What to anticipate from The Umbrella Academy season 4

The world’s greatest worst father

Sir Reginald Hargreeves is, with no shadow of a doubt, one of many worst fathers within the recognized universe. Merely a way to a egocentric finish, Reginald’s solely cause for the adoption of the kids of the Umbrella Academy and Sparrow Academy was in order that he may reset the universe in his picture, and be reunited together with his useless spouse, Abigail.

As soon as his youngsters notice that he’s alive, we will count on a lower than a civil go to from the Hargreeves household. We nonetheless don’t know the total extent of what Reginald’s universe reset means for his youngsters, however in true Reginald trend, we count on they’ve been screwed over once more.

A life with out powers

With the elimination of their powers, the Umbrella and Sparrow Academy are a considerably diminished risk to Reginald. Life shall be dramatically completely different for the Hargreeves household, who, with out their powers will now expertise a brand new type of vulnerability. This implies no extra bus ball for Klaus.

This additionally begs the query, on this world did Reginald undertake the Hargreeves youngsters? No matter whether or not or not he did, this might imply that each one of their respective moms are nonetheless alive. After lastly making a bond with Reginald, it was all for naught, so whereas Klaus will nonetheless be feeling the ache of betrayal, if he realizes his mom may nonetheless be alive, he’ll be on a highway journey to Pennsylvania instantly.

If a number of the Hargreeves have a greater life with out their powers, comparable to Allison, it could take some convincing to return to their former lives.

Blackman, in an interview with Netflix, mentioned on the topic:

“… the siblings losing their powers isn’t going to be the only oddity in this timeline. There are new enemies who want to see them wiped out of existence, but how do they manage without their powers? Is there even a way to get them back? The stakes have never been greater.”

Aidan Gallagher has teased that we may see the present’s characters be extra akin to their comedian guide counterparts. In an interview with Collider, he instructed them, “We may see a more comic book version of Five in Season 4.”

Gallagher additionally spoke about what we may count on from his character, saying:

“I think he’ll go on mission mode and try to figure out how to make everything right with this new, strange reality that Hargreeves has made up. I don’t know. It may bring out a more mission-oriented version of Five. It’s very final, the way it resolves. It’s this new world, with them not having powers. I’d like to see some of the characters, at least for the time being, settle into that reality. I don’t know if Five is that type of personality. I think he’s still gonna wrestle with it, but we’ll have to see. Let’s hope it gets picked up.”


In actual life, Aidan Gallagher, the actor for 5 is eighteen years previous and can flip 19 in September. By the point we count on the fourth season of The Umbrella Academy to reach on Netflix, he’ll be nearly 21 years previous. Now, whereas Gallagher performs a particularly convincing 15-year-old, it gained’t be lengthy earlier than he outgrows the look of 1. A easy time-skip would permit the actor’s real-life progress to be labored into the story of 5 trying older than a 15-year-old.

Included within the time skip, we’d get to see how drastically completely different the lives of the Hargreeves have modified. Diego and Lila can have had their child, if Luther can discover Sloane, the newlyweds could possibly take pleasure in just a few years of marital bliss, and Ben, clearly upset by the lack of his powers, could start his plan to takedown Hargreeves.

A fractured household

The entire Hargreeves have been via their trials, tribulations, and trauma, and regardless of how dysfunctional they’re, they’ve remained as a household. However in a model new universe with out powers, the selection to maneuver on with their lives may fracture the relationships of the household who need their powers again.

Allison’s betrayal will nonetheless sting, and whereas she is reunited with Claire and Ray, she could search to restore the burning bridge along with her siblings.

When requested about whether or not Allison is in a distinct timeline, showrunner Steve Blackman mentioned:

“… Allison is not in a different timeline, she’s in the same timeline. In fact, Ray and Claire do exist in this timeline now. That was the dark deal she made with Hargreeves, to help Hargreeves bring the family together. This is what she got.”

We additionally see Ben from season 3 within the post-credits scene however is that this a brand new Ben? Blackman mentioned:

“It’s not a different timeline Ben. It’s the Ben we know from Season 3, but how that works and why we’re seeing him will be a Season 4 reveal.”
