Good news: you’re done Umbrella Academy Season 3 on Netflix. You did it! Your intense binge-watching session is over. And now, you’re probably wondering when you can go ahead and watch Umbrella Academy Season 4, especially after that wild ending.
But will there be Umbrella Academy Season 4 on Netflix? When can it premiere, if so? And what might happen in season four… Is there material from the comics by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá to draw? Here’s everything we know about Umbrella Academy Season 4, so four. I mean, far.
Will There Be An Umbrella Academy Season 4 On Netflix?
From now on? we don’t know. However, there are some promising signs that indicate there will be a Season 4 Umbrella Academy. The former, and it might seem a little counter-intuitive about how the show was cancelled, but Netflix didn’t announce Season 3 of Umbrella Academy as the last season. While streamers have canceled many shows, especially for more genre-friendly and popular series, they tend to announce something as “the third and final season;” For example, Lock & Lock. That gives creators time to finish their stories, and time for fans to properly mourn.
The second sign, and very light spoilers here, season three ended on a game-changing cliffhanger. It could be a sign of trust from host Steve Blackman, or a last-ditch effort to convince Netflix that they are have to take Season 4 to find out what happened or risk some furious fans. I tend to think the former, in this case.
A third sign that it might be picking up is that the first two seasons were heavily streamed according to Netflix’s self-reported statistics, and were well received by critics. If Season 3 maintains Netflix’s internal stats from Seasons 1 and 2, there’s no reason to think the show won’t continue. That said, we’ll have to wait and see that info… Umbrella Academy picked up for Season 2 about two months after Season 1 debuted, while there was a lag of about four months between the release of Season 2 and the Season 3 update. Bottom line, it might take a while to figure out the status Umbrella Academy 4th season.
When will Umbrella Academy Season 4 Premiere on Netflix?
Say Umbrella Academy not picked up for Season 4 by Netflix. If so, when can it premiere? Good question. Here’s the answer. Based on the first three seasons, it takes about 5-6 months to film a season Umbrella Academy. However, post-production has varied widely, most likely due to COVID-19. New seasons of the show have been released ranging from seven months to 10 months after production is complete. COVID has also caused a wide gap in When the inaugural season, with the first two seasons having a gap of about a year and a half, while Seasons 2 and 3 debuted nearly two years apart.
Based on all that, and production returning to a relatively new normal, it might just be a new season Umbrella Academy could debut about a year and a half from now, which is November or December 2023. If it takes longer to pick up the show, it could return as early as 2024, instead. Wait there, my brellies.
What Can Happen In Umbrella Academy 4th season?
If you’ve watched Umbrella Academy Season 3, and spoilers past this point, you know that our heroes no longer have super powers, and are trapped in a new reality in which Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) reigns. If there’s a fourth season, chances are they should get their powers back before too long, and find out what their ex-father did. Oh, and there’s a second Ben (Justin H. Min) to think about, as well as lots of other potential doubles. Time for twin battles?
