The fourth and final season of The Umbrella Academy will reportedly have only six episodes as opposed to the ten episodes in the previous season. The news is confirmed by the series showrunner and executive producer Steve Blackman. He had recently shared the cover page of the final season’s finished script on his Instagram page.
The image was shared with a caption that reads, “And so it begins… one last time.”
The Netflix original series, which started premiering in 2019, follows a group of foster siblings who deal with the aftermath of fighting crime at a young age. The series also deals with the repercussions of time travel. The last season ended with the siblings losing their powers and trying to live as normal people.
According to Blackman’s Instagram post, the title of the first episode of season 4’s first episode will be The Unbearable Tragedy of Getting What You Want. The ensemble cast of the series includes Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver, Robert Sheehan, Justin H Min, Colm Feore, and Ritu Arya. Although The Umbrella Academy is confirmed to come back next year, Netflix is yet to confirm a release date.
