One of the most popular series on Netflix is about to land with its third season. This time, The Umbrella Academy will not be the only group with interesting and powerful members, but will compete with The Sparrow Academy, but who are they? We tell you here!
Netflix It’s been a pretty busy month. After the premiere of Stranger Things 4, the last season of Peaky Blinders and the Geek WeekCome back The Umbrella Academy. After two years of waiting, this quite particular group/family, each with their respective characteristics and powers, returns to the platform of streaming with its season 3.
After two seasons trying to save the world, Luther, Allison, Five, Diego, Klaus Y Victor Hargreeves (who used to be Vanya) believed that they would have a few days of rest or peace once they arrived in the present (remember that in previous episodes they had accidentally traveled to 1963). However, their time in the past seems to have significantly affected the future, as they arrive in 2019 from another timeline where no one exists. Umbrella Academybut one Sparrow Academy.
The last chapter of the second season shows us how the members of Umbrella Academy they return home convinced that they prevented the apocalypse and repaired the timeline. But actually they meet the Sparrow Academywhich has as a member his brother Ben and his adoptive father Reginald Hargreeves, who had committed suicide in Season 1.
Apparently in this new timeline Reginald Hargreeve is still alive and found a new group of kids with powers to turn him into a superhero team, this time called Sparrow Academy.
According to the official synopsis for the third season, The Umbrella Academy will have to facethe challenges, losses and surprises alone as they face an unidentified destructive entity causing chaos in the Universe. All they have to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them right everything his arrival did. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a timeline hiccup?
It seems that the members of The Umbrella Academy they will have enough competition with those of the Sparrow Academy, since these also have great abilities. However, that will not be the biggest of their problems because they will have to ask for help to return to their normal lives.
Meet the members of the Sparrow Academy
The Sparrow Academy is made up of members of the unlikely group of 43 children who were born on the same day in 1989, just like The Umbrella Academy. Their names are: Marcus, Ben, Fei, Alphonso, Sloane, Jayme Y Christopher.
-Marcus (Justin Cornwell), also known as Number 1 Sparrow, is the leader of the group. He apparently will compete with Lutheras he has superhuman strength. Netflix described it as “graceful yet deadly, calculating yet compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong”.
-Ben (Justin H.Min), Sparrow Number 2. East Ben alternative does not look anything like the one known by those of Umbrella Academy, as he is described as the schemer of the group, “a Machiavellian strategist, wrapped in a pretty boy’s body with a noisy squid inside“. It is “ruthless, pragmatic and hyper-vigilant” and wants to become the new leader of the Sparrow.
-Fei (Britne Oldford)Sparrow Number 3. The one with the sharp eyes, “sees the world in a special way” Y “She sounds like a misanthropist who would rather be alone than spend a second with you.“. She is one of the most sensible and intelligent people in the family and, from what we saw in the trailer, her powers seem to be based on summoning ravens that help her fight.
-Alphonso (Jake Epstein)), Sparrow Number 4. His face and body are marked with “countless visual reminders of your battles“. He is the prankster of the group and, as far as we know, his main ability is to use his body as if it were a voodoo doll, which means that all damage that is caused or done to him is also dealt to him. to his enemies.
-Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez)Sparrow Number 5. She defies gravity and is described as “a romantic and dreamer. She feels a higher cosmic calling that leaves her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing.”.
-Jayme (Cazzie David)Sparrow Number 6. The naysayer of the bunch, “a loner hiding under a hoodie“. We don’t know much about his powers, but in some way or another they are related to speech, since it seems that he can spit some kind of substance at his enemies.
-Christopher, Sparrow Number 7, is without a doubt the rarest character, as he is “a telekinetic cube of unknown origin”according to Netflix. “It can freeze the room and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrow’s consulted oracle giving incredible advice and acting as a family mediator.”
Based on the comics of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy is a superhero time travel series full of twists. The most important of all was the one we saw at the end of the second season, when the brothers inadvertently create a time paradox. This paradox is absorbing things and our protagonists have a few days to save (again) their lives.
The third season will pick up directly from the last episode we saw and apparently we will know the Obsidian Hotel. In the comics, it’s called Hotel Oblivions and serves as an interdimensional prison, one he built Reginald Hargreeve for criminals caught by The Umbrella Academy. We do not know if the series simply changed the name or if it is another type of hotel.
In the third installment we will see again in their respective characters: Elliot Page, Aidan Gallagher, Robert Sheehan, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Justin H. Min, Tom Hopper, Colm Feore Y Ritu Arya. Also, thanks to the trailer, we know he’s coming back. Pogo (Adam Godley) the advanced chimpanzee, assistant and friend of The Umbrella Academy. The main cast will be joined by members of the Sparrow Academy: Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez Y Cazzie David.
The ten episodes of the third season of The Umbrella Academy they arrive at Netflix on June 22.
