When is The Umbrella Academy Season 3 coming out?

The Umbrella Academy's "unique" release schedule will pit it against some of the most popular shows that are streaming today.


Would you believe us if we told you that it's been almost two years since we last saw the Hargreeve siblings?

Unlike Netflix's other popular shows, The Umbrella Academy hasn't gotten a spin-off yet.

As much as the COVID-19 pandemic has made it so like two years haven't passed since the world went into a standstill, it's true that a new season of The Umbrella Academy hasn't come out for as long. So, before we tell you when the next season is coming, you might want to start binging the first two seasons right now.

But, if you're ready to see the two Hargreeve siblings collide, we've got great news for you - you won't have to wait for too long.

After waiting for a long time, The Umbrella Academy is finally heading back to Netflix for its third season on Wednesday, June 22. You read that right, it is this Wednesday, which would be tomorrow (or the day after tomorrow, depending on where you live.)

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is unique for one key reason, Netflix isn't releasing it on a Friday.

As a streamer, Netflix is already different in that it drops entire seasons of its Originals like The Umbrella Academy in one go. This is a very binge-friendly approach that will allow the streamer to enjoy high viewing hours, which is how it measures the success of its shows. By launching new seasons on a Friday, Netflix is guaranteeing that people will have the entire weekend to check out the new episodes. This is why it's interesting that The Umbrella Season 3 is arriving on a Wednesday.

As surprising as it might seem, but The Umbrella Academy isn't one of Netflix's most-watched shows.

Perhaps Netflix wants to prove a point with the new release date? After all, the premiere of The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will coincide with the season finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi and the next episode of Ms. Marvel.

We'll find out more about how The Umbrella Academy will fare against Disney+'s most popular shows soon enough.
