Almost two months after Netflix confirmed the release date of the third season of The Umbrella Academy', the streaming platform has treated fans to a handful of first-look photos.
Promising action a’plenty, Luther and Viktor can be seen standing next to each other in one snapshot, with both characters clearly unsettled by something off camera.
In another, Viktor and Allison appear deep in conversation as they stroll side-by-side down a highstreet, while Five gets his slouch on in the backseat of a car in a third still.
Elsewhere, a very chirpy Klaus can be seen throwing his arms into the air while sitting on a top bunk, but perhaps most excitingly of all, we get our first look at Ben, who now appears very much alive.
Needless to say, fans were delighted by Netflix’s tweet, with one person declaring: “I AM SO F*****G EXCITED.” Us too, buddy, us too.
Another added: “I can’t wait!” and all a third could do was mash their keyboard in excitement, resulting in: “IMCIDNDKNDJSJD AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH.”
Back in March, Netflix confirmed on Instagram that the show’s third season would drop on 22 June and that the likes of Tom Hopper, Elliot Page, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore would all be reprising their roles.
The third instalment of the superhero series will see the Hargreeves return from the 1960s to find reality has done a whoopsie, and the Sparrows are now in charge.
Cue new characters played by the likes of Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Cazzie David and Euphoria’s very own Javon Walton.
A teaser released in March gave viewers their first look at The Sparrow Academy - an almost identical school to Umbrella, but believed to be built with a better set of children.
Netflix’s accompanying synopsis read: “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?”
