The Umbrella Academy season 3 is nowhere to be found on Netflix’s brief list of July 2021 releases. When can we expect it to come?
The Umbrella Academy is a Netflix Original sci-fi/adventure series. The story is based on the comic of the same name that Gerard Arthur Way wrote. Jeremy Slater is the developer of the series while Steve Blackman is the creator of it for TV. The cast includes many prominent and familiar names such as Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, and David Casteñada. It’s a highly popular series with millions of viewers each year and high critic ratings on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. While its IMDb rating is 8.0, critics at Rotten Tomatoes deem The Umbrella Academy to be 87%.
The series focuses on a group of reunited siblings who have supernatural powers that can alter the fate of humanity. They need to find out about the mystery of their father’s death while also trying to save the world. It’s an action-packed series that also has some humorous elements, given the dysfunctionality of the siblings after all those years.
The series debuted on Netflix in February 2019. The second season came in July 2020, and we’ve been waiting for the third season since. Our wait is not going to end this month, too. As a matter of fact, we do not even seem close to the release of The Umbrella Academy season 3.
What is the release date of The Umbrella Academy season 3?
Well, it goes without saying that there’s no official announcement about the release date yet. We know the crew is still shooting the new season. However, it was affected by the pandemic as they had to film in shorter days due to the protocols. The pandemic might have less effect on the process now, given the wider availability of the vaccines.
The crew is reportedly planning to finish filming the season in September 2021. When we add the post-production process, which usually takes around 6-8 months, it seems Netflix will finish the whole thing around May 2022.
This leaves us with a possible release date around early-mid 2022, but we still have a long way to go. Everything will become clearer when the production wraps, but we’ll have to wait until that.
