New Umbrella Academy Trailer Reveals One Last Plan to End the Last Apocalypse

“So it’s the end of the world again, huh?” These are words that could be uttered by anyone. Umbrella Academy fan to describe any season of the show—or any member of the Hargreeves family, whose timeline is convoluted and often superpowered. But this time around, the series is even more poignant and urgent, because it’s based on the Dark Horse comics by Gerard Way (whose band, My Chemical Romance, provides the perfect melody for this farewell trailer) and Gabriel Bá comes to an end.

This new sneak peek at the upcoming final season teases all the shenanigans we’ve come to expect and love from The Umbrella Academyas well as a tiny bit more plot detail, namely that “Tentacle Boy” (Justin H. Min’s Ben Hargreeves), as Nick Offerman’s new Season 4 character explains, will play a significant role in the potential impending apocalypse. Ben’s history and the alternate timeline’s history have already come into play in previous seasons, so it will certainly be interesting to see how his future could alter Ben’s history as well. Umbrella the world as we know it.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 of the series was created for television and is directed by Steve Blackman. Netflix’s official description for season 4 reads: “The Hargreeves siblings have scattered after the climactic showdown at Hotel Oblivion leads to a complete reset of their timelines. Stripped of their powers, each is left to find a new normal, with varying degrees of success. Yet the pitfalls of their strange new world prove too difficult to ignore for long. Their father Reginald, alive and well, has emerged from the shadows and is in the public eye, overseeing a powerful and nefarious business empire. A mysterious association known as the Keepers is holding clandestine meetings, convinced that the reality they live in is a lie and that a great reckoning is coming.” As these strange new forces conspire around them, the Umbrella Academy must come together one last time—and risk disrupting the uneasy peace they’ve all worked so hard to achieve—to finally set things right.

Normal? This family? Never! Netflix also revealed a series of new photos and trailer images from season 4, showing the cast that includes Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya and Colm Feore, as well as newcomers Offerman, Megan Mullally and David Cross.
