Gather up, Brellies. In 2022, Netflix announced The Umbrella Academy, our beloved time-traveling mess of a series, is coming back for season four. However, season four of The Umbrella Academy will be the final season. It is awesome that their story will get an ending. But it is always a bit sad to say goodbye to something that you love so much.
The Umbrella Academy season three left the Hargreeves siblings in quite a lurch. Allison did some dirty deeds but got her daughter and husband Ray out of the deal. Reginald seems to be even more rich, powerful, and terrible in this new timeline. Five is alone once again, and Luther is heartbroken. Meanwhile, Diego and Lila are going to simply live their lives. Oh, and no one seems to have powers anymore. And we don’t know what the hell is going on with that new Ben. That’s just a few of the many plot threads left hanging from the season finale. So hopefully, we will get answers to those questions in The Umbrella Academy season four.
The Umbrella Academy Cast Teases Season Four
As part of Netflix’ Geeked Week in 2023, we got this delightful video of the cast sharing teases about season four. It’s all very vague (and charming), but it sounds like the siblings will face the usual amount of mayhem.
Who Is Returning for The Umbrella Academy Season Four?
We know a few people are set to return, including Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallager, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. So that means we are getting Viktor, Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus (yay!), Five, Ben (a new, new, new one?), Lila, and Reginald are back. We know Nick Offerman, David Cross, and Megan Mullally will appear, too.
Steve Blackman will also return as the showrunner and executive producer.
What Is the Release Date and Plot for The Umbrella Academy Season Four?
The Umbrella Academy season four will arrive in 2024. As far as the plot, it is pretty up in the air at this point. Season three pretty much covered the last two volumes of the comics. This means there will be some pretty significant creative liberty being taken at this time. As usual, Five will discover some massive problem and try to round the troops up to save the world. Again. Maybe this time will be the charm, and they can set a timeline that isn’t wacky. All we want is for everyone to be happy and a retirement celebration for Five. He’s hella old and deserves it.
Until season four comes, we will be stuck in the loop of Luther and Sloane’s wedding. It’s our Brellie happy place.
