This week the marathon to do is The Umbrella Academy. The new batch of chapters landed for the third time and the most surprising thing at this point is that the end of the world does not stop being fun for the third time when it is shared with the Hargreeves brothers.
Which may lead many to wonder: when will we see a fourth season of The Umbrella Academy? No problem, at ENTER.CO we tell you everything we know about the next season of the show.
Is there confirmation of a season 4 of The Umbrella Academy?
No. For now, Netflix has not given the green light to a continuation of its history.
It is worth mentioning that the further a show progresses, the more expensive it becomes for the platform to continue it. While the first seasons are an investment, in the fourth the contract renewals of the actors, the team in charge of the script, directors, not to mention the rights of use and publicity increase.
That said, The Umbrella Academy is currently one of the most popular products on the platform. Netflix also can’t afford to cancel shows like this now that shows like Stranger Things are seeing their decline and the flow of new shows doesn’t seem to be producing the hook to attract new subscribers that it hoped.
Will The Umbrella Academy season 4 be the end of the show?
It does not seem. Apparently the creator of the show has “many more seasons” planned for the Netflix adaptation, although he assured that he already has an ending in mind.
What story would we see in season 4 of The Umbrella Academy?
At this point the Netflix adaptation is quite a departure from the source material. The first season adapted the arc of The Apocalypse Suite, the two ‘Hotel Dallas’ and the three is an extra combination between ‘Oblivion Hotel’ and ‘The Sparrow Academy’ (this last story has not been published, but Gerard Way confessed to having shared details with the Netflix team for the adaptation).
This means that the story that we will see in a season 4 of ‘The Umbrella Academy’ will possibly be 100% original.
How can the Umbrella Academy story continue?
Of course, The Umbrella Academy could end as it did: the Hargreeves brothers no longer have their powers and are now trying to live in this new dimension. But at the same time, it is possible that the story will show the final showdown between The Umbrella Academy and Reginald Hargreeves.
There are also quite a few mysteries yet to be solved. The origin of the boys’ powers has not yet been revealed. Sloan’s whereabouts also remain one of the new season’s mysteries. One of the most important is the deal Reginald made with Alison that allowed him to return to her daughter and a ‘modern’ version of her husband Ray. There is also the mystery of ‘The Jennifer Incident’ that caused Ben’s death in the original universe.
