The Umbrella Academy Renewed for Fourth and Final Season at Netflix
Netflix has renewed “The Umbrella Academy” for a fourth and final season, the streamer said on Thursday. Writer, showrunner, director, and executive producer Steve Blackman isn’t going anywhere: he’ll write and produce new series and other projects at Netflix under his newly established Irish Cowboy production banner, the company said, and is currently developing “Horizon Zero Dawn” and “Orbital.”
“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 said in a statement shared with media on Thursday. “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.”
“‘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,” Blackman continued. “We’re thrilled to be working with Netflix and all of our partners on developing these ground-breaking stories.”
Reprising their roles for “The Umbrella Academy” Season 4 are Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. More casting news will come at a later date, Netflix said.
“The Umbrella Academy” is a UCP production. In addition to Blackman, Jesse McKeown, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Scott Stuber, and Beau Bauman also executive produce “The Umbrella Academy” Season 4; McKeown will co-showrun with Blackman. Co-executive producers are Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.
