A hearty warm welcome to Viktor Hargreeves. So, if you are wondering who is this Viktor Hargreeves? Is he a new character? Let’s clear all your doubts.No, Eliot Page’s character has officially been renamed Viktor Hargreeves in The Umbrella Academy season 3. This announcement is one of the first sneak peeks of The Umbrella Academy season 3, which will premiere on June 22nd, 2022.
Season 2 has left us in a cliff-hanging situation. As the Hargreeves siblings played by Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampan, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher, haven’t properly fixed the timeline, and without fixing their return to the present. But little did they know, the Sparrows will land in the present. Sparrows, who are far more “smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs” will immediately clash with the Umbrellas, and we can have a violent face-off.
