The Umbrella Academy Season 3 followed the time travel heist in Avengers: Endgame as the heroic figures battle to restore their timeline. In the earlier season. Netflix’s adaptation of The Umbrella Academy ended not with an apocalypse but certainly with a world-ending revelation for the Academy’s six surviving members.
What happened to The Umbrella Academy?
They jump back to 2019 in the wake of JFK’s assassination only to find that after meeting them in the past, Sir Reginald Hargreeves never started the Umbrella Academy, instead of turning his superpowered adoptive children into The Sparrow Academy.
The Umbrella Academy cease to exist since they would never have been trained by Hargreeves and would never have ended up in the past, but this continuum without a doubt works differently which means that the Academy will be able to jump into the past from 2019 to potentially change the events that led to the alternate future they arrived in at the end of season 2.
Almost everything that was out there to know about their lives has been snapped away by the foundation of a completely new timeline delineated by the existence of The Sparrow Academy.
Is The Umbrella Academy playing bad in the third season?
Jumping Back through time theory of the show
They cannot just turn back the events of 1963, because Five needs to meet Old Five on the Grassy Knoll to send him back to 2019 through the portal to protect his future schedule of time.
So the perfect time jump has to come after that and involve the Academy bid to convince Hargreeves that they need to exist in place of the Sparrow Academy as well as trying to fix his relationship with Grace so she can go on to be their mother. If there is not an Enchantment below the sea dance, Easter egg in there, the opportunity shouldn’t be missed.
