The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Teaser: The Sparrows Are Coming

TV's most dysfunctional superhero family is back for round three. Continuing their trend of being utterly chaotic, the Hargreeves heroes have now survived the apocalypse and altered the timeline. Through it all, they never managed to sort out their wide variety of very concerning daddy issues, but there's no time for that now — they have a multiverse to deal with!

Now, we have the first teaser for the long-awaited third season as well as a synopsis and release date. Mark your calendars, folks — the new season of "The Umbrella Academy" is coming to Netflix on June 22. 

Check out the season 3 teaser below.

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Teaser

At the end of season 2, the writers of "The Umbrella Academy" decided that one super-powered crime-fighting family just wasn't enough, so they threw in another. That's right, two teams for the price of one. 

Our original crew of Hargreeves spent the second season adjusting to life in 1960s Dallas, eventually reuniting over the course of the season to admittedly disastrous results. But in a way, things did work out in the end: the finale saw the siblings using a time-travel briefcase to jump forward into 2019. Of course, rather than finding themselves back where the first season left them, they ended up face to face with the world's worst father, Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore), five new children, a floating cube named Christopher, and their not-so-dead brother, Ben (Justin H. Min). It was a pretty huge cliffhanger and the wait for the next chapter has been a lot to ask. But now they've thrown us some good ol' fashioned crumbs.

The Mystery of Season 3

As for what more we can expect from season 3, that remains a bit of a mystery. While the previous seasons adapted their storylines from the first two volumes of the "The Umbrella Academy" comic run, the third season is veering off into uncharted territory. 

Here's the full synopsis:

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?

It looks like this season will be a loose adaptation of the third volume, "Hotel Oblivion," and the still unreleased fourth volume, "The Sparrow Academy." For comic fans, and those who hunt the internet for clues, this means going in blind. But there's always room for speculation.

The third season will likely dig deeper into the Hargreeves' relationships with their father, given the once-deceased Reginald now walks among them. Plenty has changed in the multiverse, but it's hard to imagine a version of Reginald that doesn't make our blood boil or send poor Diego (David Castañeda) spiraling. Luther (Tom Hopper) won't fare well back in his father's presence, either, and who's to say how Reginald will affect Vanya (Elliot Page)?

There's also the addition of Ben to think about, who's no longer a passenger of Klaus' (Robert Sheehan) abilities. But then again, this isn't the same Ben we're used to, and there's a whole team of Sparrows for us to worry about. If worse comes to worst, they're all pretty big question marks, making them all the more dangerous. 

Don't get me wrong, Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman) can be pretty terrifying when she puts her mind to it, but the Sparrows clearly have the superior mascot. What use is an umbrella in the world of heroes?
