Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy has been renewed for a fourth season, which will also serve as its last. The show’s cast returning to their roles for the fourth and final season will include Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore.

According to THR, series showrunner Steve Blackman addressed, “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. 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 next projects, Horizon Zero Dawn and Orbital, after the show concludes. These next projects will be part of Netflix’s continued partnership with Blackman, which recently had been extended. 

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, his other series planned, Orbital, is described as “a thriller event series set on the International Space Station.” This original series is co-created by writers David and Keith Lynch (not to be confused with director David Lynch, whose full name happens to be David Keith Lynch). 

Blackman adds, “Horizon Zero Dawn and Orbital are elevated, event-level projects grounded in characters that fans will love and relate to, which are hallmarks of Irish Cowboy productions. We’re thrilled to be working with Netflix and all of our partners on developing these ground-breaking stories.”
