Umbrella Academy Season 3 Teases a Major Five Change (And It’s Fantastic)

The Umbrella Academy is getting ready for its third season, and the character posters hint at a huge transformation for Five that will be beneficial to the character.

One of the most popular superhero series of the last several years has been The Umbrella Academy, both on the big screen and on television/streaming. The Umbrella Academy, a comic book series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá that debuted on Netflix in 2019 and has since gone on to become one of the most popular shows on the service.

It’s about the Hargreeves, a family of seven children born on the same day to women who weren’t pregnant at the start of the day, as well as another 36 children from all over the world. Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a scientist and billionaire, set out to adopt as many of these kids as he could, but he only acquired seven.

Reginald trained them and founded The Umbrella Academy, sending them on various missions to battle different villains as they developed their skills. The Hargreeves eventually split up because Reginald wasn’t a good father, and Five (Aidan Gallagher), who has the ability to teleport through space and time, was the first to depart the team.

One day, Five had the idea of going across time, but Reginald swiftly shut him down by informing him he still hasn’t mastered his own talent. For the first 13 years of his life, Five had only used his powers to teleport from place to place.

Frustrated by his father’s lack of respect, Five fled and began traveling across the future, eventually ending up in a post-apocalyptic world where he was unable to return. Five was trapped in the future for four decades until he was rescued by The Commission, and when he returned, he found himself back in his 13-year-old body with the same mind and memories as before.

A dramatic shift in the character development of Five is expected to occur in season 3 of The Umbrella Academy, as Five is the only member of The Umbrella Academy who still wears the team’s uniform because he does not own any other clothing.

The New Poster Shows Five in a New Uniform

For many members of the Umbrella Academy, Reginald was a difficult father figure because of the way he treated them. Despite Reginald’s death, Five has been unable to shake off the burden of being a hero because of Reginald’s treatment.

For more than just a lack of clothes and time to go shopping, wearing the uniform is a sign of the battle he is going through to find himself and become his own person, apart from what Reginald had in mind for him.

When it comes to season three, the new character posters for The Umbrella Academy show five in a new suit instead of the team’s uniform, suggesting at him finally separating from Reginald’s expectations and becoming an individual of his own accord.

The Umbrella Academy season 2 ended with Five using his gift to turn back time in order to save his family.  Five is much more self-assured and no longer feels the need to prove himself to anyone.

Though it’s not clear how this will influence Five’s relationship with his father, the Umbrella crew is back in 2019 in an alternative reality where Reginald is still alive and he built the Sparrow Academy instead of the Umbrella Academy.

In the third season of The Umbrella Academy, Five appears to be on his way to a huge, positive metamorphosis that will benefit him and the rest of the team, as well as the world at large.
