Netflix has yet to officially renew or cancel season 3 of Umbrella Academy. According to new production lists, the third season is expected to start filming around February 2021.
ProductionWeekly reports that season 3 production will begin in February 2021 and end in August 2021.
That makes a 2021 release date for The Umbrella Academy season three release perhaps a little optimistic, but that mostly depends on how long post-production takes, as well as the various other items on Netflix’s checklist before go live. That’s in addition to assuming there are no major setbacks due to the ongoing pandemic.
Filming for season two, for instance, wrapped up in November 2019 and then didn’t arrive on Netflix till the following summer.
Season three, as with previous seasons is scheduled to be shot in Toronto.
Officially, we are yet to hear if season 3 will be returning. It is clear that the story ends with a cliffhanger, which sets up another outing.
The last time we’ve had this much news about a new season without any word from Netflix was with Money Heist season five. Netflix finally announced the new season after months of speculation and teases. However, there were no details about the finale.
According to our sources, season 3 of The Umbrella Academy is in development. It was announced as soon as July 2020. WGA Directory also indicates that a third season has been developed.
Last month, we reported on the rumor from the Canadian directors guild hotlist that listed “production prep” to start in October 2020. This looks like it was a little premature given the new filming dates we’ve learned.
Of course, it’s worth stressing that this information is not officially confirmed by Netflix themselves and until they do so, the series future is officially undecided. As we’ve demonstrated in recent months, active development or intentions to return to production aren’t set in stone with renewal reversals on The Society and GLOW plus the rug pulled out from Away and I’m Not Okay With This despite reports they were also being actively developed for future seasons.
