In the clip, the Sparrows are working out on treadmills, while discussing how they would love to crush some umbrellas. The scene gives us a clear look at the new team from Season 3. First, we have Marcus (Justin Cornwell), the leader of the Sparrows who’s gifted with super strength and super intelligence. Then, there’s Fei (Britne Oldford), Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez), Jayme (Cazzie David), and Alphonso (Jake Epstein). The alternate timeline team also includes their own version of Ben (Justin H. Min), who’s still got his same tentacular powers. Finally, the seventh member of the Sparrow Academy is a mysterious sentient cube. The scene ends with Marcus asking his siblings to be smart about their next move since they can profit from the Umbrella Academy showing up in their timeline.
Based on the comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy follows the story of foster super siblings who have to deal with the damage a life dedicated to fighting crime can cause children. The series was created by showrunner Steve Blackman.
Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy also brings back Tom Hopper as Luther, David Castañeda as Diego, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison, Aidan Gallagher as Five, Elliot Page as Viktor, Ritu Arya Lila Pitts, Robert Sheehan as Klaus, and Colm Feore as Sir Reginald Hargreeves.
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 hits Netflix on June 22. Check the Geeked Week panel for the series below which features the new clip:
Here’s the synopsis for Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy.
After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?
