Season 3 of the Netflix show The Umbrella Academy just came out on June 22nd, 2022 with a total of 10 episodes. Enjoying the latest season filled with thrilling adventures and goosebump-inducing events of the series, fans of The Umbrella Academy series are already asking questions about whether or not there will be a The Umbrella Academy Season 4 at all. However, the creator of the show – Steve Blackman, has mentioned that The Umbrella Academy Season 4 may be the last for the Netflix hit series. But why? Here is all we know…
The Umbrella Academy Season 4 News: Season 4 will be the last season?
The Umbrella Academy is based upon the comic series of the same name written by the My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way.
The Umbrella Academy Season 1 was renewed for its second season only after one month of being released to the audience, and Umbrella Academy Season 3 was released on Netflix on June 22nd, 2022.
If you’re new to The Umbrella Academy fandom, then here’s a little recap of what the show is about.
The Umbrella Academy is about a group of 7 specially-abled people who were born in 1983 along with 43 other children who were born to 43 randomly chosen women who showed no signs of pregnancy prior to the birth of their children. Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire businessman, decided to take seven of those 43 mysterious children and create an “army” of seven powerful individuals who will be named The Umbrella Academy. The Umbrella Academy was assigned to save the world from constant attacks and dangerous phenomena.
Although The Umbrella Academy is mostly based on the comic written by Gerard Way, season 3 of the show has created its own plot – and the fourth volume of Way’s comic will not follow the plot of the series.
With The Umbrella Academy being both critically acclaimed and loved by the fans, we’re all wondering about the release of The Umbrella Academy Season 4.
In an interview with Warp, the creator of the show, Steve Blackman was asked about whether there will be a The Umbrella Academy Season 4.
In answer to that, Steve said that The Umbrella Academy Season 4 may be the series’s last season.
He even said that he knows about the plot of season 4 and even though he hasn’t said anything about the plot yet, Blackman talked about how it is interesting to think about what will happen to the Hargreeves siblings when they have lost all their powers.
“I think inevitably if we get a Season 4, it’s going towards an endgame. I think at a certain point, I’m not sure where we’d go after Season 4. We have to be careful. My plan for next year is not to continually tread on the same ground we have before. It’s a challenge to come up with a new way to subvert this storyline, and I think we have an idea of how to do that. But I think if we got to Season 4, it would be a great ending for the run of the show. I’m not saying I couldn’t do more, but you know, I think that would be very satisfying for the audience, four seasons,” said Steve.
So it is certain that we will get an Umbrella Academy Season 4 in the near future. Although it is still not official yet, we can expect the series to have its last season released pretty soon.
