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 Expanse season 6 trailer reveals a universe at war
A glimpse into the future on The Expanse.

After six seasons, The Expanse is ending its run next month on Amazon Prime Video. However, the crew of the Rocinante isn't going down without a fight, and we finally have a season 6 trailer to give us a look at what awaits.

As envisioned by James S. A. Corey (a pen name for collaborators and authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), The Expanse shows viewers a darker side of humanity's expansion into the cosmos. It's not a Star Trek utopia, especially for the humans living in the asteroid belt without a planet to call their own. The Belters have been exploited for generations by their fellow humans on Earth and Mars. Now, the terrorist Marco Inaros has united the Belt behind him and unleashed a devastating war on the universe.
