The third season of The Umbrella Academy, one of the most successful Netflix series, just premiered a few days ago on the streamer and already fans hunger for more of the Elliot Page-starring hit series.
There is already some speculation and anxiety on whether Netflix will renew the series, and today Redanian Intelligence has some news regarding that.
Writing has begun for The Umbrella Academy Season 4
Sources tell us that the writing team for of The Umbrella Academy is already hard at work on the next batch of episodes of the hit superhero series.
Netflix hasn’t made an official announcement of its renewal yet, but since the writers have begun their work, it means that the streamer is confident in the series and the official renewal will become public soon enough.
When may Season 4 be released?
As it’s just in the writing stages, The Umbrella Academy Season 4 is still in early development. Nevertheless, when filming dates become available in the coming months, we’ll have a more or less clear timeline of the production. Still even in that case it would be hard to tell.
For instance, Season 3 was filmed between February and August 2021 and was only released in July 2022. If Season 4 manages to get underway by late 2022 or early 2023, perhaps Season 4 could arrive in the first half of 2024.
Of course, we will have to wait and see.
Will Season 4 be the final season?
Neither Netflix, nor showrunner Steve Blackman made any concrete and definitive statements on that, but Blackman did comment that he had only four seasons in mind in an interview with TVline:
“I don’t know how many seasons [Netflix] wants to go. I pitched them Season 4, and I know the beginning, middle and end [of it]. When I started the show, I really only knew the first four seasons in my mind.”
He continued that Gerard Way, the author of the original comics “wants to do stuff for another decade, and he’s going to do volumes and volumes.”
Nevertheless, Blackman knows where he wants to end the series. “I have what I think is an end to the TV show. Netflix may want more than that, but I have a sweet thought of where I think the show should end and where we’re going.”
It’s possible that with the official announcement of Season 4, Netflix may also announce that it would conclude the series as per Blackman’s original plan.
Season 4 of The Umbrella Academy sounds like a long wait, but since Season 3 is only newly released and there’s two more seasons to rewatch, it all can be a little more bearable.
