The Umbrella Academy season 3 trailer twists the timeline

During the second season of The Umbrella Academy, the Hargreeves family was stuck in the past as they tried to avert an apocalypse. They succeeded, but that success had a big price. Upon their return to the present, the Hargreeves clan discovered that they no longer belonged to the new timeline. The Umbrella Academy itself no longer exists, because Sir Reginald Hargreeves adopted an almost entirely different family of superheroes: The Sparrows.

In the new trailer for The Umbrella Academy season 3, Sir Reginald is still alive, but he has no idea who the original Hargreeves siblings are. And the Sparrows don’t exactly hold back on their cross-temporal siblings. A superhero fight was always inevitable, but it doesn’t solve the key problem. The new timeline is violently unstable, and it will collapse in just a few days.

Here’s the synopsis for the new season courtesy of Netflix:

“After putting a stop to 1963’s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy return home to the present, convinced they prevented the initial apocalypse and fixed this godforsaken timeline once and for all. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly (okay, not at all) how they left them. Enter the Sparrow Academy. Smart, stylish, and about as warm as a sea of icebergs, the Sparrows immediately clash with the Umbrellas in a violent face-off that turns out to be the least of everyone’s concerns.”

The Umbrella Academy season 3 review: A beautiful apocalypse
The cast of The Umbrella Academy stands together in the main room of the family mansion.

Not every show can get weirder with each consecutive season and still retain everything that makes it wonderful. Netflix series The Umbrella Academy is one such show, and it proves it with a fantastic third season that raises its already high bar for strange-but-satisfying storytelling.

Created by Steve Blackman and based on the comic book series of the same name by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy chronicles the adventures of a dysfunctional family of adopted siblings with superhuman abilities. Following their time-twisting adventures in the show's second season, the third season of The Umbrella Academy has the family returning to the present, only to discover that their actions in the past dramatically changed the world they left behind.

Emmy Raver-Lampman on Umbrella Academy and her new film Gatlopp
Cliff, Troy, Sam , and Paul stand in a line and look from a scene in Gatlopp.

A night of drinking between old friends typically leads to some laughs, a few cries, and a lot of hijinks. Add in a board game with supernatural stakes and you have the premise for Gatlopp. In this horror-comedy, friends Sam (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Troy (Sarunas J. Jackson), and Cliff (Jon Bass) decide to cheer up their newly divorced buddy, Paul (Jim Mahoney), with lots and lots of alcohol. When they play the drinking game Gatlopp, they soon discover the game has life or death consequences and if the group can't finish before sunrise, they will be forced to play for the rest of eternity in hell.

Directed by Alberto Belli and written by Mahoney, Gatlopp combines the board game madness of Jumanji with the partylike atmosphere of Dazed and Confused to create a fun, one-night adventure. In speaking with Digital Trends, Raver-Lampman discussed her love of the script, the magnetic chemistry she had with the cast, why she embraces the challenges presented in acting, and what to expect for the future of her hit Netflix show, The Umbrella Academy.

Stranger Things 4 Volume 2 teaser hints at the last showdown
The main villain of Stranger Things 4.

Without giving too much away for fans who haven't already made their way through the first part of Stranger Things 4, there's a showdown coming for the fate of the world. Humanity's future depends on Eleven as she takes on the malevolent Vecna. But in the new teaser trailer for Stranger Things 4, Volume 2, Vecna taunts Eleven by saying, "It is over, Eleven. You have freed me. You can't stop this now."

If that wasn't ominous enough, it looks like some of our favorite teens are directly in the line of fire from Vecna. Meanwhile, Jim Hopper has uncovered some disturbing things in Russia. It looks like demogorgons have been put on display. But messing with the Upside Down is a very bad idea. It always comes back to bite you in the end.
