Umbrella Academy Unveils New Cast Members For Season 3

Hit series The Umbrella Academy have announced a new cast for season three.

Following the season two finale in July 2020, Netflix revealed that new episodes would partially take place at Hotel Oblivion and a new timeline has been created by the Hargreeves siblings’ interference in the apocalypse.

In the new version of 2019, Justin H. Min’s Ben is now alive and well whilst the Sparrow Academy exists instead of The Umbrella Academy.

The show announced seven new faces on social media and in addition to Ben, the other Season 3 Sparrows will be played by Justin Cornwell (Training Day), Britne Oldford (The Flash), Jake Epstein (Designated Survivor), Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time), Cazzie David (Eighty-Sixed miniseries) and, last but not least, Dread-Inducing Psykronium Cube.

Netflix has said the series will consist of 10 one-hour-long episodes, with shooting taking place in Toronto, Canada.

However, not to worry as the likes of Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore will also be reprising their roles alongside Page for the upcoming third season.

Speaking to LADbible last year - before Netflix confirmed the show had been renewed - Hopper (Luther) and Sheehan (Klaus) both said they were 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."
