Showrunner Steve Blackman today announced at SXSW that Netflix has set the premiere date for The Umbrella Academy Season 3!
The series will return to the streaming service on Wednesday, June 22.
After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all.
But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them.
Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns.
Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own — and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong.
Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?

Created and executive produced by Blackman, the series is also executive produced by director Jeff F. King, Keith Goldberg, Mike Richardson, and Jeremy Webb (Episode 301).
The co-executive producers are Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. The series is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group.
