Netflix have confirmed that The Umbrella Academy will return once more – for its fourth and final season.

The ‘goodbye season’ follows 2022’s third instalment, and will see our favourite gang – Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore – reunite one more time.

Speaking to Tudum, showrunner Steve Blackman teases of what’s to come in terms of the story: “This new timeline has been dictated by Hargreeves, who reprogrammed the Universe at the end of the Season 3 finale. But because of Allison’s actions, he didn’t get to finish what he started before Allison pressed the reset button.

“So, the siblings losing their powers isn’t going to be the only oddity in this timeline. There are new enemies who want to see them wiped out of existence, but how do they manage without their powers? Is there even a way to get them back? The stakes have never been greater.”
