The Umbrella Academy season 3 is currently in production. While we don’t know when the series will be out, COVID guidelines mean shorter days, which means a longer production run for the crew and cast. We know some details of what to expect when the beloved series returns to Netflix: the Sparrow Academy, for example, along with any timeline changes made by the team in the past.
But how different The Umbrella Academy season 3 are compared to the third comic in the series? Um, well, if we go in the order of the released comics? It will be very different, believe it or not, especially if you expected the television series to go in sequence The Umbrella Academy comic series.
The Sparrow Academy
The plot of The Umbrella Academy season 3 doesn’t follow the third book in the series, and that is The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion. Instead, a new comic, book four of it, is in development The Umbrella Academy focused on the storyline of the Sparrow Academy. Sparrows were introduced in book three of it The Umbrella Academy series, but this is clearly a bigger focus.
More interestingly, we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen The Umbrella Academy season 3. According to Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy: Sparrow Academy gets the main plot points for season 3 of the series and also answers the question of what happened to some of the children who were born on the same day as the members of the Umbrella Academy.
Details are kept hidden from both the show and the upcoming comic. So we go in really blind. All we know is that in season three, Reginald Hargreeves (Colm Feore) is alive, but with a new Academy. One of them is the late Umbrella Academy member Ben (Justin H. Min), who is now part of the Sparrow Academy as “a Machiavellian tactician.”
How about Vanya?
What fans are very curious about is how The Umbrella Academy will treat Vanya’s character in light of the fact that Elliot Page comes out as trans and non-binary (he / she uses pronouns). Vanya has identified as a cisgender woman for the best two seasons. While Page continues to play Vanya in The Umbrella Academy season 3, people speculate whether Vanya will have a storyline that reflects Page’s real life.
Considering that many cisgender actors have played trans characters without a hitch, that means the reverse should be able to happen without a hitch. However, since Page is in the early stages of his transition and is living as his true self, there is the mental health aspect of such a decision to take this into account.
Ultimately, Vanya’s storyline boils down to what a) Page is comfortable doing and b) what the creators came up with. Probably the writing team and Page hopefully discussed Vanya’s storyline and probed how comfortable Page is. According to We’ve got this covered, The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will reportedly have a storyline for Vanya that reflects Page’s real-life transition. Now this news came from someone’s Patron page, according to We’ve got this covered, so we won’t know until someone associated with the show or Page himself spills the beans on Vanya’s storyline.
