Netflix adjusted The Umbrella Academy in a live-action series that premiered in 2019. With two seasons in the pocket, season 3 of The Umbrella Academy will premiere on June 22. Having recently saved the world from doomsday in 1963, the Hargreeves siblings will come face to face with the Sparrow Academy in the new season. Smart, stylish and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent showdown that turns out to be the least of everyone’s worries, the synopsis reads. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises on their own — and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc on the universe (something they may have caused) — now all they have to do is convince Dad’s new and potentially better family to “Help them right what made their arrival 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?”
