Potential Storylines We Could See in Season 4

Spoiler Warning: The Umbrella Academy Season 3

The Umbrella Academy, a Netflix original series that introduced audiences to a wide range of quirky characters, each of whom gave a unique and powerful performance, recently released its third season. Though there was little fanfare surrounding this most recent installment of The Umbrella Academy, that did little to diminish the excitement of the series’ ardent viewer base. Said viewers, who have come to expect the unexpected in this absurdist, reality-bending comic book adaptation, were undoubtedly satisfied in their cravings for abnormal storylines by the utterly ridiculous plotlines of season three.


Despite the narrowly avoided apocalypses and constant time-traveling of past seasons, season three of The Umbrella Academy featured the entirety of the eccentric Hargreeves family. All of them escaped the multiple end-of-the-world storylines relatively unscathed. Returning to the fold were: Elliot Page (Juno, X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Viktor Hargreeves, English actor Tom Hopper (Black Sails, Game of Thrones), who portrays Luther Hargreeves, and David Castenada (Switched at Birth, Jane the Virgin) as Diego Hargreeves, to name only a few.

The ending of The Umbrella Academy season three was anything but clear. Here’s what might happen if the series returns for a season four.

The Hargreeves as a Fractured Family ViktorAllison

The Umbrella Academy’s primary focal point, the adopted Hargreeves children, has had no shortage of familial spats throughout the run of the series. However, the family’s beef with their alternate reality replacements, The Sparrow Academy, forced them to work in harmony with one another, though they never stopped hurling insults at one another.

At the end of season three, though the family had rediscovered their tight-knit relationship, presumed by many to have been lost sometime during their troubled childhood, the Hargreeves adoptees decided to go their own separate ways. In previous seasons, when the family splits up, the individual members have a tendency to entrench themselves in wildly disparate lives. In the new and utterly mysterious timeline that was created in the wake of season three’s new apocalypse, where it’s likely that the world will need The Umbrella Academy more desperately than ever, a fractured family, coupled with their recent discovery that the events at the Hotel Obsidian have rendered them powerless, is sure to create all manner of issues for the Hargreeves clan and the world at large.

More Timeline Chaos Sparrows

When the Umbrella Academy heroes returned from the sojourn in the sixties, wherein they saved the world once again, they returned to their childhood home only to find that they’d been replaced by their uncaring father, Colm Feore’s (The Chronicles of Riddick, House of Cards) Sir Reginald Hargreeves. That’s not all: in the new reality, the Umbrella Academy members never even existed, as their mothers were killed by the unforeseen psychic spurt of Callum Keith Rennie’s (Fifty Shades of Gray) Harlan, and the resulting paradox created the problematic kugelblitz, which threatened to end the world throughout season three.

At the end of the season, the family somehow escapes unscathed, and all the injuries they sustained throughout the season are healed. However, the Sparrow Academy has somehow disappeared, and the family found themselves powerless. Who knows what other strange and potentially harrowing facets of this new reality will rear their ugly heads in a potential season four.

A Not So Bright Future for The Umbrella AcademyReggieGreeves

Sir Reginald Hargreeves has always been a controversial character. At times, it seems his hard-handed discipline of the Umbrella Academy is what brought them into their own as heroes. However, at the same time, it is clear he cares little for their lives or well-being, only seeing his adopted children as a means to an as-of-yet unknown endpoint.

Following the apocalyptic events at the Hotel Obsidian, it seems as if Sir Reginald Hargreeves got some version of his wish, as he is shown observing New York City from the window of a massive, futuristic high-rise. It’s unclear exactly what the new timelines will mean for the Umbrella Academy. However, if the family’s adopted father, whose intentions are always unclear and oftentimes nefarious, has a powerful role in this particular reality, that will likely cause a whole host of unforeseen issues, as what’s good for their secretly alien father figure is not often what’s best for them.

The Umbrella Academy has consistently been a weird and wonderful exploration into the darker side of superpowers and familial responsibility since its release in 2019. Given its all-star cast, and the massive potential for more time traveling, reality-bending madness, the show must be renewed for another season. Fans can only hope that the Hargreeves clan will get another crack at saving the world.
