Season 3 of Netflix’s comic book adaptation released last Wednesday, and there’s currently no announcement about the show’s fourth season. Based on series creator Steve Blackman’s initial plan for the show, if the fourth season is announced, that would be the last season of the show.
“I don’t know how many seasons Netflix wants to go. I pitched them Season 4, and I know the beginning, middle and end ” Says Blackman “When I started the show, I really only knew the first four seasons in my mind.”
“Netflix may want more than that,” he adds, “but I have a sweet thought of where I think the show should end and where we’re going.”
The Umbrella Academy‘s third season ended with the newly created kugelblitz devouring the universe as we know it. Sir Reginald attempted to reprogram the universe entirely before it was destroyed, but his process was interrupted by Allison; thus, the remaining Umbrella Academy and Sparrow Academy siblings were transported to a seemingly half-formed world where they no longer possess their powers.
“There are going to be repercussions, if we’re lucky enough to have a Season 4, of the incomplete programming of the universe,” Blackman reveals. “Someone asked me, ‘Why would [Reginald] leave the kids in such a bad place?’ I would argue that he thinks he might be leaving them in a good place. They’ve been complaining about their powers and who they are, and now he’s saying, ‘Look, you’re free. You don’t have powers anymore, there’s nothing holding you back. Live your lives.’ The audience gets to decide whether Hargreeves did a good or bad thing for them.”
If the fourth season is announced, would you like it to end with it Or do you want more of this show?
