We’ve got your complete guide to The Umbrella Academy season 4, including our best theories on the upcoming plot as well as news on casting.
About the Umbrella Academy
The Umbrella Academy is an American superhero television series developed by Steve Blackman and Jeremy Slater for Netflix. It is based on the comic book series of the same name created by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. The series follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superhumans who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death and the threat of an impending apocalypse.
The Umbrella Academy stars Ellen Page, Mary J. Blige, Cameron Britton, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, and Justin H. Min. The first season was released on February 15, 2019. The series was renewed for a second season, which was released on July 31, 2020. The series was renewed for a third season in November 2020 and released on June 22, 2022. In August 2022, The Umbrella Academy Season 4 was announced as the final season. However, there is no release date known for the series finale yet.
The Umbrella Academy has generally received positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds a rating of 77%, based on 96 reviews, with an average rating of 7.3/10. The site’s critical consensus reads, “An intriguing blend of genres and style, The Umbrella Academy is well-acted enough to overcome its occasionally familiar story beats — albeit just barely.” On Metacritic, the first season scored 65 out of 100 based on 27 reviews, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”
Critics have praised the show’s visual style, acting, writing, and soundtrack. However, some reviewers criticized the pacing of the first season and found the plot confusing.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Release Date
Though there is no official release date for season 4 of The Umbrella Academy, we can make a prediction. There was a gap of just under two years between seasons 2 and 3 and around 18 months between seasons 1 and 2. Season 3 came out in June 2022, so new episodes could arrive anytime between December 2023 and June 2024.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Plot Speculation
Viewers were left speechless by the Season 3 conclusion. The Umbrellas and some Sparrows were forced to live in an alternate reality during the battle to rescue the world. They lose their abilities in this realm, and Sloan’s disappearance worsens things. Does the future hold another apocalypse for our beloved characters? Does Allison still exist or not? The Umbrella Academy season 4 is the only time these questions will be answered.
We’ll see how things turn out after the Hargreeves reset the universe in the season 3 finale. Additionally, based on what happens in the mid-credits scene, it seems like Umbrella Ben is back while Sparrow Ben still exists as well, which creates more complicated problems.
Is Luther able to find Sloane? And perhaps most importantly, is Reginald’s late wife Abigail actually back from the dead?
At the end of season 3, Ray from 1963 appears in the present day. This probably has something to do with the Reginald/Alison deal we’re yet to learn about. In addition, it’s safe to say that a world-ending event will occur eventually.
The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Cast
It seems safe to assume that the Hargreeves siblings- Elliot Page (Viktor), Tom Hopper (Luther), David Castañeda (Diego), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Alison), Robert Sheehan (Klaus), and Aidan Gallagher(Five) as well as Justin H. Min will return for The Umbrella Academy’s new season. However, which version of Ben he’ll be playing was thrown into question by the season 3 mid-credits scene.
It appears that Colm Feore will return as Reginald Hargreeves in season 3. This is based on the interpretation of the finale, which made it seem like Reginald’s late wife, Abigail, was back from death. She was played by Liisa Repo-Martell in her brief but significant season 1 appearance.
Ritu Arya (Lila), Diego’s love interest and the Handler’s adopted daughter may return for season 4. Yusuf Gatewood (Ray) is also in talks to return as Alison’s husband from 1963. As for Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane), who plays one of the Sparrows, it is unknown if she will return after disappearing at the end of season 3.
Is The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Delayed?
If we’re hoping for a June/July release date, that’s probably when we’ll see the show next – though it won’t be until 2024. (It takes a lot of time and effort to wrangle together a dozen cast members and create all the visual effects needed to bring the show to life. Unless they start filming quickly, it won’t be ready within one year.) One thing is certain; the cast will miss being on the show just as much as we’ll miss watching it.
