What is The Umbrella Academy about?
The show is a unique superhero action, drama and science fiction that has a group of enhanced people at its midst. It all started on October 1, 1989, when 43 women gave birth simultaneously at noon when none of them were pregnant a few seconds earlier.
A billionaire called Sir Reginald Hargreeves finds and adopts seven of these forty-three kids and helps train them and forge them into a team in his mansion. He gives these kids numbers rather than names, it is later when their sort-of robotic mother, Grace names them all, Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Ben, and Vanya, except Five who disappeared.
While the other six display their powers and train with them to later use the powers to fight crime, Reginald forbids Vanya to use her powers, playing it off as if Vanya has no power.
Season One takes us to the journey of these siblings reuniting after the death of their father. All messed up in their own way, they all have different paths they have chosen and are hence living that life.
Luther is part Ape and was sent to moon by Hargeeves and has been there for a while, Allison is an actress, Vanya is a Violinist and has written a book about the Umbrella Academy in the past, Diego is a Vigilante, Five disappeared 16 years ago and Klaus is a drug addict, who talks to a deceased Ben.
Five returns and informs the group that an apocalypse is inevitable and they need to stop it. The team works towards avoiding the disaster and finding out what causes it and why. They learn the truth and the truth is too close to home and personal.
Season two follows these crazy siblings into their time travel, the whole group travels through time and reaches early 1960s Dallas. This season is their different paths that they have taken after the incident and then later finally coming together to fight a very powerful enemy.
After all these adventures, the group finally reach their own timeline where they came from, but things aren’t the same as the place they once called home is no longer “the Umbrella Academy” but “the Sparrow Academy”, with different kids with different powers.

Season 3 of the show as mentioned above would entail traveling back in time but a completely new timeline. Ben is alive and is part of the Sparrow academy. They are the kids that Reginald has adopted in this timeline. The team figuring out what happened and how and how to reverse that. The sparrow Academy has super powered individuals who are also faced.
