The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date still hasn’t been officially revealed by Netflix yet, and I’ve been wondering when it might be.
Season 2 of this incredible Netflix show blew us away this summer.
At least, it blew me away.
I thought Season 2 was so much better than the first season, and I already loved Season 1 of The Umbrella Academy.
So, now that Season 2 is out in the open, fans of the show are asking themselves when Season 3 will be released.
We have yet to hear from Netflix when the next season of this comic book superhero TV show will land.
They haven’t even announced yet whether there will be a third season or now.
That said, I can safely say that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will be greenlit.
At least, I have it on good authority that it’s already being worked on.
When will The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date be revealed?
I spoke to one of the show’s directors a while back – before The Umbrella Academy Season 2 was released – and he told me that they already had scripts ready for Season 3.
The director in question was Jeremy Webb.
He directed the finale episode of Season 2, called The End of Something.
I was fortunate enough to interview him for our official podcast, Small Screen Stories.
During our interview, he told me the following:
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 then added:
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.
Why hasn’t Netflix announced a release date for The Umbrella Academy Season 3 yet?
So, if Jeremy is to be believed, we should hear something about The Umbrella Academy Season 3 in a few days.
It is rather unusual that Netflix didn’t announce The Umbrella Academy Season 3 after they dropped Season 2.
By all accounts, Season 2 did pretty well on the streaming platform.
There have been rumours that The Umbrella Academy would be getting at least four seasons.
So, if they do end up announcing Season 3, when could it be released on Netflix?
COVID-19 has definitely delayed the release dates of a lot of shows and movies.
Before this pandemic, Netflix might have been hoping to have this new season of The Umbrella Academy could be released in 2021.
However, we might be looking at a 2022 release date now.
COVID-19 has put delays on everything
We’ve already seen delays on all the movies coming out in 2020.
Every big blockbuster coming out in 2020 has been delayed to 2021.
The likes of Black Widow, A Quiet Place Part 2, Morbius, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, F9 and Top Gun: Maverick have all been pushed into 2021.
COVID-19 has made things very difficult for movies and TV shows from being made.
This means that a show like The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will be very difficult to get made due to the current climate.
Shows like The Mandalorian have managed to get made despite the pandemic.
That’s because they film in a closed environment.
During my time chatting to Jeremy, we discussed how they might end up filming shows like The Umbrella Academy during the pandemic.
It really is an almost impossible situation to deal with for the entertainment industry.
However, Hollywood will always find a way.
Look at what they managed to do with the Avater sequels.
Avatar 2 and 3 shot in New Zealand which was one of the very few places where productions could go to film.
However, I doubt that The Umbrella Academy will be able to go to New Zealand to shoot their third season.
What might happen in Season 3?
Anyway, going back to when The Umbrella Academy Season 3’s release date could be.
The first and second seasons of The Umbrella Academy were released around summertime.
Therefore, we could be seeing Season 3 be released some point in the summer of 2022.
It could end up coming out a bit earlier than that.
As for what could happen in Season 3, I’m pretty sure that they’re going to be doing their utmost to prevent the Apocalypse.
Time-travel, saving a President from being assassinated, stopping an Apocalypse.
They could end up going into space.
Maybe even the Moon in Season 3 which is something they do in the comic books.
We’re just going to have to wait and see.
