After being renewed for a third season this past November, we now have further confirmation on how the cast for Umbrella Academy‘s new season will look like. The Hargreeves children discovered that their actions have led to a brand new timeline. This led up to the final scene of season two teasing the appearance of the Sparrow Academy. Following these events in Dallas, Sir Reginald got a glimpse of what the future held for both himself and his Umbrella Academy. In order to give himself a future, where he didn’t have to die in order to bring his estranged children back together, he decided to get different children altogether. As such, making up a team that would hopefully be able to avoid the apocalypse in a way the older ones couldn’t in the first season.
This new team is now confirmed to feature Justin Cornwell, Genesis Rodriguez, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, and Cazzie David. Justin H. Min. will also be part of the ensemble after portraying the main timeline’s Ben Hargreeves in the first two seasons of the show. The third season, which will consist of 10 episodes, will hopefully begin production this February and will see the return of stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, Aidan Gallagher, Ritu Arya, David Casteneda, Emmy-Raver-Lampman, and Robert Sheehan. It will be interesting to see the conflict between these two families escalate throughout the next season, and how much it’ll follow the original comic. The Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube is already going to be an interesting addition to an already crazy show.
