Season 3 'The Umbrella Academy' review: Hargreaves siblings clash against Sparrow Academy

The Umbrella Academy is back, reuniting us with the superpowered Hargreeves siblings and their super-sized daddy issues. 

Season 2 may have ended with our heroes preventing the apocalypse and time traveling back to the present, but that supposed victory had dire consequences.  

The Hargreeves' time travel shenanigans created a different timeline, one where the Umbrella Academy has been replaced by the ruthless 

Sparrow Academy. They've also triggered a chain of events that threatens to bring about the apocalypse, so it's up to them to once again save the world. 

Since this is now The Umbrella Academy's third installment, the "we only have x 

amount of time to stop the apocalypse" formula risks feeling a little overdone. Lucky 

for us, Season 3 avoids that pitfall (for the most part), keeping the Hargreeves' 

adventures feeling fresh with powerful new character developments and a fun set of villains to face off against.
