When will ‘The Umbrella Academy’ season 3 drop on Netflix?
The release date for season 3 of The Umbrella Academy has just been announced, so book your stay fast because we are going to Hotel Oblivion! The Umbrella Academy season 3 is set to release in 2022 according to a teaser dropped by Netflix today.
The teaser, while simple, showcases the tangled web The Umbrella and Sparrow Academies will probably find themselves in as the Hargreeves try to make their way back home. From the ending image, however, we at least know the setting of that intense encounter: Hotel Oblivion.
Naturally, many Twitter users were excited to have some news about The Umbrella Academy season 3. We flew through the threads to find more information and the best reactions to the announcement of The Umbrella Academy season 3. Ring for the bellhop as we dive into what Hotel Oblivion is and what it means for season 3.
Names, names, names
Before the announcement today, we did have a little bit to go on for season 3 as we found out the names of the Sparrows a few months ago, including fan favorite Justin H. Min as Sparrow #2, Marcus (Justin Cornwell), Fei (Britne Oldford) Alphonso (Jake Epstein), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), Jayme (Cazzie David) and Christopher, the Dread-Inducing Psykronium Cube.
In June we got even more information from series co-creator Steve Blackman during Netflix’s Geeked Week: the episode titles. The premiere “Meet the Family”, “Kugelblitz” (Episode 4-yes its a real word, we checked) “Marigold” (Episode 6-comic fans will probably know this one) and “Six Bells” (Episode 9), which Blackman said will resonate much more once viewers have started watching the season.
The finale episode, however, has been a head scratcher for fans of the show as well as a great theory springboard for comic fans ever since: “Oblivion”. With the theory now confirmed, some are probably still wondering what Hotel Oblivion even is. Allow us to take your bags and enlighten you.
Hotel Oblivion is the second volume of comics for The Umbrella Academy, taking place after The Umbrella Academy: Dallas run and before The Umbrella Academy: Sparrow Academy run. It was written by Gerard Way and featured the odd locale that, in the comics, drew the scattered team back together.
Hotel Oblivion is a purgatory-like prison made for super-criminals in the comics that, during the third volume of the comic, becomes home for several of the Hargreeves siblings. Through a series of events, including a prison break, the Academy is able to get out only to come face to face with the Sparrow Academy.
Now obviously since the Sparrow Academy has already met our favorite super siblings, things might go a bit differently. The Hargreeves may get locked there by them or both teams might need to work together to get out. Either way, who can say no to a prison break? We are extremely excited for the new season and, according to Twitter, we aren’t the only ones.
