Umbrella Academy is finally back, and the season three trailer offers a look at an alternate academy, and the return of a fan-favorite character.
The new excitable and rocking trailer for Umbrella Academy Season 3 is finally here. The trailer brings a whole new host of issues for the ragtag group of superpowered misfits. Mainly, the academy that we all know has traveled to an alternate dimension where the Umbrella Academy is known as the Sparrow Academy. Each of the students there possesses powers of their own, and the trailer shows plenty of times in which both academies are at each other’s throats. Considering they are in an alternate reality, that means there are alternate versions of all the characters, including a huge fan-favorite hero returning. You can see the huge reveal below:
For those who stayed until the end of the trailer, you notice there is an alternate version of arguably the biggest fan-favorite hero in the Umbrella Academy series, Pogo! That’s right, the hyper-intelligent ape that won everyone’s hearts in the first season of the series is back. However, he seems to be a bit dressed differently this time around. The normal pogo looked to be a bit older, and a dapper gentleman. He always worse suits and spoke with poise and articulation to the members of the group. However, he seems to be wearing a biker’s vest and is covered in a ton of tattoos in the quick shot of him in the trailer. Five, always understanding every situation, enters a room to find the new Pogo. He says, “I’ve been looking for you.”
Umbrella Academy Season 3 follows suit with a multiverse, which seems the subject matter for practically every single superhero show or film happening right now. Only there is something odder happening in this alternate reality. Five describes this as the “kugelblitz.” A name that refers to a sort of timeline paradox that might swallow everyone up if it is not corrected. The perfect song, “Ballroom Blitz,” plays in the background as chaos erupts for both groups of superhero students. Honestly, we are just waiting to hear what this new grizzled-looking version of Pogo sounds like.
Umbrella Academy sees the return of Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, and Colm Feore. The newcomers that have been added to the series as the Sparrow Academy are Justin Cornwell (Marcus), Britne Oldford (Fei), Jake Epstein (Alphonso), Genesis Rodriguez (Sloane), and Cazzie David (Jayme). There has not been any mention of Adam Godley returning as the voice of Pogo. However, it would be great if that was him returning to voice this new tatted version of the character.
Umbrella Academy Season 3 will officially debut on June 22nd. The entire gang is back to take on their supposed better selves in this new Sparrow Academy. They will have to figure out why they were transported to this new timeline, and how they fix this “kugelblitz.” If nothing is done, then the world will certainly end, which seems to be the motif that the academy must deal with on a regular basis. We are just happy that Pogo is back in some small way.
