Netflix has revealed the official trailer for The Umbrella Academy Season 3, revealing the return of an unexpected character and a new threat.
The new season of The Umbrella academy. Based on the graphic novels by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. This season will see the Umbrellas finally return to the present, only to discover that they created a time paradox that resulted in their adoptive father, Reginald Hargreeves, adopting a different group of children in the past and creating the Sparrow Academy, run by a version alternative to the late Ben. While battling the Sparrow, the Umbrellas also learn that a destructive entity is being unleashed that threatens to consume the entire world.

The video shows new footage of the Sparrows fighting the Hargreeves. Including Ben’s tentacle summoning powers. In addition to revealing the surprise return of Pogo and the new threat of the devourer of worlds, Kugelblitz.
Introduced in the first season of the series. Pogo was seen as a father figure to many of the members of the Umbrella Academy. Due to Reginald Hargreeves’ distant and abusive treatment of his adopted children. Despite his love for Pogo, his close relationship with the Umbrella patriarch also led him to keep a number of secrets from the group, including the fact that Elliot Page’s character Viktor, formerly Vanya, had powers after being frequently told that he didn’t have them, which resulted in her murdering him after his transformation into White Violin at the end of it. Pogo would make a brief appearance in season 2 of The Umbrella Academy when Diego and Five sneak into Reginald’s company offices in 1963 and encounter a younger version of the character.
What can we expect this new season?
In this new season we will follow the Hargreeves in an unknown timeline. So it will be interesting to see how Pogo’s return is approached, as he clearly still retains the level of speaking intelligence he learned from Reginald, though he seems to be using this as an enforcer for a biker gang. It is also interesting to note that the trailer for season 3 of The Umbrella Academy reveals the new location of the Hotel Obsidian. A nod to Hotel Oblivion from the comics, especially given its downtown setting, albeit with the new threat that the Kugelblitz was apparently created in a similar underground structure that housed a look-alike in the comics.
The Umbrella Academy stars Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Adam Godley, Colm Feore, Justin H. Min and Ritu Arya. Developed by the lead writer of moon knightJeremy Slater, and created by showrunner Steve Blackman, the series has received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike for its unique tone, time-travel narrative, and character development.
season 3 of The Umbrella Academy opens June 22.
