Highlights:

The End.

“Now, come one, come all, to this tragic affair. Wipe off that makeup; what’s in is despair…”

Listen, my MCR-loving heart was quite content to hear “The End.” as the song for The Umbrella Academy final season trailer. It’s incredibly fitting. 

Anyway, Netflix unveiled the official trailer for Season 4, and folks, we’ve got another apocalypse on our hands. In it, we see Viktor (Elliot Page) informing Ben (Justin H. Min) that the world will end in 48 hours. Reginald (Colm Feore) corrects him, stating it’s 24 hours. Nick Offerman’s character adds that Ben is the key to understanding all the timelines.

The Umbrella Academy Season 4 Synopsis

Here’s a synopsis for the final season per Netflix: 

“The Hargreeves siblings have scattered after the climactic showdown at the Hotel Oblivion led to a complete reset of their timeline. Stripped of their powers, each is left to fend for themselves and find a new normal — with wildly varying degrees of success. Yet the trappings of their uncanny new world prove too hard to ignore for very long. Their father, Reginald, alive and well, has stepped out of the shadows and into the public eye, overseeing a powerful and nefarious business empire.

A mysterious association known as The Keepers holds clandestine meetings, believing the reality they’re living in is a lie and a great reckoning is coming. As these strange new forces conspire around them, the Umbrella Academy must come together one last time — and risk upsetting the shaky peace they’ve all endured so much to secure — to finally set things right.”

The trailer is chock full of high-octane sequences, family chaos, action, a Santa with firearms and the Hargreeves’ impressive powers on display. I’m simultaneously ready for what’s next but fearful of saying goodbye. This series is near and dear to my misfit heart.
