The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date speculation, cast, and news

The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date is coming, and we've got everything you need to know on one of the best Netflix series ever coming to an end.

Umbrella Academy season 4 release date

What is The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date? Season 3 of the show left us with a lot of unanswered questions, as well as a lot of potential avenues for where the story of the Hargreeves siblings can go next.

Based on the comic book series by Gerard Way (yes, that Gerard Way) The Umbrella Academy tells the story of seven orphans adopted by billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who unlocks their superpowered abilities and trains them up to save the universe from an unspecified threat — whether they like it or not. One of the best Netflix series, the concept and great casting made sure we were in for every twist and turn the heroes face.

Season 3 of the sci-fi series was released in 2022, but given the show is among the cream of Netflix‘s crop, it’s unsurprising that people are already speculating about The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date. Here’s what we know for certain.

The Umbrella Academy season 4 release date speculation

The Umbrella Academy season 4 could release in early 2024, and it’s already in post-production. Generally, seasons of The Umbrella Academy take between 18 months and two years to make, between filming and VFX.

While season 1 was released in February 2019, season 2 of the Netflix series came approximately a year and a half later, in July 2020, while Covid-19 delays meant that season 3 didn’t come out until nearly two years later, in June 2022.

Filming for season 4 has taken place, though, so our above estimate is looking to be the best bet. We’ll update you once we know more.

The Umbrella Academy season 4 cast

The cast of The Umbrella Academy season 4 could include anyone thanks all the funky business around the timeline at the moment. Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, and more of your favorites are already confirmed, though.

This means that as well as every member of the original Umbrella Academy, we may also come across people who were previously deceased, like Jayme (Cazzie David) and Marcus (Justin Cornwell).

Thanks to an Instagram post of the table read, we know that the main crew will be back on screen for certain. Nick Offerman and his wife Megan Mullally are also joining the cast as well in undisclosed roles.

With so many fates (and reality) up in the air, we can expect all the main members of the cast to return, but who will be left standing by the end of season 4 is another question!

The Umbrella Academy season 4 cast list:

  • Elliot Page as Viktor
  • Tom Hopper as Luther
  • David Castañeda as Diego
  • Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison
  • Robert Sheehan as Klaus
  • Aidan Gallagher as Number Five
  • Justin H Min as Ben
  • Adam Godley as Pogo
  • Colm Feore as Reginald
  • Nick Offerman
  • Megan Mullally

What will The Umbrella Academy season 4 be about?

While a lot is unknown about the plot of The Umbrella Academy season 4, we do know that it will revolve around the family without their powers.

We also know that season 4 will be the final season of the show, so that makes for a lot of loose threads to be tied up in the conclusion. The first two seasons of The Umbrella Academy adapted the first three volumes of Way’s comic.

A fourth volume, entitled Sparrow Academy, was announced in July 2020, and while it hasn’t been released yet, it’s clear that the plotline of season 3 was partly influenced by this as-yet-released volume.

What’s less clear is whether season 3 covered the whole of this volume, or if season 4 will involve the writers pulling a Game of Thrones and writing the series completely from scratch with no source material (although Way does have a level of creative direction on the show as a producer).

What we do know is that at the climax of season 3, the Hargreeves were left without their powers, with reality rewritten and their tyrannical father once again in power: so they’ll naturally be wanting to put that right in season 4.

Further to this, a post-credit scene where Ben seems to track down his birth parents also teases a potential season 4 storyline, and of course, there’s still a lot to learn about the mysterious Sparrow Academy that a season 4 would hopefully delve into.

Is there a trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 4?

Currently, The Umbrella Academy season 4 has no trailer, but we expect one in late 2023 or early 2024.

But, don’t worry, you can rewatch the dance-off instead. That’s just as good as a trailer, we think.

How many episodes will there be in Umbrella Academy season 4?

The Umbrella Academy will have six episodes in season 4, which makes it shorter than usual.

This is the final season of the show, and it’s ending with a cut down episode count, but maybe that’s not a bad thing: they can focus on quality over quantity.
