.”

He also hinted that the newest series might be the most exciting yet.

“There’s some very big surprises with the family this year.”

“There are some amazing changes that people will love to sort of dig into, and there’s a lot of growth for the family this year in a way that people are not going to expect.”

Series three was announced in November 2020 – but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, production didn’t kick off until February 2021.

Juno star Elliot Page confirmed that filming for series three had finally come to an end in August 2021.

All of the setbacks mean fans are going to have an extended wait for new episodes but, if Steve Blackman’s comments are anything to go by, it looks like it’s going to be worth it.
