Right now, there are two seasons of The Umbrella Academy available on Netflix. The third season is currently in production. Season 1 premiered in February 2019 followed by the second season, which arrived on Netflix on July 31, 2020.
Has Netflix renewed The Umbrella Academy for season 3?
With a cliffhanger ending to the second season, it came as no surprise when Netflix officially renewed the show in November 2020. In fact, we knew for some time prior to the release of the second season that The Umbrella Academy would return back with its third season.

Has the filming for season 3 started?
In a recent interview with Collider, lead star Tom Hopper revealed how due to new protocols put in place due to COVID-19, shooting The Umbrella Academy’s third season’s just taking longer overall. COVID protocols mean that the filming days are shorter. This makes the length of the actual shoot much longer.
The latest we hear is that the filming started on Feb 8, 2021. With no disruptions, it is expected to wrap up on Aug 17, 2021.
The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date
The filming for season 3 is in progress in California. With still a big chunk left to be filmed, it seems that we have to wait a long for The Umbrella Academy season 3 to arrive on Netflix. The streaming isn’t going to set a date until filming is complete.
With the COVID situation not getting better, there’s no idea if production shutdowns and further delays will happen. Our best bet for The Umbrella Academy season 3 release date would be the second quarter of 2022.
With around a year left for the release of season 3, you can always watch season 1 and 2 on Netflix.
