‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 4 Gets a Release Date

All good things must come to an end… but not just yet! Netflix has announced the August 8 streaming debut of the popular series' final season, noting the return of cast members Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. 

Life is bittersweet. Sometimes made cumbersome by Sparrows… But, sometimes, streamer programming news goes down like a warm, gooey, wonderfully greasy grilled cheese.

Like today. Netflix has shared the release date and key art for the fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy, giving fans one last hurrah (and season) and tasty content morsel of the hugely popular series. The announcement made today comes exactly five years after the series' February 15, 2019 debut. Mark your calendars for August 8, the Season 4 streaming premiere. And get your Gruyere, Tillamook cheddar, or melty milky analog ready.

The Umbrella Academy, based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics, is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, for Netflix.

“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,” shared showrunner/executive producer Steve Blackman after the announcement of the Season 4 renewal. “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."

The series stars Elliot Page; Tom Hopper; David Castañeda; Emmy Raver-Lampman; Robert Sheehan; Aidan Gallagher; Justin H. Min; Ritu Arya; Colm Feore; Nick Offerman; Megan Mullally; and David Cross.

Blackman is showrunner, creator, and executive producer, with Jennifer Cecil; Mike Richardson; Keith Goldberg; Scott Stuber; Beau Bauman; Pascal Verschooris; Jesse McKeown; Abbey Morris; and Jeremy Webb serving as executive producers. Way and Bá are co-executive producers.

Umbrella Academy Season 3 VFX were produced by Company 3 VFX; Digital Film Tree; Exceptional Minds; FOLKS VFX; MARZ; Pixomondo; Spin VFX; Studio 8; and Wētā FX. We can’t wait to find out who worked their VFX magic for the new season and how they did it!
