As of now, Netflix isn’t sharing any details about Walton’s Umbrella Academy character. However, we can most likely rule him out a member of the Sparrow Academy, whose introduction was teased at the end of season 2 and whose members were all cast last year. Other new additions to the show include Justin Cornwell, Britne Oldford, Jake Epstein, Genesis Rodriguez, and Cazzie David. Earlier this year, Netflix continued to tease the Sparrows’ arrival with a new series of character posters.
Netflix still hasn’t announced a premiere date for The Umbrella Academy season 3.
