We're still waiting on a trailer, but with 50 days to go until the highly-anticipated premiere of The Umbrella Academy season 3, Netflix has debuted a full batch of promo stills featuring several new faces alongside some familiar members of the dysfunctional superhero family.
We were introduced the the villainous Sparrow Academy over the past few weeks via a series of posters, but these images do give us a first look at the mysterious character played by Euphoria actor Javon Walton.
No details on his role were provided back when he joined the cast, but given the time-travel/displacement aspects of the show, there's a chance he'll be playing the younger version of an established character.
The season 2 finale of The Umbrella Academy (you can check out our review here) saw the gang successfully save the world (again) from Armageddon, but when they returned to their own timeline, they found themselves in an alternate reality with the Sparrows seemingly led by the now very much alive Ben Hargreeves.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 will consist of 10 episodes, with main cast members Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore all confirmed to return. Steve Blackman is also back on board as showrunner.
Check out the updated synopsis below.
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?
