The Umbrella Academy Season 3 News, Cast, Release Date, Spoilers



umbrella academy season 2

If you’ve already binged your way through all ten episodes of The Umbrella Academy season 2, you’re not alone. It’s always rough to reach the end of a season of a show you love and realize you’re looking down the barrel of a long hiatus—but a third season has officially been confirmed. Here’s everything we know so far about The Umbrella Academy season 3, including who’s returning and when filming will begin.

When will season 3 of The Umbrella Academy be released?

Netflix officially renewed the show for season 3 on Tuesday, November 10, but no release date has been announced. Renewal wasn’t a huge surprise—the show was reportedly a huge hit for Netflix in 2019, and season 2 drew even more buzz, so it was likely just a matter of time.

It’s not totally shocking that the show will be able to go back into production earlier than many others, because it’s filmed in Canada rather than the U.S. As of June, Hollywood productions are permitted to begin filming in Canada again—although some shows have already run into issues with COVID-19 testing as they prepare to resume production. In any case, the show will start filming its 10-episode season in Toronto next February. Umbrella Academy probably won’t return until late 2021 at the earliest.

What will season 3 be about?

We can only speculate at this point, but here’s a quick refresher on what we do know: After transporting the Hargreeves family to the 1960s, season 2 wrapped up with them time-traveling back into the present day, having succeeded in averting yet another apocalypse circa November 1963. Landing back in 2019 on April 2, the gang realizes with delight that their actions in the past have somehow also prevented the other apocalypse that happened in the final moments of season 1—that one was supposed to take place on April 1, 2019. Yay for killing two apocalypses with one stone!

Their celebration is short lived though, because it turns out that in this version of 2019, several things are off. For one, their father Sir Reginald Hargreeves is alive. So is their brother Ben, aka Number Six, who was supposed to die in 2006. And most unsettlingly of all, Hargreeves already has seven adopted children, whom he calls The Sparrow Academy, and whose faces are kept in shadow except for Ben. In other words, the Umbrella Academy has been replaced.


Will the original cast return?

With news of the show’s renewal, Netflix confirmed that Vanya (Elliot Page), Five (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Diego (David Castañeda), Ben (Justin H. Min) and Luther (Tom Hopper) will all be back for season 3, as will Sir Reginald (Colm Feore), who’s now got two separate sets of adopted children to neglect and torment, and Pogo (Adam Godley). Another returning character is Ritu Arya’s Lila, a compelling new addition to the cast in season 2, who’s revealed to be the Hargreeves’s long-lost sibling—in the sense that she’s another of the 43 super-powered babies who were born under mysterious circumstances in October of 1989. She flees after discovering her true lineage at the end of season 2, and doesn’t travel with the others back into the 21st century. Thankfully, we haven’t seen the last of her.

Who’s new to the cast?

Showrunner Steve Blackman, who returns for season 3, confirmed that the members of the Sparrow Academy won’t simply be doppelgängers of the existing Hargreeves siblings. “They are new people,” he told Inverse. “They’re not our characters. They are different people, and that’s all I can really say.”

On Monday, January 11, 2021, Netflix announced the casting of five new actors and, erm, an “Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube” as the Sparrow Academy. Min will also reprise his role as Ben, who’s known as Number Two within this group, and according to Netflix, “This is not the sweet Ben we know and love. This Ben is a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy body with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant—Ben is determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs.”

Meet the rest of the new Sparrow Academy, according to their Netflix descriptions:

  • Justin Cornwell as Marcus / Sparrow Number One: “A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and demanding, Marcus keeps the family together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong. Marcus is disciplined, rational, and in control. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.”
  • Britne Oldford as Fei / Sparrow Number Three: “Fei sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you. But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done.”
  • Jake Epstein as Alphonso / Sparrow Number Four: “Years of crime-fighting have left his face and body with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of humor. The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.”
  • Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane / Sparrow Number Five: “A romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing. But obligations to her family keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line. But Sloane has plans…and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.”
  • Cazzie David as Jayme / Sparrow Number Six: “Jayme is a loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl. Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows. Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.”
  • Existential Dread Inducing Psykronium Cube / Sparrow Number Seven: “Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator. Trustworthy, loyal, and treated by the Sparrows like any other sibling, Christopher is a force to be reckoned with.”

    How do I pass the time until the show returns?

    If your Umbrella Academy withdrawal symptoms are already setting in, why not check out the graphic novels on which the show is based? Three volumes of the Umbrella Academy series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá have been released so far, and the show has made some significant deviations from the comic canon, so you won’t simply be reliving plot lines you’ve already seen on screen. Given the COVID-19 situation, it’s entirely possible than Volume 4 of the show—which, by the way, is entitled Sparrow Academy—will be released before season 3 of the show makes it to Netflix.

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik Named Baby Girl Khai



gigi hadid's baby name revealed

Gigi Hadid and her boyfriend Zayn Malik opted to wait months before revealing the name of their newborn daughter: Khai. Hadid announced the name subtly tonight in her Instagram bio.


Hadid and Malik announced their daughter’s birth at the end of September. Malik broke the news, posting first on Twitter and his own Instagram. “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful🙏🏽❤️” he wrote. “to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together x”

Hadid posted her own announcement on her Instagram account shortly after, tagging Malik. “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love🥺💕,” Hadid wrote.

