THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY Season 4 Trailer Delivers New Powers for a Race Against Time

It is truly the final countdown for the Hargreeves siblings. The superpowered crew has been trying to save the world for three seasons now, with their last attempt taking them into yet another rebuilt timeline. Allison has the family that she desperately wanted, thanks to her shady deal with Reginald. And all of the siblings are left without their powers to presumably try to live normal lives. Of course, we knew that this wouldn’t last long after Netflix renewed the series for a fourth and final season. The trailer for The Umbrella Academy season four is here and, once again, the Hargreeves are powered up and trying to stop yet another apocalypse. 

In the clip, Viktor reaches out to Ben to inform him that he will end the world in about 48 hours. (A new version of Reginald affirms that it is closer to 24 hours, actually.) From there, the adventures begin with the whole crew getting back together. Yes, that includes a very annoyed Allison. We meet Nick Offerman and Megan Mullaly’s Gene and Jean Thibedeau, who insist to a small crowd that the world they live in is a lie. Gene says “that tentacled boy” is the key to understanding all the timelines.

Number Five insists that they have to fix things. And, well, it seems they have some new tools to do it. After Reginald does some sort of possible shock therapy (or general torture) to them, we see some new talents among the sibling collective. Alison’s eyes glow and she can throw people with her mind. Lila, whose power is mimicking others’ powers, boasts the power of laser eyes. Interesting…

Here’s a quick synopsis of The Umbrella Academy to bring the trailer into further focus: 

The Hargreeves siblings have scattered after the climactic showdown at the Hotel Oblivion led to a complete reset of their timeline. Stripped of their powers, each is left to fend for themselves and find a new normal — with wildly varying degrees of success. Yet the trappings of their uncanny new world prove too hard to ignore for very long. Their father Reginald, alive and well, has stepped out of the shadows and into the public eye, overseeing a powerful and nefarious business empire. A mysterious association known as The Keepers holds clandestine meetings believing the reality they’re living in is a lie and a great reckoning is coming. As these strange new forces conspire around them, the Umbrella Academy must come together one last time — and risk upsetting the shaky peace they’ve all endured so much to secure — to finally set things right.

What Is the Release Date for The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy will drop all of its episodes on August 8.
