“After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all,” the official description for Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy reads. “But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them.
“Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong.
“Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?”
In our review of Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy, we said, “While it may tread familiar ground, Umbrella Academy Season 2 improves on its predecessor by focusing on all the things that made Season 1 so charming: its rapid-fire banter, kinetic action sequences, killer soundtrack, and the complicated family dynamic at its heart.”
