Steve Blackman, the series creator, had a clear vision for Season 4 from the beginning. “I’ve already sort of worked out the beginning, middle and end of it… I have a really good sense of what season four would be, and it should be just as bonkers as the other seasons,” Blackman told The Hollywood Reporter.

Expectations from the Cast

Elliot Page mentioned that fans can expect “excitement, surprises, humour, twists, turns, and action.” Emmy Raver-Lampman added, “Season 4 is really packed with the classic ‘Umbrella Academy’ family nonsense and shenanigans that you look forward to.” Ritu Arya teased that it’s “the best season yet.”

Fun Facts

  • Klaus, played by Robert Sheehan, can communicate with the dead but prefers not to because, as he says, “Most dead people are assholes.”
  • Elliot Page, who plays Viktor Hargreeves, wears a binder to flatten his chest for the role, reflecting his real-life gender identity.

Comic Book Connection

While the first three seasons of “The Umbrella Academy” followed the comic book series’ first three editions—Apocalypse Suite, Dallas, and Hotel Oblivion—Season 4’s plot will seemingly go beyond the comics. Gerard Way, the comic’s creator, announced that the fourth volume would be titled The Sparrow Academy, introducing a new superhero team assembled by Sir Reginald Hargreeves in an alternate universe.
