The show has been renewed for a fourth and final season

Fans have been reacting to the news that The Umbrella Academy will be finishing after its next season.

Since launching on Netflix in 2019, the superhero series has built up a devoted and loyal fanbase and is one of the streaming services most popular shows.

But on Thursday, Netflix announced the show had been renewed for a fourth and final season.

Showrunner Steve Blackman said in a statement: “I’m so excited that the incredibly loyal fans of The Umbrella Academy will be able to experience the fitting end to the Hargreeves siblings’ journey we began five years ago.

“But before we get to that conclusion, we’ve got an amazing story ahead for season four, one that will have fans on the edge of their seats until the final minutes.”

Many fans were left caught in two minds as to how to react to the news – reacting with excitement that the show will be returning for another series, but upset to hear it will be the final one.

One person wrote: “Only one more season of the Umbrella Academy and then it’s ending wtf'”

Another tweeted: “The Umbrella Academy is ending I CAN’T”

And a third said they were “absolutely gutted” that The Umbrella Academy is ending, and said that “Netflix feels like a sinking ship at this point.”

Executive producers set to return for season four alongside Blackman include Jesse McKeown, who will also serve as co-showrunner, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Scott Stuber and Beau Bauman; and co-executive producers Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá.
