Fans of the Hargreeves saga, it’s time to say goodbye to Netflix fiction. The good news: the platform has announced that ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will have season 4. The bad: that this will be the end from the series of the atypical superheroic family.
This has been confirmed by the platform via its social networks, with a simple poster with a 4 and “Last season”. The news comes some surprising (for what it has taken, being the series that it is) two months after the premiere of the third season. This seems to indicate that they are especially cautious with renewal issues (and if not, let them tell ‘Sandman’).
A demanded ending
Mikel already commented, in his review of the end of season 3, that he felt that the superhero series should not last much longer. It seems that those responsible for the series think the same and are already preparing the end of the family saga. Steve Blackmanwho remains as showrunner, has stated:
“I am so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves brothers’ odyssey that we began five years ago. But before we jump to that conclusion, we have an amazing story for Season 4, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes.”
The cast of the series consists of Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. It has not yet been confirmed that all of these will return for these last episodes.
