That’s why we’ve decided to do some digging and try to figure out when the next season could be released.
The Umbrella Academy Season 2 was released on July 31st, 2020 and it was released to pretty positive reviews.
We then broke the news that Netflix was already working on Season 3 of their new hit show.
That got us thinking, when will Netflix reveal The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date?
We were recently told by one of the show’s directors, Jeremy Webb, that Season 3 is in the works.
However, with the current Coronavirus pandemic, Season 3’s release date will end up being later than Netflix might have wanted it to be.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date hasn’t been revealed
So, it’s true that The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date hasn’t been revealed yet.
It’s hasn’t even officially been revealed whether Netflix will even make Season 3.
That said, Jeremy told us in a recent interview on our official podcast, Small Screen Stories, that discussions are happening.
Jeremy started off by telling us that he’s confident The Umbrella Academy Season will get the green light.
“We’re hoping that we’re going to get a third season of The Umbrella Academy, which is highly likely I think, and obviously some scripts have been written and I’m very much hooked into being involved in that again and interesting in doing that,” Jeremy revealed during our recent episode of our podcast, Small Screen Stories.
Jeremy continued: “So, the conversations that I’ve had are, ‘I this happens and we figure this out…’ I mean, there’s a lot of ‘If, if if’, but we’re hoping that to the subject to it being renewed getting into that in the fall, the autumn time.”
The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s Release Date Should Be In 2021
Jeremy then went on to talk about The Umbrella Academy Season 2.
That was when he revealed that he believes it’ll be even better than the first season.
“I think because the first season was very successful, I think. And, I think season two’s even better,” revealed Jeremy.
He added: “There’s a strong chance, they start to put things in place quite early on so we can get ahead of the game.
“So, I think there’s a certain amount of investment into getting ready for a third season on any show, especially with a giant like Netflix.”
Jeremy then addressed the Coronavirus pandemic.
He said: “Obviously, the pandemic throws up a whole bunch on stuff that needs to be resolved, but they’re (Netflix) still huge supporters of the show, and things need to continue.”
You can listen to what he said in full in the latest episode of Small Screen Stories, which you can find wherever you get your podcasts.
How many seasons will The Umbrella Academy end up getting?
So, it does sound like Season 3 is going to be coming to Netflix.
Our best guess is that the third season will be landing on the streaming platform sometime in 2021.
However, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, that release date could be pushed into 2022.
Hopefully, that will be early 2022 as opposed to 2021.
However, how many more seasons of The Umbrella Academy will we get beyond Season 3?
Given how popular the first season of the show turned out to be worldwide, I’m pretty certain we’re going to get at least four seasons.
My opinion is that The Umbrella Academy will end up getting five seasons, maybe even six.
The Umbrella Academy could end up getting five seasons
Shows on Netflix don’t tend to get more than five seasons.
So, that would be a huge achievement for the comic book series.
