Netflix has renewed hit series “The Umbrella Academy” for the fourth season, which will also be the final one.
The creator, executive producer, and showrunner of the series, Steve Blackman, expressed his excitement for the opportunity for the devoted viewers of “The Umbrella Academy” to witness the fitting conclusion to the Hargreeves siblings’ journey that began five years ago.
With intentions to collaborate on several new projects, Netflix has also revealed its overall agreement with Blackman and his recently established Irish Cowboy production label. A series adaptation of the PlayStation game “Horizon Zero Dawn” and the original series “Orbital” are the two that are now in production. Below is further information on those initiatives. In addition, Abbey Morris has joined Irish Cowboy as Blackman’s senior vice president of development. Morris had previously worked for Fabrik Entertainment as an executive.
Netflix did not address season 4’s episode count; however, many reports claim that it will be less than the previous 10-episode seasons of the show. The third season of “The Umbrella Academy” debuted on Netflix in June. Seasons two and one will follow in 2020 and 2019, respectively. The program is based on the same named graphic novel by Gabriel Bá and Gerard Way. It centers on an adopted family of superpowered siblings who is attempting to avert the end of the planet.
For Season 4, the cast will be joined by returning actors Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castaeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore. In addition, Jesse McKeown will work as executive producer and co-showrunner alongside Blackman, who will continue to act as the show’s creator. In addition to Way and Bá, the show’s executive producers include Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Scott Stuber, and Beau Bauman. The studio is UCP.
According to Blackman, Irish Cowboy creations such as “Horizon Zero Dawn” and “Orbital” are elevated, event-level works built around characters that fans would adore and identify with.
