While Netflix may have a bad habit of cancelling some of its promising originals after just a couple of seasons, the streamer knows when it has a hit on its hands. Like Stranger Things and The Witcher, The Umbrella Academy was a bit of an instant hit at Netflix, and fans of the live-action adaptation are getting rewarded with another season in the near future. On Tuesday, Netflix officially announced that The Umbrella Academy would be returning for Season 3.
This renewal news isn’t exactly surprising, given just how popular the second season of The Umbrella Academy was when it was released back in July. The series was a staple of the Netflix Top 10 for quite some time, and found itself as one of the most popular shows of the summer according to the Nielsen streaming ratings.
The announcement was first made by Netflix on Twitter. A graphic of the number three with an umbrella was posted to the NX on Netflix Twitter account, along with a tease of what’s in store for Season 3.
“With time travel, you never know where you’ll end up,” reads the tweet. “Season Three of The Umbrella Academy is on the way!”
