“From the time I started on the show five years ago and met Gerard, he talked a lot about where he wanted to go. We shared some ideas,” Blackman says. “I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to do in the fourth season.”
And just what will that idea be for season 4? It looks like we’ll get to find out soon.
Will There Be The Umbrella Academy Season 4?
Yes, there will be! Netflix was apparently moved by Blackman’s four-year plan for the series as on Aug. 25, 2022, it confirmed a fourth and final season for The Umbrella Academy.
“I’m so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings’ journey we began five years ago,” Blackman, who returns as showrunner, said in a statement. “But before we get to that conclusion, we’ve got an amazing story ahead for season four, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes.”
It’s unknown when The Umbrella Academy season 4 will premiere but with the renewal announcement, production in Toronto should begin soon. The previous three seasons of the show have premiered in February 2019, July 2020, and June 2022, respectively.