Hadid spoke in July about why she initially chose to keep her pregnancy off of social media. She would go on later to share photos from her maternity shoot, along with a couple more candid snaps of her on her family’s farm earlier in her pregnancy.

“Obviously I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more but like, I’m pregnant through a pandemic, like obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world,” she said in July. “That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

“I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it’s been very cute and exciting and I’m trying to document it well because I’ve heard a lot of people say obviously make sure you don’t miss it,” she continued. “And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it, and I feel like right now I just want to experience it.”

How Michelle Obama Nailed Her Inauguration Day Beauty Look, According to Her Makeup Artist



Creamy Concealer

Yesterday ushered in a new era of more humane, decent, and glam politics. Lady Gaga served us Hunger Games District One chic; Emma, daughter of very first second gentlemen of the United States, Doug Emhoff, made all of Brooklyn feel seen in crafty Miu Miu; and the White House coat game is now unparalleled between First Lady Jill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. But one woman, nay icon, nay legend, won the inauguration: Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama.

From the head-to-toe plum and burgundy ensemble by LA-based Sergio Hudson to the bounciest curls in all the land, this was MO’s event (and—oh, yeah—also the swearing-in of President Joe Biden). Her secret? The millennial women triumvirate of Pat McGrath, Glossier, and Fenty freaking Beauty. To see how the beauty look came to be and find out how to potentially recreate it at home, we chatted with the man behind the vision, the former First Lady’s longtime makeup artist, Carl Ray. (You may recognize his work on a certain ELLE cover.) Below, Ray breaks down the steps for achieving your very own MO glam (perhaps for a Zoom meeting), plus the process of creating such an iconic beauty moment.

How long have you been planning the Inauguration makeup look?

I started thinking about the look weeks in advance. I knew she would be wearing a mask and a monochromatic outfit. I wanted her to have a powerful beauty look that would need to be achieved by playing up the top half of her face.

Because of the masks, did you purposefully focus on the eyes?

Yes, absolutely. I knew that since her whole face wouldn’t be visible, the eyes and lashes would be the star of this particular look!

Do you have a name for this glam?

You know, I haven’t really thought about a name for the look, but it was definitely smokin’!

This content is imported from Instagram. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

We chatted with Obama’s hairstylist Yene Damtew and she mentioned you worked closely with the entire style team including Meredith Koop, Christy Rilling, and Damtew. How did you all collaborate on the look?

The entire glam team has been working together for some time. We each have our own creative elements that we bring to the look and all complement each other. We really allow each of our creative outlets to shine to make the former First Lady look and feel her very best.

How long did the final look take?

I don’t generally time how long it takes but allow myself 30 to 1 hour. I can work quickly with her given how long we have worked together.

Do you play music and chat in the beauty chair?

We always have fun in the chair! No music this time – we just laughed and caught up on life. I’m very lucky to be able to call the former First Lady both a mentor and friend.

We are saying Mrs. Obama and her entire glam team “won” the inauguration. Twitter also adored the look. How does it feel?

It’s such an honor. I am humbled to be able to work with such a strong, confident, and iconic woman that is a role model to so many women everywhere. I knew that this was a monumental day for our country but particularly for women. Her entire look really was powerful and I am so glad that people loved it.

Michelle Obama attends a lot of events. What is the right amount of glam for a daytime inauguration?

I knew this particular event was going to be televised not just in the US but across the world, and given his historical occasion particularly for women, her makeup glam needed to stand out for TV, but I still wanted a gentle elegance. I went with a classic smokey eye that I felt was just the right amount of glam for a daytime appearance. Again, inaugurations aren’t your everyday daytime event, so we were able to dial it up a little more than a normal daytime look while still keeping it timeless and classy.

Ray’s step-by-step guide for achieving the Michelle Obama Smokin’ Look™

  • First, he started with foundation (a secret brand that he won’t reveal, yet!) and concealer. Mrs. Obama wore NARS creamy concealer and Fenty Matchstix Contour.
  • Next, he set the former First Lady with Laura Mercier’s translucent powder and the Iconic liquid highlighter.
  • For her brows, Ray used Anastasia Brow’s Dip Brow Gel, Brow Definer, and Clear Brow Gel.
  • Once brows were complete, he started on eyes: “I wanted an impactful smokey eye for the event,” explains Ray. “I was going for a dramatic glam eye that would really play well to the camera.”
  • Ray chose Viseart 01 Eyeshadow Palette neutral matte shades (taupe to black) that “blend and build effortlessly.”
  • For a little pop in the center of the eye, he applied Pat McGrath Divine Mink to the center of the lid.
  • Next, he applied Pat McGrath Labs’ Permagel Eyeliner in Xtreme Black and Fenty Flyliner long-wear liquid eyeliner. The Flyliner, he notes, is a “true inky black that stays put all day and night.” The Fenty liner goes on top of the pencil liner for a more dramatic look on the lash line.
  • Mascara was applied to the top and bottom of the lashes using Glossier Lash Slick.
  • Finally, he applied Lily Lashes for “that final POP,” says Ray. “They add definition to your eyes and enhance them to draw attention to your best features by simply adding length and color to your lashes and again, for TV, we really need to make things a little more dramatic so her eyes shine.”
