Things are far from official, but looking back on the schedules for everything else The Umbrella Academy Season 3 UK DVD and Blu-ray release date should be around June/July 2024. This will be a good two years after it first arrived on Netflix on the 22nd June 2022, so there’s clearly a fairly lengthy wait before it comes out.

However, the good news for anyone that has only seen the first season is that Season 2 has just had its DVD and Blu-ray release, so you can console yourself with ten episodes of pure genius in the meantime. It hit the shelves in the UK on the 27th June 2022, so around a week prior to writing this.

Review

Every episode of The Umbrella Academy is a work of perfection, but Season 3 just about pips it to the best yet post. It’s got even more character development, which is incredible seeing as this is the third outing for them all, and the story works brilliantly as a continuation from the epic ending of Season 2.

As with the entire series, the visuals are amazing with some incredibly striking sets, costumes and special effects. However, its the cinematography that allows all of this to shine through as well as it does.

Even when you’ve seen all of the episodes (back to back in our case) you’ll still want to see more. To go back and watch the best bits again and to try to see if you’ve missed something important about Reg, the timelines and the future of the show.

What this means is that both the DVD and Blu-ray are going to have a lot of re-watch potential, especially with the exciting prospect of Season 4 on the cards. The 3rd season for The Umbrella Academy is up there with Stranger Things as one of the best sci-fi shows of the years and helps to confirm Netflix as the outright leader of the genre at the moment.

DVD and Blu-ray review: 5/5
