The Umbrella Academy fans – assemble, because we can finally meet The Sparrow Academy cast set to cause trouble for our heroes in season 3.
With the team returning from 1960s Dallas in tact, the Hargreeves kids were dealt a shock at the end of season two to discover their home was no longer their home.
Nope, they’d created a new timeline with a completely different academy of kids… who did not look pleased to see them.
After that hell of a cliffhanger, it’s not going to be easy for them to figure out what to do next.
So who is joining Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, Adam Godley, and Colm Feore in the new episodes?
Meet the new castmembers:
Justin Cornwell: Marcus (Sparrow #1)
A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and demanding, Marcus keeps the family together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong.
Marcus is disciplined, rational and in control. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.
Basically, he’s everything Luther, Umbrella #1, strives to be, which should make for some awkward moments now they come face to face.
Justin has previously appeared in Netflix Christmas musical Jingle Jangle, and crime thriller I Am The Night, based on the Black Dahlia murders.
Justin Min: Ben (Sparrow #2)
After Ben’s tragic death at the end of season two, fans were shocked to discover this brand new version of the character we loved returning in this alternate universe.
Now he’s been given an upgrade, and Justin joked to castmate David (who plays Umbrella #2 Diego): ‘I’m number two now.’
Wonder how the two character will be getting on in the series?
This is not the sweet Ben we know and love. 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.
Britne Oldford: Fei (Sparrow #3)
Fei sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you.
But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out.
But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done.
Jake Epstein: Alphonso (Sparrow #4)
Years of crime fighting have left his face and body with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of humour.
The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face, is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.
Jake has previously appeared on Designated Survivor and Suits.
Genesis Rodriguez: Sloane (Sparrow #5)
Sloane is a romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing.
But obligations to her family keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line.
But Sloane has plans… and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.
Genesis has previously appeared in The Fugitive, and Big Hero 6.
Cazzie David: Jayme (Sparrow #6)
Jayme is a loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl.
Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows.
Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.
Existential Dread Inducing Psyckronium Cube: Christopher (Sparrow #7)
Christopher is a telekinetic cube of unknown origin. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear.
He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator.
Trustworthy, loyal, and is treated by the Sparrows like any other sibling, Christopher is a force to be reckoned with.
We’re gonna be honest – VERY confused about this one!
The Umbrella Academy is available now on Netflix.
