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 Sparrows land in The Umbrella Academy season 3 teaser

Just when the former kid superheroes of the Umbrella Academy thought they had won, they got a very unwelcome surprise. Somehow, their adventure in 1963 has radically changed the present. This summer, Netflix's The Umbrella Academy season 3 will explore an altered timeline in which a new rival school called The Sparrow Academy rose to prominence. And in this world, Sir Reginald Hargreeves, the man who adopted and raised the superhuman family, had another batch of orphans to call his own.

Netflix has released a new teaser for The Umbrella Academy season 3, which features the best look yet at the Sparrows as they face off with our established heroes. Justin Cornwell portrays Marcus Hargreeves, with Britne Oldford as Fei Hargreeves, Jake Epstein as Alphonso Hargreeves, Genesis Rodriguez as Sloane Hargreeves, and Cazzie David as Jayme Hargreeves. But the biggest kick in the teeth for the original heroes is that their late and lamented sibling, Ben Hargreeves (Justin H. Min), is back from the dead and a member of the Sparrows.

During the first two seasons of Amazon Prime Video's The Boys, William "Billy" Butcher has been severely outmatched by his nemesis, Homelander. But in the first teaser trailer for The Boys season 3, it looks like Billy is changing the equation. The previous seasons have established that Compound V can give regular people superhuman powers. If the new footage is any indication, Butcher has finally used Compound V to become superhuman himself. And he's putting the hurt on Homelander. Unfortunately for Butcher, that power doesn't come without a price.
