What happened at the end of season 2 of The Umbrella Academy?

At the end of season two, the family returned from 1960s Dallas to discover a brand new world.

After messing with the timeline, their world no longer exists – and in their place stands The Sparrow Academy, seven new superheroes taken in by their cruel-hearted adopted father.

Season 3 will see the Hargreeves face off against a phenomenon known as the Kugleblitz, a dark force that begins to destroy things in the universe by dragging them into a black hole.

The Umbrella Academy executive producer and director Jeff F. King said: “The kugelblitz is our biggest danger.

“I think the show’s biggest foe this season is when our characters don’t trust their siblings, don’t communicate with them, and when they’re not upfront and honest with people – maybe for the best of intentions.”

Tom Hopper, who plays Luther, old PureWow that season 3 would be “bigger” than its predecessor.

“This season is really taking it up a notch. If anyone has seen the end of season two, they can probably guess where things are going, and that’s a very exciting dynamic that happens in the third season,” said the star.

How many episodes are there in season 3?

There are 10 episodes in the brand new series.

They are titled:

  • Meet The Family
  • World’s Biggest Ball Of Twine
  • Pocket Full Of Lightning
  • Kugelblitz
  • Kindest Cut
  • Marigold
  • Auf Wiedersehen
  • Wedding At the End Of The World
  • Oblivion

The finale’s name doesn’t sound very promising, does it? We’re nervous now!
