I’m sure that most of you reading this article would already be well aware of what happens at the end of Season 3.
However, I also reckon that there’ll be some people reading this who haven’t had the chance to watch all the episodes yet.
So, with this in mind, I’m going to try and do this article with zero spoilers.
All I will say is that Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is amazing and I can’t wait to watch Season 4.
Now, without any further ado, let’s try and figure out when The Umbrella Academy Season 4’s release date will be on Netflix.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Is it happening?
The first thing we have to try and work out is whether a Season 4 will happen at Netflix or not.
This isn’t always a very easy thing to predict with Netflix shows.
The streamer has a tendency of cancelling shows way before their time and they never let us know too far in advance if another season of one of their more popular shows is happening or not.
Well, we have some good and bad news for you as far as The Umbrella Academy Season 4’s concerned.
The show’s showrunner and creator Steve Blackman recently told TheWrap that he pitched Season 4 to Netflix.
However, he also revealed that the fourth season of the show hasn’t officially been given the greenlight by Netflix.
So, that is the good news, but the bad news is that Season 4 might very well be the show’s final season.
When could Season 4’s release date on Netflix be?
Here’s what Steve Blackman had to say about his pitch for Season 4:
I think inevitably if we got a Season 4, it’s going towards an endgame. I think at a certain point, I’m not sure where we’d go after Season 4. We have to be careful. My plan for next year is not to continually tread on the same ground we have before. It’s a challenge to come up with a new way to subvert this storyline, and I think we have an idea how to do that. But I think if we got to Season Four, it would be a great ending for the run of the show. I’m not saying I couldn’t do more, but you know, I think that would be very satisfying for the audience, four seasons.
Blackman later revealed that he always “knew in my head what I thought the first four seasons are.”
He then went on to add that he’d be open to dreaming up another season’s worth of super-powered action if “we’re so lucky to have more of that.”
As far as a release date’s concerned, I would expect Season 4 to be released next year, 2023.
I would say that the series might be released towards the end of the year.
Will there be more seasons of the show beyond Season 4?
As far as The Umbrella Academy Season 4’s story’s concerned, Blackman revealed that he wants to strip our friends of their powers, which would be a really interesting way to go.
“I want to pose to the viewer and the fan, ‘Would they be happier without their powers?’ I mean, all they do is complain about being who they are,” he said.
Would you like to see The Umbrella Academy be stripped of their superpowers in Season 4?
As far as a Season 5 of the show’s concerned, that’s not an easy question to answer.
It would be great if they could make it, but Blackman seemed to be hinting at Season 4 being the show’s last.
