In three weeks (give or take a day… you know how screwed up time can be in and around the show), Netflix & Showrunner/EP Steve Blackman's adaptation of Gerard Way & Gabriel Ba's The Umbrella Academy will be massaging our screens with all of its Season 3 goodness. With the streaming service set to unleash Geeked Week 2022 online next week, we're expecting to be hearing a lot more about what we can expect. But for today? A chance to look back at a moment of true family bonding from the official trailer… bonded by the fact that they all think their alt-reality siblings are (and we're quoting here) "dickheads." But even in that rare moment of familial unity? They still find the time to mess with Five (Aidan Gallagher)…
Just in case you got caught up in all of the madness from the official trailer and forgot to take notes, here's an "abbreviated" version focusing on what our dysfunctional family thinks of their Sparrow Academy counterparts:
Now here's a look back at the newest preview images, official trailer, season overview, and poster key art for Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, hitting streaming screens on June 22nd:
Now here's the official trailer for the return of Netflix's The Umbrella Academy, with Season 3 dropping on June 22nd:
After putting a stop to 1963's doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren't exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone's concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad's new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?
