The Sparrow Academy: Who are they in The Umbrella Academy?

The Umbrella Academy Season 2 ended wit the surprise appearance of The Sparrow Academy. Who are they exactly and what does this mean for Season 3?

Heads up! Spoilers are on the way for those of you who have not watched The Umbrella Academy Season 2. We’re about to discuss The Sparrow Academy so if you don’t want spoilers you should turn away now.

In the final few moments of the season finale. The team manage to get back to their own time and they even managed to stop the apocalypse as well.

However, their trip to the past did create some significant changes for their present. Mainly, The Sparrow Academy.

Rather than forming The Umbrella Academy, Sir Reginald Hargreaves decided to form The Sparrow Academy. They are kids who were also born on the same day as Luther, Klaus, Allison, Ben, Diago, and Number 5. Only Sir Reginald believe are better.

Just like The Umbrella Academy there are seven of them. Ben, who is the only member of The Umbrella Academy who seems to have made it to The Sparrow Academy, is Number One in this alternative timeline.

The other six consist of five humans and a floating cube.

And that is pretty much all the information available to us right now. There is not much point in jumping ahead of the series and reading the comics by Gerard Way. The Sparrow Academy are part of a future installment not yet released.

Which means we do not really know what it means for The Umbrella Academy Season 3 yet. We can certainly guess, but there is nothing concrete.

So, for now, we will have to make do and go with our best guess/theory while we wait for either the latest comic to be released or for the third season of the Netflix Original to be released.
