Fans of The Umbrella Academy, get excited – filming has wrapped on the third season.
The cast of the hugely popular Netflix series announced the news on showrunner Steve Blackman’s Instagram.
Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Cameron Britton all teased what fans could look forward to in season three.
Teasing what’s to come, Elliot, who plays Vanya Hargreeves in the series, explained: “I’m stoked because I can’t wait for you to see it, but I’m sad because I’m going to miss everybody now filming’s over.”
Meanwhile, Emmy, who stars in The Umbrella Academy as Alison Hargreeves, said: “Wow. I don’t think the world is ready for this. I think it’s our best season yet.”
The Umbrella Academy has proven to be a runaway success for Netflix since in debuted in 2018.
After it was the streaming service’s sixth-most watched show in 2020, a third season was ordered that November.
For those of you less familiar with the genre-bending series, The Umbrella Academy follows a group of adopted siblings all born during an extremely unusual phenomenon. After going their separate ways, the family ‘reunites’ to solve the mystery behind their father's death.
In the second season's finale, which saw the group return back to their present day timeline having previously been transported into the 1960s, they find they’ve messed with the previously established timeline.
Travelling back to an alternate universe, the siblings found their father and brother Ben were still alive.
The Umbrella Academy also had to deal with the news that their father, Reginald, had created a rival group, called The Sparrow Academy.
While the cast have been cagey about what we can expect from the new season, Steve Blackman has previously said he hopes to explore more of the Hargreeves’ family history in the show’s third outing.
“Trying to understand their origin is one of the themes we are going to address next year,” he said.
"The first season was meet the family. Season two was get to know the family. Season three is, who are we and where did we come from? What are we as superheroes? [That] is really a story I'd love to think about more in season three.”
We can’t wait…
The Umbrella Academy is available to stream on Netflix.
