The Umbrella Academy season 4 might be finally on its way. However, we don’t yet know when exactly the new episodes will be arriving on Netflix. Vanya, who is played by Elliot Page has recently revealed that season 4 is currently filming. Therefore, we can expect a while longer yet for the premiere date. However, in the meantime, the plot is being kept secretive. However, there are still a few hints that give us an idea of what’s likely to come up. For one thing, the Umbrella Academy is totally ready to make their debut – and that could spell difficulties for the Hargreaves.
We’ve given our best to estimate when we might be greeted with a trailer, and when we might ultimately be able to stream season 4 on the streaming platform. Moreover, there’s a new set of pictures to peruse for plot hints. Also, there is a clip with Tom Hopper, Elliot Page, and Emmy Raver-Lampman talking about the last installment of the series. Therefore, scroll up to check out everything there is to know about The Umbrella Academy season 4.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Premiere Date
Netflix has confirmed that production will not begin until February 2022. Furthermore, Elliot Page went on to Instagram to do her monthly revealing. Season 2 was announced back in April 2019 and started to air in July 2020. Therefore, using that same timescale we can make a guess that The Umbrella Academy season 4 might premiere sometime in February 2022. As of now, nothing has been revealed yet, though.
Furthermore, when we did our research, the season 2 release date was announced in May 2020. This was only two months in advance of the season premiere. Again, if we try to use the same timescale, that would mean that we should keep an eye out in December 2021.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Cast
Tom Hopper, Elliot Page, David Castañeda, Aidan Gallagher, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, and Justin H. Min are all confirmed to play their roles as the Hargreeves siblings. Furthermore, Ritu Arya will return as Lila. Colm Feore will be playing the role of Reginald Hargreeves, too.
The Umbrella Academy season 2 ending also introduced us to the “Sparrow Academy”. It is a new group of superheroes recently created by a still-alive Reginald in an alternative universe. Moreover, in that universe, our heroes are still alive. Justin H. Min will play an alternate-universe version of his act named Ben, alongside a host of unknown faces.
Justin Cornwell will portray Marcus, who is the leader of the Sparrows. Moreover, he keeps the family in check. Britne Oldford is Fei, a lonely misanthrope who’s mostly the smartest person in the show. Cazzie David will portray Jayme, a loner who doesn’t talk much and whose only close connection is Alphonso. Jake Epstein is Alphonso, armed with a great sense of humor. Furthermore, Genesis Rodriguez is a romantic dreamer Sloane.

According to Netflix, the last sparrow, Christopher, will be portrayed by Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube. Christopher is trustworthy, loyal, and can turn a room freezing cold. He can also induce paralyzing fear. On one hand, it may create more questions than it answers, at least we know the reason as to why there was a giant cube at the finale of season 2 now.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Trailer: When Can We Expect One?
The season2 trailer dropped just over three weeks before the season aired. Therefore, it looks like we might have to wait for a long time for our first sneak peek of season 4. Furthermore, this might not happen until 2022. However, The Umbrella Academy season 2 is one of Netflix’s most popular TV series. Therefore, the streamer may put out a trailer sooner in order to keep up the momentum.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Plot
Season 4 ended with the lead group managing to save the world once again. However, on one hand, while they may have managed to come back from the ’60s to 2019, things have altered. Instead of creating the Umbrella Academy, Reginald started the “Sparrow Academy”. It is a new group of super-humans that are introduced at the very final. However, their faces are not yet revealed, but we do know Number One is still alive. Showrunner Steve Blackman said that the season 4 premiere will be named “Meet the Family”. Therefore, we may be getting to know this new team sooner rather than later.
Furthermore, we also got a good gander at the Sparrow Academy recently. It is all thanks to a tweet from Justin H. Min. the tweet shows off the cast in sports jackets, where everyone is having a shirt with a matching logo. The tweet was captioned “let the games begin,” along with emojis of an umbrella and a bird. This might be a tease to the rivalry we can hope to see between the Sparrows and the Hargreeves in season 4.
Digital Spy also revealed a set photo that shows the team of the Sparrow Academy standing over Luther. in that, Luther is lying on the ground alongside a streetlight that’s been kicked over.
As for what we might expect from the end of season 4, a video from Netflix seems to launch a mysterious ending – one that Emmy Raver-Lampman is not even aware of. “I actually have no clue what’s gonna happen in the finale. It is weird to film and kind of not know what the end goal is. However, it is kind of, it’s great, I’m all here for it.” Tom Hopper and Elliot Page also shared their views on the fourth season in the clip.
The team also had a word with Tom Hopper and Robert Sheehan – who play Klaus and Luther – about what to hope for next. They did try to coy on details and also revealed what they would like to see. For one thing, they are super excited to make a feature-length episode. However, they are not so into those superhero movies whose main purpose is to dominate the box office. “I certainly appreciate the idea of doing unique proliferation,” Sheehan told GamesRadar. “The plan of it becoming a sort of a big superhero feel, I wouldn’t be going that far to be fairly honest.”
“I think the charm of the show is that it is very grounded and it’s not all superhero-ey stuff,” Hopper added. “We try to flavor it with the superhero stuff, however, the reason people love it is because of the characters behind the ‘superheroes’.”
Furthermore, the finale episode of season 2 teleported the Hargreeves family back to modern times. The actors would still willing to explore a few different eras all through time travel. “From season 1, you’re always mentioning where the show could go. I’d like to do take it to the Eighties, actually,” Hopper exclaimed.
It seems like producer Steve Blackman is happy to take his cast’s inputs on board. Therefore, we may see some of these ideas come to their final fruition. “We love hanging around in this world. It’s super fun,” Hopper said. “Furthermore, we all love working with each other. It’s quite a privilege to have the kind of show we have dreamt of and thus written.”
In terms of a broader view, Blackman did give GamesRadar+ some clues. “Trying to grasp their origin is one of the main themes we are going to address next year,” he said.
