Your next enrollment at The Umbrella Academy could happen sooner than you think. Netflix is making superhero fan dreams come true this Monday by announcing that The Umbrella Academy Season 4 is in production. To celebrate the fourth and final season of Netflix’s beloved superhero drama, Netflix released a behind-the-scenes photo of the cast at a table read with showrunner Steve Blackman.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 cast will reprise their roles, including Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. Additional casting news will be announced at a later date.

Steve Blackman will return to close out the series as Executive Producer, along with his team, including Executive Producers Jesse McKeown, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Scott Stuber, and Beau Bauman; and Co-Executive Producers Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.

“I’m so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings’ journey we began five years ago,” Blackman told The Hollywood Reporter in August. “But before we get to that conclusion, we’ve got an amazing story ahead for season four, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes.”

The Umbrella Academy showrunner plans to move on to his following projects, Horizon Zero Dawn and Orbital after the show concludes. These projects will be part of Netflix’s extended partnership with Blackman. 

Horizon Zero Dawn will be based on the Playstation game of the same name and is said to be “an epic sci-fi adventure series set a thousand years in the future, in a strange and beautiful world full of primitive tribes and high-tech machines, all built on the bones of the ‘Old Ones’ – the ruins of our present-day United States. The disaster that destroyed our world is long forgotten, but when these formerly peaceful machines mysteriously turn into dangerous hunters of all life, a young outcast named Aloy discovers that the only chance to save her world is to fight to uncover what happened to ours.”

Meanwhile, Orbital is “a thriller event series set on the International Space Station.” This original series is co-created by writers David and Keith Lynch.

Are you excited about The Umbrella Academy Season 4? How do you think the story of the Hargreeve siblings ends? Will they correct the timeline and save the world from complete and total destruction? I bet they will. However, will they all survive the journey? We’ll find out when The Umbrella Academy Season 4 arrives on Netflix!
