The Umbrella Academy season 4 cast share BTS photos
The Umbrella Academy season four is on the way! Hooray.
We waited two whole years for The Umbrella Academy to grace us with a season three, after filming for the new series was postponed due to COVID. Netflix dropped 10 new S3 episodes back in June (and you can catch up on a season two recap here). *Spoilers to follow*.
S3 of the Netflix adaptation following our favourite adopted Hargreeves siblings picks up from where the season two finale left us. When the Hargreeves return to The Umbrella Academy, they learn that a different set of siblings called the Sparrow Academy live there, and they have super powers. We know the Hargreeves no longer have their powers, hinting they're in for a hard time with lots of twists and turns to unravel. And of course, fans already want a fourth season of the superhero show. So, without further ado, here's everything we know about The Umbrella Academy season four, including a potential release date, plot, cast, trailers, and more.
When will production of The Umbrella Academy season 4 begin?
It's official. The fourth and final season is now in production, thanks to Netflix confirming the news in a recent Twitter post. *Crying!*

The snap, which reads: "The final season of The Umbrella Academy is now in production!" includes cast members Elliot Page, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher and Tom Hopper plus other stars like David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Ritu Arya, Justin H. Min and showrunner Steve Blackman.
Sheehan, who plays Klaus Hargreeves also took to his own social media to update fans on the latest season, posting an Instagram photo with the caption: "Our last final and leg - the beginning of the End."
What have producers said about The Umbrella Academy season 4?
There's an exciting update thanks to The Umbrella Academy showrunner Steve Blackman. The producer took to Twitter to respond to rumours that season four of the Netflix show will only have six episodes - compared to 10 episodes in seasons one to three.
Still, the update isn't *too* negative, as Blackman also assured fans that they will "love" the new instalments. Hey, we didn't doubt it for a second!
Blackman quoted a fan tweet reading, "THERE IS NO WAY THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY S4 HAS 6 EPISODES STOP LYING THAT ISN'T TRUE STOP [sic]."
The showrunner responded, writing, "It’s true. But you’re going to love them."

Elsewhere, he added that S4 will be made up of "Six amazing episodes!" - so, yep, seems like there's lots to get excited about.
When was The Umbrella Academy season 4 confirmed?
Netflix and showrunner Steve Blackman announced The Umbrella Academy season four back in August 2022.
Blackman confirmed the news in an Instagram post, sharing that the Hargreeves will be reuniting for the last time. "So excited for one more season with the incredible Hargreeves siblings!!!" he wrote.
And via Digital Spy, he said: "I'm so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings' journey we began five years ago. But before we get to that conclusion, we've got an amazing story ahead for season four, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes."
Who's in The Umbrella Academy season 4 cast?
Now our prayers have been answered and another series has been given the green light, of course the entire Umbrella Academy has to be in it. That includes Luther (played by Tom Hopper), Diego (played by David Castañeda), Klaus (played by Robert Sheehan), Five (played by Aidan Gallagher), and Viktor (played by Elliot Page).
Considering the family no longer have their superpowers, we have a strong inkling that we could see certain people drop off into the afterlife. This includes Allison, the third sibling (played by Emmy Raver-Lampman), whose future was left open. Will she be alive following at the end of season three?
Lila (played by Ritu Arya), and Ben (Justin H Min) are likely to be in it too. Luther's wife Sloane (played by Genesis Rodriguez) has also disappeared into thin air, so it's debatable if she will make an appearance. As for The Sparrow Academy? Again, we really can't guess, so we'll just have to wait and see if Justin Cornwell (Marcus), Justin H. Min (Ben), Britne Oldford (Fei), Jake Epstein (Alphonso), Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane) and Cazzie David (Jayme) show their faces.
The Umbrella Academy season 4 plot: What will happen?
The Umbrella Academy season four plot is still hush hush with no hints floating around, but our guess is that it will likely lead off from season three's finale. So, what are you waiting for? Go and watch it RN to have your own guesses at the next potential storyline.
There's no doubt the Hargreeves siblings will be challenged with saving the world once again, with trouble to play out. Newlywed Luther is also on a mission to find his wife Sloan who disappeared, so we expect this to unravel in season three or potentially four.
Is there a The Umbrella Academy season 4 trailer?
We're sad to say there isn't! At least, not yet. But we'll be sure to let you know and share it with you as soon as we know. Watch this space...
When will The Umbrella Academy season 4 be released?
Unfortunately, we don't have a release date for S4 just yet. Season one was February 2019, season two was July 2020, and season three dropped two years later in mid-June 2022. So, we're hoping we'll see this one on screens by the end of 2023, if not 2024
The Umbrella Academy seasons one to three are streaming on Netflix now.
