Netflix has confirmed that there will be a third season The Umbrella Academy and it starts production next year.


The streaming giant took to Twitter to reveal production on a third helping of the show will kick off in February.

Netflix has said stars including Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore will all be reprising their roles for the upcoming third season.

As yet, there are no plot details, but Netflix has said the third season will consist of 10 one-hour-long episodes and will start production in Toronto, Canada next year.

Speaking to LADbible earlier this year, Tom Hopper (Luther) and Robert Sheehan (Klaus) both said they would be very keen to do a third season.

Hopper said: "Yeah, we love hanging around in this world. It's a lot of fun. And we all love working with each other.

"It's quite a gift to have the kind of show we have really because we have a showrunner [Steve Blackman] who's very collaborative.

"So it's very freeing as an actor. And it's great to have that source material to see where we could go, what we could do. As you saw from the first two seasons, there are influences from the comic, absolutely.

"But it also allows us to deviate from that structure a little bit. And I love seeing where Steve Blackman's mind can go past the comics, how broad he can take it. And what you can put these characters through ultimately.

"He has an amazing ability to individually put us all through hell and back in a very unique way. So yeah, I'd love to go back and do a bunch more of these."

Sheehan said: "I'd love to do one. A graphic novel is pure comic escapism.

"There's oodles of time travel, and powers, and it's very, very earthly - whereas I think Steve's intuition is always to bring it back and make it more make the characters' journeys.

"Steve started talking about, well, maybe one more. You're always talking about seasons, you know, from season one, you're always talking about where the show could go. So yeah, I mean, there's always conversations happening about future seasons.

"I'm always hatching pipe dreams and sending emails to Steve."

Seasons one and two of The Umbrella Academy are on Netflix now.
