According to the Hollywood Reporter, the renewal was given as the show was rumored to have scored a two-year renewal following its strong debut back in February of 2019.
Some sources claim that about 45 million member households worldwide watched at least 70% of one episode of the freshman season, and the second season proved just as successful.
The Umbrella Academy is based on Eisner's award-winning comics and graphic novels created by Gerard Way. The show follows Five, Luther, Allison, Vanya, Klaus, Diego.
Hazel actor Cameron Britton, talking with PopCulture, said,
"If we're lucky enough to get a Season 3, I know what it is. I already have a plan for it in my mind. I know the beginning, middle, and end of Season 3. I know it’s going to be a very challenging season for them."
The actor added,
"Clearly, the Umbrella Academy is no more, and their brother, who should be deceased, is standing right in front of them. So, I think there are going to be some changes. And Hargreeves, who should be dead, is alive. I don't want to give anything away, but it will obviously be a fun and tragic season for them to understand what’s happening and how it came to be."
