According to The Directors Guild of Canada, the Umbrella Academy will begin preparations for its third season in October 2020. Netflix has yet to officially announce the return of the series for its third season.
The incredibly popular series The Umbrella Academy premiered its second season back in July 2020 to rave reviews and although we haven’t heard officially how well the series has done via Netflix viewership figures, it has topped multiple Nielsen rating lists.
Most fans will know that season 3 is directly set up at the end of season 2 of The Umbrella Academy and there’s plenty source material left to cover too.
The Umbrella Academy was being considered for season 3. It had been reported that the academy is currently in development. Also, we reported on the fact that Elizabeth Padden and Lauren Otero were both attached to The Umbrella Academy's writing team.
ProductionWeekly reported the same. Now, The Directors Guild of Canada seems to confirm that S3 is taking place. The Umbrella Academy S3 preparations are also rumored for October 2020.
The series is filmed almost entirely in Toronto, Canada. ProductionWeekly reports that the series has the working title Mercury.
Although the series is still considered to be in active development right now, the cast seems to be none the wiser as to the future of the show (or are held under strict NDA’s). Emmy Raver-Lampman for instance just this week featured on the IMDb Movies That Change My Life podcast where she said she wish she knew more adding “We’re honestly waiting with bated breath as well, as [you]. So, you know.”
