The Umbrella Academy returns for its fourth and final season next month, and Netflix has now released an extended trailer spotlighting plenty of new footage.

In the season 3 finale, the surviving members of the Hargreeves family and The Sparrow Academy joined forces and managed to prevent the "kugelblitz." There were a few casualties, but none of that really mattered in the end because everything reset, with our now seemingly powerless heroes going their separate ways in an effort to live "normal" lives in what's being referred to as the Final Timeline.

Based on this teaser, at least some of the characters will manage to regain their abilities, as a mysterious new threat emerges and the team must try to prevent yet another apocalypse and either battle against or join forces with (it's not clear) some new faces.

Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally - who are married IRL and appeared together in Parks and Recreation - and David Cross (Arrested Development) are set to join the fray.

Offerman and Mullally will play Drs. Gene and Jean Thibedeau, "a married pair of community college professors from New Mexico who wear sensible footwear and suffer from the most extreme case of deja vu this timeline has ever seen." Cross, meanwhile, will play Sy Grossman, "an upstanding, shy business owner and family man who will stop at nothing to reconnect with his estranged daughter and get her back."

"I'm so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings' journey we began five years ago," creator Steve Blackman said in a statement when the final season was announced. "But before we get to that conclusion, we've got an amazing story ahead for season 4, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes."

Check out the new trailer below.

Based on the comic series of the same name by Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy premiered in 2019 and follows a group of estranged siblings with superpowers who are reunited after the death of their father. Last season ended with a major twist: There’s a new timeline dictated by the family patriarch, Reginald (Colm Feore), and the siblings no longer have their powers. That’s not the only oddity in this timeline, where the stakes are higher than ever before — there are new enemies who want to see them wiped from existence, but how do they face their enemies without their powers? And will the siblings ever get them back?

Apparently jews got mad at the jewish creator of the show for making the multilingual bad guy speak Yiddish in an episode:

Apparently it's okay for a villain to speak other languages, just not theirs. 🤡

Lol. Lmao, even...

@HermanM - guess we're also supposed to forget Elliot page said he'd still play his character as a woman.

Honestly, that alone was the biggest thing for me. Like, it's one thing if the character always had that firm foundation of potentially being trans, but this revelation came out of nowhere. And was clearly only done because Elliot came out as trans.

The first season is still my favorite, but hopefully this last one is better than the third.

Another scenario of the world ending?? How exciting!

The first season was cool but it’s getting too stale at this point - pass.

I gave up somewhere during the 2nd season but saw some clips on youtube, isn't Wesker suppose to be dead, isn't the tentacle kid also the dead, is the old dude their Dad or another robot thing? If every dead character keeps coming back from the dead then what are the stakes again?

@HashTagSwagg - Who's Wesker? Tentacle Kid is Dead. One from season 3 is an alternate universe version. As for this one in season 4...I assume that theirs...but it could also be the one from season 3. Old Dude is not their dad....but he is an Alien.

@BlackStar25 - This is Wesker from Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, it's hard to recognise the dude as he rarely ever took the sunglasses off but I'm pretty sure that's him.

@HashTagSwagg - OHHHHHHH! Yeah. He does die. There was this Universal Reset button at the end of Season 3 and basically reset everyone, part of the Academy, including his death. Honestly forgot. Binged the [frick] outta that season. Lol.

The last season was rough but they were trying to make the best out of a bad situation as it was shot at the height of COVID. Hopefully they can stick the landing with this last season.
