The Umbrella Academy season 4
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and in 2024, we will be saying farewell to The Umbrella Academy with the premiere of its fourth and final season. The fan-favorite series, which first premiered on Netflix in February 2019, last dropped new episodes in June 2022 and was renewed for one last season in August of the same year. As bittersweet as it will be to say goodbye, at least the series will be able to go out on its own terms with a planned, fitting ending.
While the past three seasons of The Umbrella Academy each contained 10 total episodes, the final season has been confirmed to only contain six episodes. That's a decent-sized drop from the previous season orders, but the creator surely chose the episode count that was necessary to wrap up this story for each of the beloved characters. We might have fewer episodes to watch this time around, but there's no doubt season 4 will pack the same punch as all of the other seasons.
Even though filming on the fourth and final season has been wrapped since May of last year, Netflix seemingly held the release of the final run until well after the actors' and writers' strikes to ensure that it could have its proper moment. In February 2024, Netflix confirmed its release in 2024 without further providing a release window, but we can't imagine the wait will be much longer now. A summer release could be in the cards, though a spring release would likely be the preference of fans.
