The Umbrella Academy season 4: release date, trailer, cast and everything we know

The Umbrella Academy season 4 will be the final season following our favorite group of superpowered siblings trying to save the world from supernatural doom.

In The Umbrella Academy season 3, not only did the paranormal gang have to face off against a rival clan of superpowered children called the Sparrow Academy, but there was an array dangerous action when they had to defeat the Kugelblitz from destroying the world.

With the usual time-hopping excursions and doomsday looming, they managed to save the world, but we were once again left with more questions than answers after the final episode — which we hope season 4 will be able to answer.

Showrunner Steve Blackman said of the renewal: “I’m so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings’ journey we began five years ago.

"But before we get to that conclusion, we’ve got an amazing story ahead for season four, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes.” Exciting!

Here's everything we know about The Umbrella Academy season 4...

The Umbrella Academy season 4 plot

The ending of season 3 saw the heroes stepping into a new timeline where they had no powers and some of the members were suddenly missing, including Luther's new wife Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez). The group then split up, wanting to discover this new world as normal people.

Meanwhile, their father, Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) was standing on top of a skyscraper in the city with his once late wife, which appeared to be the headquarters of his huge business empire Hargreeves Financial.

Although no plot details for season 4 have been released yet, we can guess that the upcoming series will pick up right where it left off with the siblings in the new city. If the end credits are anything to go by, we might be seeing Ben getting up to some shenanigans in Korea.

Talking to Netflix Tudum, Steve Blackman teased more about what's to come in season 4.

He said: "This new timeline has been dictated by Hargreeves, who reprogrammed the Universe at the end of the Season 3 finale. But because of Allison’s actions, he didn’t get to finish what he started before Allison pressed the reset button.

"So, the siblings losing their powers isn’t going to be the only oddity in this timeline. There are new enemies who want to see them wiped out of existence, but how do they manage without their powers? Is there even a way to get them back? The stakes have never been greater."

Taking to Instagram, Steve gave us a teaser of what's to come as he shared the cover page of the script for the first episode of season 4, with the caption: "And so it begins… one last time ❤️☂️", revealing the ominous title for the premiere episode as The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want. 

It also confirms that season 4 will consist of six episodes, making it the shortest season.
