They’re Back! The Hargreeves Gang Returns in the Final Season Trailer for Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’

The Umbrella Academy is just so wonderfully weird from start to finish. I don’t even just mean the series itself, the entire existence of its IP is so improbably awesome. Starting as a graphic novel series created by none other then “My Chemical Romance’ front man Gerard Way this franchise should have fallen on its face so many times but for the golden rule, Quality is King. The writing, performances, direction…hell, even the song choices, for the Netflix series have fired on all cylinders to the point that I’m still amazed we’re talking about the final season only 4 seasons into its run. I guess that’s this series final lesson in quality, get out while you’re on top.

The Umbrella Academy follows the Hargreeve’s children (now adults), a group that were each “adopted” from their biological families after displaying super heroic powers by millionaire philanthropist Reginald Hargreeves. Hargreeve’s molded them into a team of child heroes until, following a team members death, the team disbanded.

I don’t have enough space on this entire blog to cover the complexity of everything that’s unraveled in the last three seasons. Let’s just say after time-travel, multiple apocalypses, super-villans, and multiple realities before disbanding again at the end of season 3 the team must join up once more to make sense of the world left standing after the climatic battle at the end of the last season.

Check out the trailer below and look for The Umbrella Academy Season 4 on Netflix August 8th, 2024.


Official Synopsis:
“The Hargreeves siblings have scattered after the climactic showdown at the Hotel Oblivion led to a complete reset of their timeline. Stripped of their powers, each is left to fend for themselves and find a new normal – with wildly varying degrees of success. Yet the trappings of their uncanny new world prove too hard to ignore for very long. Their father Reginald, alive and well, has stepped out of the shadows and into the public eye, overseeing a powerful and nefarious business empire. A mysterious association known as The Keepers holds clandestine meetings believing the reality they’re living in is a lie and a great reckoning is coming. As these strange new forces conspire around them, the Umbrella Academy must come together one last time – and risk upsetting the shaky peace they’ve all endured so much to secure – to finally set things right.”
