The third season of the Netflix Original series “The Umbrella Academy” is now available for streaming in full on the service. We posted the Official Trailer for the Dark Horse Comics inspired series in a post you can see by clicking the hyperlinked text. I’ve also repeated the past seasons premise and main casting for good measure. Take a look.
The Umbrella Academy is set in a universe where 43 women around the world give birth simultaneously at noon on October 1, 1989, despite none of them showing any sign of pregnancy until labor began. Seven of the children are adopted by eccentric billionaire Sir Reginald Hargreeves and turned into a superhero team that he calls “The Umbrella Academy.” Hargreeves gives the children numbers rather than names, until all but one are eventually named by their robot-mother, Grace, as Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Ben, and Vanya. While putting six of his children to work fighting crime, Reginald keeps Vanya apart from her siblings’ activities, as she supposedly demonstrates no powers of her own.
The first season is set in the present day, where Luther is part ape and has lived on the Moon for four years, Allison is a famous actress, Vanya is a violinist, Klaus has a drug addiction, Five disappeared sixteen years earlier, Ben, now deceased, is a ghost able to converse only with Klaus, and Diego has become a vigilante with a penchant for trouble. The estranged siblings learn that Reginald has died and gather for his funeral. Five returns from the future, revealing that a global apocalypse is imminent, but is chased by time-travelling operatives Hazel and Cha-Cha. Meanwhile, the reunited siblings try to uncover the secrets behind Reginald Hargreeves’ life, as their dysfunctional relationships are strained further.
The second season sees the siblings scattered in Dallas throughout different times in the early 1960s (as a result of the events of the first season), establishing lives for themselves. Five arrives there on November 25, 1963, minutes before a nuclear doomsday that is linked to JFK not being assassinated, but with the help of Hazel manages to travel back ten days. While being hunted by a trio of Swedish assassins, Five finds his siblings, who have each made new lives, and attempts to reunite them in order to stop this new apocalypse. (c/o Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having already pointed out in the trailer post that we referenced up above for those who missed it, I have not watched any of the series and will not be starting my journey with season three. I will close in the same fashion and ask if you out there in the readership are watching and if you are excited for the next chapter. Chime in down below and let me know what you think. That’s all for me on this one, see you next time around. Please keep safe out there.
