    The Umbrella Academy” will be back in action for a third season.

    Netflix has officially renewed the popular superhero show for a third outing. News of the renewal comes just over three months after season 2 launched as the most-watched show on all of streaming in its first week, per Nielsen.

    The third season, which will once again consist of 10 hourlong episodes, is set to begin production in Feb. 2021 in Toronto, Canada.

    Season 2 cast members returning for season 3 include Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. Steve Blackman (whose other credits include “Fargo” and “Altered Carbon”) will return as showrunner and executive producer.
    “The Umbrella Academy” is based on the comic book series of the same name created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. Season 2 saw the titular siblings scattered in time in Dallas, Texas over a three year period. Five (Gallagher) was the last to land, smack dab in the middle of a nuclear doomsday, which turns out is a result of the group’s disruption of the timeline. As the third season played out, the Umbrella Academy had to find a way to reunite, figure out what caused doomsday, put a stop to it, and return to the present timeline to stop that other apocalypse. All while being hunted by a trio of ruthless Swedish assassins.

    Alongside Blackman, season 3 will be executive produced by Jeff F. King (who also directs), Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, and Jesse McKeown. Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá serve as Co-EPs. The show is produced by UCP for Netflix.

    What did you think of season 2?

    Was this actually worth getting into? I watched the first 3 episodes and kind of went meh. Maybe I need to drudge through a whole season.

    Probably not for you then. Three episodes is good enough to know if you'll like it or not.

    That's good.

    I still haven't gotten around to watching season 2 yet. I was waiting for my wife to finally finish season 1.

    It picks up and season 2 wraps the story line up pretty well while leaving you waiting for season 3. I think it's worth it.

    Sweet, I really liked this show. Except for Ellen Page’s terrible character.

    It's a bit slow, I have my criticisms of it but it's overall enjoyable.

    You could tell there was gonna be another season the way the season 2 finale finished

    I might be in the minority but I liked both seasons I watched them w/ my kids

  12. that's how I feel about it too. Not the biggest fan of Ellen page's character but what she can do is really neat to watch.
