The Umbrella Academy Season 3 Trailer Crudely Takes on Paradoxes

We’ve had date announcements, lots of posters, interview teases, and a long, steady flow of tiny drips and drabs. Today, Netflix finally delivers The Umbrella Academy Season 3 trailer. And it’s full of dickheads. Not just figuratively, in that those alternate-reality Hargreeves kids known as the Sparrows seem mightily unpleasant. But also literally. As in, the characters just can’t stop saying the word “dickhead.”

It looks like we’ll also see Vanya/Viktor’s transition happen as part of the storyline, as we see scenes of Elliot Page’s character presenting both female and male. As recently hinted, Ben’s tentacle powers get a boost in the new alternate reality. And Pogo the chimp appears to have taken a turn in a different direction.

Take a look in the player below. It’s a real Ballroom Blitz:

The official synopsis for season 3 reads as follows:

“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.”

“Navigating challenges, losses, and surprises of their own – and dealing with an unidentified destructive entity wreaking havoc in the Universe (something they may have caused) — now all they need to do is convince Dad’s new and possibly better family to help them put right what their arrival made wrong. Will they find a way back to their pre-apocalyptic lives? Or is this new world about to reveal more than just a hiccup in the timeline?”

The Umbrella Academy season 3 debuts June 22 on Netflix. What do you think of the trailer? Tell us your thoughts in comments.
