The Umbrella Academy has been renewed for its fourth and final season by Netflix, and the final episodes will feature three faces familiar to television viewers. Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), and David Cross (Arrested Development) are joining Elliot Page, Tom Hopper, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Aidan Gallagher, Justin H. Min, Ritu Arya, and Colm Feore on the series.
The offbeat superhero series follows the adopted super-powered children of Sir Reginald Hargreeves. As adults, they have joined forces on several adventures. Season four will find them facing a new timeline and world following the events of the third season finale.
