The Umbrella Academy season 3 on Netflix: critics praise the show’s most emotional season

In 2019, Netflix introduced the world to a new team of superhero siblings who can go back in time and change the course of the world by defeating the forces of evil with their superpowers. The first season of The Umbrella Academy proved to be very popular among young people and became one of the most viewed shows on the streaming platform. Meanwhile, the second season produced better results and was universally acclaimed. So it didn’t come as a shock that Netflix renewed it for season 3 as well.

The third season of the acclaimed Netflix series is just around the corner and it will be interesting to see how the Hargreaves siblings deal with their biggest threat: kugelblitz. The series revolves around superhero siblings who have just returned from 1963 after speculating that they prevented the original apocalypse and set the timeline. However, when they return to the present, they find out that things are not quite the way they left them. In addition, the Umbrella Academy will also be dealing with new applicants and they are called “Sparrow Academy” which is led by Ben Hargreaves (Justin H. Min).

The upcoming season has already made a lot of noise and received positive reviews from critics. Season 3 currently has an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series was praised in every aspect, especially in the performance of Elliot Page. However, reviews suggested that viewers would have to be patient with the series because it takes a while to pick up steam, but when it does, viewers are in for an exciting ride.

Alex Steadman of IGN wrote that if viewers last through the “somewhat slower” opening episodes, they will be rewarded with “Umbrella Academy flavored entertainment”. On the other hand, Danielle Ryan of Slash Film said season 3 has tough decisions to make with some character arcs and keeps viewers on their toes. In his review, he wrote, “After a shaky first season, the show has found its place in its second season, focusing on the chemistry between an all-star cast and leaning towards the weird. Season 3 is a frustrating mix of both, delivering exceptional arcs for some characters and making confusing decisions with others, resulting in an experience akin to eating those gummies: it’s impossible to tell if the next scene will be a piƱa. flavored with colada or vomit.”

Nate Richard of Collider wrote, “Season 3 combines the moodiness of Season 1 with the fast-paced, quirky character and huge heart of Season 2.”

In addition to praising the upcoming season’s emotional depth, Elliott Page’s performance was hailed by critics and called it the best part of the series. Praising his performance, Jenna Scherer of The A.V. Club wrote, “The show deftly crafts Victor’s conversations with each of his family members about his transition, as well as showcasing how he recovers throughout the season. He becomes wiser, more insightful and more confident than the frustratingly weak Vani we met at the beginning of the series.”

On the other hand, Slash Film praised the way the series handled the “transition and life” of a trans man.

The reviews so far have been egregious and, following the trend, it looks like the next round of reviews could be positive as well.

The Umbrella Academy also stars Aidan Gallagher (The Five Hargreaves), Tom Hopper (Luther), David Castaneda (Diego), Emmy Raver-Lampman (Allison), Robert Sheehan (Klaus), and Justin H. Min (Ben Hargreaves).

The Umbrella Academy Season 3 premieres exclusively on Wednesday, June 22nd.
