Umbrella Academy gets a third season

That misfit family of superheroes is returning.

Netflix has announced today that The Umbrella Academy will be coming back for a third season.

The series follows the adventures of a family of seven adopted siblings who were taken in by an eccentric billionaire and trained to become a superhero team known as The Umbrella Academy.

During the first season, the team dealt with time-travelling agents and a global apocalypse. Season two wasn’t met with the same praise as the family was forced to go back in time but spent much of the season dealing with the issues of the era they were in rather than the apocalypse they were supposed to be working to stop. The show shifted away from being a superhero series to being more of a drama.

Based on the finale of season two it seems the show will be getting back to its superhero roots with the family facing what their meddling in the past has done to the present.

The show is based on the Dark Horse comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.
