According to the official synopsis for season 3 shared by Netflix, after stopping 1963’s doomsday, The Umbrella Academy returns home to the present, convinced they’ve prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this long-forgotten timeline. God once and for all.
But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t quite (okay, not quite) the way they left them. Enter Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish and as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrella in a violent showdown that turns out to be the least of everyone’s worries.
Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc on the Universe (something they may have caused) – now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and arguably better family to to help them fix what their arrival did wrong,” the synopsis description continues. Will they find a way to return to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?”
