The Umbrella Academy is currently making rounds on the internet after its yet another successful season which was released on Netflix in June 2022. While the fans are loving how the story has unfolded so far, the creator of the series Steve Blackman has left them further enticed by sharing a brief tease from the fourth and final season of the show.
Based on the comic book series of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Ba, Umbrella Academy is a sci-fi show following a group of unusual siblings each with a different superpower who unite to prevent the world from an apocalypse. The first season was released in 2019 and so far we have three seasons, each revolving around a new calamity that haunts the world. The cast includes Colm Feore, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Tom Hopper, and Oscar nominee Elliot Page.
The latest season of The Umbrella Academy showed how Allison interrupts Hargreeves’ attempt to properly reset the timeline by pushing the button on the device too soon. This leaves the characters separated and losing their superpowers. Meanwhile, Sloane is also missing. The third season also hinted that Reginald Hargreeves may be the villain in the fourth and final season, while Ben may be alive.
While the show has officially been renewed for the fourth season, Netflix has shared a sneak peek into the possible events of The Umbrella Academy season 4.
Steve Blackman believes that “the siblings are always up for a challenge.” While this statement can be interpreted in many ways, we cannot exactly say what kind of challenges they will be facing next. However, he did confirm that the siblings will eventually lose their superpower but that would not be the only problem for them in the next season.
“Losing their powers isn’t going to be the only oddity in this timeline,”Steve Blackman
According to media reports, the new timeline will be dictated by Hargreeves who reprogrammed the Universe in the last episode of season 3. However, as Allison pressed the button before he intended to, this may leave him with some unfinished business.
The storyline of The Umbrella Academy Season 4 is not fully revealed and there are only three volumes of comics so far, hence we have limited material to predict what’s coming next. The series has already covered most events from the books and fans anticipate that the showrunners are working on an outline for the fourth season. Given that the Sparrow Academy has already been a part of The Umbrella Academy in season 3, Netflix may take a cue like D&D of Game of Thrones and come up with its own story for the upcoming season.
The possibilities are endless and with shows like The Umbrella Academy, nothing seems too much. It is expected that the final season will pull out all the stops but the audience is hoping that the showrunners will maintain the quality of the storyline and won’t end their favorite show with a terrible ending.
