Netflix’s hit series “The Umbrella Academy” returns this year with a new ten-episode season. Ahead of its premiere, Netflix has revealed details surrounding the new characters we’ll meet in season three, from the Sparrow Academy.


The series, based on Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá’s graphic novels, ended its second season on a major cliffhanger in the finale, titled “The End of Something.”  This time the Hargraves didn’t cause an apocalypse, they prevented one, but after another time-traveling debacle,  the Hargraves think they’ve returned to the present day without any problems, but upon entering their home they find their father alive and are told to leave, that it’s not the home of The Umbrella Academy, it’s the home of The Sparrow Academy.


So who are the new characters from The Sparrow Academy?


Justin Cornwell (I Am the Night) plays Marcus, Sparrow #1, who is described as “honest, virtuous, and demanding” and oozing “confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.” Justin H Min plays Sparrow #2, a “Machiavellian tactician” who is “determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs”. Sparrow #3, Fei, played by Brintne Oldford, “is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done.” Sparrow #4, Alphonso is “better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face,” and loves nothing better than “a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.”  Sparrow #5, Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez) is described as “a romantic who feels a higher cosmic calling.” Sparrow #6, Jayme (Cazzie David) is a loner while Sparrow #7, Christopher,  is “a telekinetic cube of unknown origin.”



Vanya (Elliot Page), Luther (Tom Hooper), Five (Aidan Gallagher), Klaus (Robert Sheehan), Allison (Emmy Raver-Lampman), and Diego (David Castaneda), will all be returning for Season 3 as well as Sir Reginald (Colm Feore) and Lila (Ritu Arya).


Netflix has yet to announce the premiere date for season 3 of “The Umbrella Academy” but they have stated that we will see it in 2022.


Netflix has taken to social media to share character posters for the members of The Sparrow Academy. To view them all head over to the official Twitter page for The Sparrow Academy.
