‘The Umbrella Academy’ to See Shortened a Season 4!!

Showrunner and executive producer Steve Blackman has confirmed that The Umbrella Academy season 4 will only consist of six episodes.

“It’s true. But you’re going to love them,” Blackman tweeted (opens in new tab) in response to a fan in disbelief over the episode count.

Seasons 1-3 consisted of 10 episodes, each with a 40-60 minute runtime, making the fourth and final season the shortest of the bunch. It’s possible that this means the final episodes will be longer in length, with shows like Stranger Things doubling up their episode runtimes to create more cinematic, movie-length episodes.

Based on the comic book series created by Gerard Way, the series centers on The Hargreeves, a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who come together in order to solve the mystery of their father’s death – and the threat of an impending apocalypse. The cast includes Elliot Page, Robert Sheehan, Aiden Gallagher, David Castaneda, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Cameron Britton, Kate Walsh, and Genesis Rodriguez.

In November, Blackman shared a photo of the script for the season 4 premiere, titled, “The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want.” He captioned the image, “And so it begins…one last time.”

The Umbrella Academy season 4 does not yet have a release date, though – based on the two-year gap between prior seasons – we could expect it to arrive sometime between December 2023 and June 2024.
