Tom Hopper who plays Luther a.k.a. Spaceboy in the series said this in an interview with Collider:
“I think it’s a great setup for Season 3. I thought that the show really found a groove. I think what was so great about Season 2 is that we’d set up the world in Season 1, and I really feel that Season 1 was almost like a setup for the rest of the show. You’re not trying to figure out what this world is anymore, you know who these characters are, you know where they’re at in their lives. And, then we can really get things going. And I think towards the end of Season 2, you really start to just see what the show is, and it’s a great setup for what’s going to happen in [Season] 3.”
The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will see the return of star Elliot Page, David Castañeda, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, Ritu Arya, and Aidan Gallagher. The series is developed for Netflix by Blackman, who serves as the showrunner on the series. The Umbrella Academy Season 3 will premiere on Netflix in 2022 and you can check out the special video by going to Netflix.com/UmbrellaAcademy under “Trailers and More.”
