The Umbrella Academy season 3 is here at last but what's next for the show? Will there be a The Umbrella Academy season 4?

The Umbrella Academy season 3 picks up right where season 2 leaves off. After saving the world once again, the Hargreeves siblings have just returned to the 2019 – except all is not as it seems. When they return to The Umbrella Academy, they learn that a different set of siblings with superpowers live there, and they're called the Sparrow Academy.

Umbrella Academy season 3 ends with another huge game-changing plot twist, but this time, there's one small detail that might make it much harder for the Brellies to get back to where they belong.

Naturally, fans already want a fourth season of the superhero show. With that in mind, here's everything we know about The Umbrella Academy season 4, including the release date, cast, trailers, spoilers and news about what's to come.

When does The Umbrella Academy season 4 come out?

Has The Umbrella Academy been renewed for season 4?

As it stands, Netflix are yet to officially confirm if The Umbrella Academy will be back for season 4. There's no need to worry just yet, though. Netflix tend to wait a couple of months after a show has come out before revealing whether or not it will be coming back for more.

Speaking to Screen Rant, showrunner Steve Blackman said: "All I can say is I know what season 4 is, but we haven't been picked up yet. Our fingers are crossed... We'll have to wait and see like everybody else."

Season 3 has already reached the number 1 spot on Netflix's Top 10 list in various countries around the world. So it feels like it's only a matter of time before we hear some good news about season 4's renewal.

When is The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date?

Given that the season itself is yet to be renewed, there's currently no word on an Umbrella Academy season 4 release date just yet.

Fans can likely expect to see the next season of the show (if it gets renewed) return at some point in 2024. For reference, season 1 premiered in February 2019, season 2 aired in July 2020 and season 3 was being released in June 2022. Fingers crossed there won't be any pandemic delays this time around.

Seasons 1, 2 and 3 are all 10 episodes long so we imagine that season 4 will also have 10 episodes.

Who will be in The Umbrella Academy season 4 cast?

After some very close brushes with death (and some actual deaths) in The Umbrella Academy season 3, the Hargreeves siblings are all alive when the credits roll on the final episode. Although, they are now in a completely brand new universe thanks to Sir Reginald Hargreeves,

In other words, we expect to see Elliot Page (Viktor), Tom Hopper (Luther), David Castañeda (Diego), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison), Robert Sheehan (Klaus) and Aidan Gallagher (Number Five) come back for more.

Ritu Arya (Lila) will be back, as well as Justin H. Min (Ben) and Colm Feore (Sir Reginald).

As for The Sparrow Academy? It's unclear if Justin Cornwell (Marcus), Britne Oldford (Fei), Jake Epstein (Alphonso), Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane) and Cazzie David (Jayme) will be in season 4 at the moment. But fans have already theorised that their characters could all return.

Due to their deaths in season 3, it's also unclear if Javon Walton (Stanley) and Callum Keith Rennie (Lester/Harlan) will return in season 4.

While Kate Walsh (The Handler) only appeared as a voice recording in season 3, the reset could see her back for more timeline antics in season 4.

And, as always, expect a whole new host of characters. We're in a new universe now... anything could happen.

What will happen in The Umbrella Academy season 4?

There is no word on The Umbrella Academy season 4 plot just yet but the season ends with the Hargreeves siblings in a new universe with no powers.

Teasing what's ahead for the siblings in an interview with Decider, showrunner Steve Blackman said that he's already got the storyline for season 4 in place: "I do know what Season 4 is and we leave them in a pretty precarious place with the question that I hope the audience is asking themselves is: are they better off without their powers? Are they better off with them? Did Hargreeves give them the gift and say, look, you’ve hated the powers, it’s been the bane of your existence. Now you are free, you are, quote unquote, normal. Can they live like that and be normal?

"I have a way that they’ll get their powers back. But also, Hargreeves got something very special back himself—he got his wife. But that is also a very complicated story, given that they’re aliens, which we will also hopefully touch on next year. The world, if you look carefully, is slightly different as well, this timeline, a lot of Hargreeves Enterprises things around. So, there’s a lot of places to go in Season 4, and I’ve got a really good plan for it if we get another year.”

Blackman also teased that the mid-credit scene with Ben – who is now confirmed to be Sparrow Ben from season 3 – will also play a very important part in season 4.
