The upcoming installment will consist of ten episodes. The main story of the show is based on the Hargreeves family. They are Vanya, Luther, Diego, Klaus, Allison, Five, and Ben Hargreeves.
After the death of Reginald Hargreeves, the six children return to their home, the billionaire who adopted them. One of them, named Five, comes back from his time travel. And he warns the others that they have to prevent the end of the world. And that they must take this big responsibility.
In the first two seasons, the Hargreeves went in the 1960s and fought Swedish assassins and the Commission. Unfortunately, when they return to their own timeline, the Umbrella Academy gets replaced by the new Sparrow Academy.

Currently, there are many great TV shows and movies streaming on the platform right now. But the big surprise is yet to come in the form of Stranger Things season 4. The anticipated next installment of the highly popular series is yet to get a release date.
However, several teasers have kept the hype going, and fans are very keen to know what actually happened to Jim Hopper. Not to mention that they also want to see characters like Eleven, Mike, Dustin, and Steve, back on the screen.
Interestingly, season three of Stranger Things made Steve a more relatable character that wasn’t the case till the end of the second part. Plus, it was also due to the introduction of Maya Hawke’s Robin. She also became quite popular among the viewers last year.
Coming back to the present shows on Netflix, the first and second seasons of The Umbrella Academy are streaming on it. Before the next part arrives, viewers can refresh their memories of what transpired in the last two installments. That will be crucial while going into the third season.
