The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Renewal Status 

It took a little longer than expected, but Netflix confirmed the renewal of The Umbrella Academy on Twitter. The renewal ultimately was bittersweet given that the show would also be the final season. 

Showrunner Steve Blackman on the renewal said:

“I’m so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreaves siblings’ journey we began five years ago. 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.” 

Last December 2022, rumors started across the final season that fills a smaller number of episodes than the seasons. On 14th December, Steve Blackman confirmed on Twitter that it might consist of six episodes including that they’ll be amazing. 

  • Ep 401- The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want- Steve Blackman and Jessse McKeown is the writer. 
  • Ep 402- TBD 
  • Ep 403- TBD 
  • Ep 404- TBD 
  • Ep- 405- TBD

The Umbrella Academy (Season 4)

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Expectations 

The world’s worst father 

Sir Reginald Hargreeves is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the worst fathers in the known universe. Simply a means to a selfish end, Reginald’s only reason for the adoption of the children of the Umbrella Academy and Sparrow Academy was so that he could reset the universe in his image, and be reunited with his dead wife, Abigail. 

Once his children realize that he’s alive, we can expect less than a civil visit from the Hargreeves family. We still don’t know the full extent of what Reginald’s universe reset means for his children, but in true Reginald fashion, we expect they’ve been screwed over again. 

With the removal of their powers, the Umbrella and Sparrow Academy are a significantly reduced threat to Reginald. Life will be dramatically different for the Hargreeves family, who, without their powers will now experience a new form of vulnerability. This means no more bus ball for Klaus. 

This also begs the question, in this world did Reginald adopt the Hargreeves children? Regardless of whether or not he did, this could mean that all of their respective mothers are still alive. After finally making a bond with Reginald, it was all for naught, so while Klaus will still be feeling the pain of betrayal, if he realizes his mother could still be alive, he’ll be on a road trip to Pennsylvania immediately. 

If some of the Hargreeves have a better life without their powers, such as Allison, it may take some convincing to return to their former lives. 

Blackman, in an interview with Netflix, said on the subject: 

“… the siblings losing their powers isn’t going to be the only oddity in this timeline. Some new enemies 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.” 

Aidan Gallagher has teased that we could see the show’s characters be more akin to their comic book counterparts. In an interview with Collider, he told them, “We may see a more comic book version of Five in Season 4.” 

Gallagher also spoke about what we could expect from his character, saying: 

“I think he’ll go on mission mode and try to figure out how to make everything right with this new, strange reality that Hargreaves has made up. I don’t know. It may bring out a more mission-oriented version of Five. It’s very final, the way it resolves. It’s this new world, with them not having powers. I’d like to see some of the characters, at least for the time being, settle into that reality. I don’t know if Five is that type of personality. I think he’s still gonna wrestle with it, but we’ll have to see. Let’s hope it gets picked up.” 

Timeskip? 

In real life, Aidan Gallagher, the actor for Five is 18 years old and will turn 19 in September. By the time we expect the fourth season of The Umbrella Academy to arrive on Netflix, he’ll be almost 21 years old. Now, while Gallagher plays an extremely convincing 15-year-old, it won’t be long before he outgrows the look of one. A simple time skip would allow the actor’s real-life growth to be worked into the story of Five looking older than a 15-year-old. 

Included in the time skip, we’d get to see how drastically different the lives of the Hargreeves have changed. Diego and Lila will have had their baby, if Luther can find Sloane, the newlyweds may be able to enjoy a few years of marital bliss, and Ben, clearly upset by the loss of his powers, may begin his plan to takedown Hargreeves. 

 Defected family 

All of the Hargreeves have been through their trials, tribulations, and trauma, and despite how dysfunctional they are, they have remained as a family. But in a brand new universe without powers, the choice to move on with their lives could fracture the relationships of the family who want their powers back. 

Allison’s betrayal will still sting, and while she is reunited with Claire and Ray, she may seek to repair the burning bridge with her siblings. 

When asked about whether Allison is in a different timeline, showrunner Steve Blackman said: 

“… Allison is not in a different timeline, she’s in the same timeline. In fact, Ray and Claire do exist in this timeline now. That was the dark deal she made with Hargreaves, to help Hargreeves bring the family together. This is what she got.” 

We also see Ben from season 3 in the post-credits scene but is this a new Ben? Blackman said: 

“It’s not a different timeline Ben. It’s the Ben we know from Season 3, but how that works and why we’re seeing him will be a Season 4 reveal.”

