Here’s a good news, bad news situation. The good news? The Umbrella Academy Season 4 is heading your way in 2024. The bad news is we don’t have a premiere date or info on what the final season of the Netflix series is about. But, thanks to a cast teaser and new poster out of the streamer’s Geeked Week, we at least have some new Umbrella Academy Content™️. And, more thankfully, some mysterious clues.
In the new poster, which you can see below, Netflix is teasing that the time and dimension jumping series is about to enter “The Final Timeline.” Most of the poster, laid out in the style of a subway map, is recapping the various convoluted timelines of the past three seasons. This visual reference also picks up on the final shot of the Season 3 finale, with Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min) riding the subway to, presumably, work.
However, if you look closer you’ll notice there are a few “stops” on the subway that are marked “Year Unknown.” Those are: “Ben Released;” “Viktor Taken;” “Luther Returns Home;” and “Diego Back in Action.” While these could refer to events from the prior seasons, these may be teases for the cast’s new status quo in Season 4. The Umbrella Academy separated at the end of Season 3, heading to find new lives without their powers in a brand new reality. So is this where they pick up?
The Umbrella Academy Cast Teases You Should “Expect Nothing”
In a video released by Netflix (also below), the cast wasn’t a lot of help, giving out vague statements interspersed with shots of the first table read for Season 4. “They can expect us in marketing material, trying to dance around getting people excited without saying anything,” quipped Aidan Gallagher, who plays Five on the series.
Getting slightly more specific, Emmy Raver-Lampman, who plays Allison Hargreeves, added that there, are “some incredible new characters and new villains who are super exciting.” And Robert Sheehan, who plays Klaus, was the opposite. “Fans: expect nothing, and you will gain everything,” said Sheehan, true to the far-out guru nature of his character.
You can watch the video below for a whole lot more adorable nothingness and speculate wildly about what’s going on with that poster. Or perhaps, as Sheehan suggests: expect nothing.
