Netflix has added five new faces, and one familiar one, for the upcoming third season of The Umbrella Academy.
The series, which centers on seven children, who were adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, who work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death, will bring back Justin Min.
Justin‘s Ben had previously died in the second season, but will be returning for the new season, according to Variety.
However, Ben aka Sparrow No. 2, is not the Ben audiences remember. This Ben is “a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy body with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant, Ben is determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs.”
A new piece of VFX will also be part of the show, and it’s called the “Existential Dread-Inducing Psykronium Cube” aka, Sparrow No. 7 or Christopher. It is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin that can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. But among the family, he acts as a consulted oracle, hands out incredible advice, and serves as the family mediator. To the Sparrows he is trustworthy and loyal, but like all of them he is a force with which to be reckoned.
Five new stars will join the series, which also stars Elliot Page, Aidan Gallagher, Robert Sheehan, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Ritu Arya, Adam Godley, and Colm Feore.