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Production Updates 

The Production of the fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy is currently penciled in to start in February 2023, according to multiple production sources seen by What’s on Netflix. 

Updated production listings suggest the show gets filming on season 4 on February 6th, 2023, and runs through to May 19th, 2023. 

There is one source that puts the show’s budget once again at between $7,000,000 to $10,000,000 per episode. 

On February 1st, 2023, Steve Blackman confirmed that filming was underway, and Netflix themselves posted (alongside a picture) that production had started. 

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Production Status and Release Date 

Production on the fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy is currently penciled in to start in February 2023, according to multiple production sources seen by What’s on Netflix. 

Another production resource stated that the series is due to film between Q1 2023 and Q3 2023, which could mean the series doesn’t wrap until September 2023 at the latest. 

One source puts the show’s budget at between $7,000,000 to $10,000,000 per episode. 

If we look back at the production schedule of the third season, production prep didn’t begin until October 2020, and filming began several months later, in February 2021. Filming ended on August 28th, 2021. That’s perhaps not the greatest comparison, however, given it was filmed throughout the height of the pandemic. 

Seasons 1 and 2 of the show took around 5-6 months in development and then a further 6-8 months of post-production and localization before heading to Netflix. 

Steve Blackman, the showrunner of The Umbrella Academy, has stated that the time to produce each season of The Umbrella Academy takes up to 18 months before its eventual release on Netflix, so this lines up. 

In this case, our best estimate is that season 4 of The Umbrella Academy will release in Spring 2024.  

The Umbrella Academy Season 4: Cast 

Gerald as Gene 

In this, we will see Gerald as a small-town mayor. He is a quiet but imposing intellectual who knows his way around a Smith & Wesson. He has a dogmatic belief that he lives in a broken world and aims to fix it, even if it means stoking an insurrection to get it. Gerald never has to raise his voice. Because if you make the mistake of crossing him, his glare is enough to make you wish you hadn’t…” 

We reported recently that we’ve heard that Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation and The Last of Us) is currently in talks for the role but Netflix did not comment on our story. 

Bea as Jean  

In this series, we will see Bea as the community college professor who is an unhinged conspiracy theorist seeking to fix a broken world if only to restore her grandiose sense of place within it. Brilliant yet embittered, she is meticulous, headstrong, and deeply paranoid of anyone who challenges her beliefs… 

We can reveal that Megan Mullaley is currently in talks for this role. Netflix did not respond to a request for comment. 

Kailee 

Kailee is just a woman with a mundane life working away at a quaint diner. Sarcastic with a wicked sense of humor. She is friendly to her regulars and has an absolute disdain for assholes. But her tough exterior hides a deeper and darker emotional life. She’s spent most of her life off the grid, hiding away from society. After years of isolation and loneliness, she’s finally ready to find her truth and connect with someone who loves her unconditionally… 

Cassius Newman 

Cassius Newman is mainly an attorney who gave it all up to live in a commune. 

We expect to see the following cast members return in the fourth season of The Umbrella Academy: 

  • #U7 Viktor – Elliot Page 
  • #U1 Luther –  Tom Hopper 
  • #U2 Diego – David Castañeda 
  • #U3 Allison – Emmy Raver-Lampman 
  • #U4 Klaus – Robert Sheehan 
  • #U5 – Aidan Gallagher 
  • #S2 Ben – Justin H. Min 
  • Sir Reginald – Colm Feore 
  • Lila Pitts – Ritu Arya 
  • Pogo – Adam Godley 
  • #S5 Sloane – Genesis Rodriguez 
  • Abigail – Liisa Repo-Martell 

In February 2023, we exclusively learned of several new characters that will feature in season 4 of The Umbrella Academy and two names currently eyed to star, including Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally. 

  • Gerald aka Gene – An eccentric small-town mayor. 
  • Bea aka Jean – A community college professor who is an unhinged conspiracy theorist. 
  • Kailee – A waitress with a secret. 
  • Cassius Newman – An attorney who gave it all up to live in a commune. 

On February 27th it was confirmed by Netflix that Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and David Cross had joined the cast of season 4. The casting of Cross confirms the new character, Sy Grossman. 

It’s unclear if the deceased members of The Sparrow Academy will be returning as it’s still unclear how much of the universe has been changed by Sir Reginald. 

Netflix has confirmed additional casting news will be announced at a later date.
