Sparrow Academy.

#1 – Justin Cornwall as charming, chiseled, colossus Marcus,

#4 – Jake Epstein is Alphonso, whose body and face are scarred from years of crime fighting.

#5 – Genesis Rodriguez is Sloane, a romanic and dreamer whose obligations to her family keep her tethered to the Academy.

#6 – Cazzie David is loner-under-a-hoodie Jayne, who has a fear-inducing snarl. Her only friend is Alphonso.

#7 – Not yet cast – Christopher is an existential dread-inducing psykronium cube. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator.

Where did the Sparrow Academy come from?

The Hargreeves siblings avoided another apocalypse in 1960s Dallas at the end of season 2 but on their return to the present discovered they’d  created an alternate universe — one where their adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves and brother Ben never died.

Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore).

Sparrow Ben (Justin H. Min)

And The Umbrella Academy is The Sparrow Academy.
