Meet the Sparrows on THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY When Season 3 Drops June 22nd

Meet the Sparrow Academy on Netflix’s smash hit The Umbrella Academy when season 3 drops June 22nd.

The Toronto-filmed series had double the cast this season.

After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns. Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline.

Showrunner: Canadian Steve Blackman.

Cast: Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin Min, Ritu Arya, Adam Godley, Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Genesis Rodriguez, Cazzie David, Jake Epstein and Colm Feore.

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.
