The Umbrella Academy She may have only recently returned for her third season, but fans are already eager for updates on the show’s future. As of this writing on June 28, 2022, Netflix has not yet canceled or renewed the popular sci-fi series, but creator Steve Blackman already has ideas for one The Umbrella Academy Season 4, ideas that could include the show’s ultimate ending.
Let’s face it, it’s not often that a Netflix series lasts more than three seasons, but it does last four or five. but The Umbrella Academy has a passionate following and is one of Netflix’s most popular shows. Given that it secured three seasons and left things on a cliffhanger in the final season, I don’t think Netflix will abruptly cancel the show. If anything, the streamer will likely announce a final season.
According to Blackman, he would be fine with that. He recently spoke to TVLine about his plans for the series and said he introduced them The Umbrella Academy Season 4 already, adding that when he started the show he “really only knew the first four seasons.”
Status updates for Season 4 of Umbrella Academy
Blackman’s plans are different from Gerard Way’s (who wrote the comics the series is based on). Apparently, Way has ideas to continue making comics for much longer, even another decade. But even as the source material goes on, Blackman says he has “something [he thinks] is an end to the TV show.”
“Netflix might want more than that,” he adds, “but I have a sweet idea of where I think the show should end up and where we’re going.”
At the end of the show’s third season (SPOILER) all the Hargreeves siblings lose their abilities (though maybe not Allison, it’s still unclear) after Sir Reginald basically resets the entire timeline and universe. It’s still unclear what this new world will look like and if any characters outside of the Hargreeves family have survived.
Regarding what fans can expect in a possible fourth season, Blackman told TVLine:
“If we’re lucky enough to get a fourth season, there will be implications of the incomplete programming of the universe. Someone asked me, “Why should I do that? [Reginald] Do you leave the children in such a bad place?’ I would argue that he thinks he could leave her in a good place. They’ve been complaining about their powers and who they are, and now he’s like, ‘Look, you’re free. You have no more strength, nothing is holding you back. Live your life.” The audience can decide if Hargreeves has done something good or bad for them.”
Blackman left the characters and even this strange, “half-formed” universe in a precarious, interesting, and potentially story-rich place until the end of Season 3. I would be fine with that The Umbrella Academy Season 4 ends the show when it aligns with Blackman’s plans for the series. What about you?
