    "The Umbrella Academy" Unveiled Who Will Play The Sparrows In Season 3, And It's Going To Be So Good

    There's a new Number Five in town...

    Let's cut right to it: The Umbrella Academy Season 3 is already gearing up for production, and honestly, I cannot wait for filming to begin.

    Hey #TheUmbrellaAcademy fans, @SteveBlackmanTV has something he wants to show you...

    When we last left the Hargreeves, they had just been transported back to present day, but things looked A LOT different.

    Namely, Reginald Hargreeves and Ben are now alive and they are part of the Sparrow Academy — the Umbrella Academy apparently doesn't exist anymore.

    With us being dropped into a completely different reality for Season 3, there are bound to be a lot of new characters, and Netflix has just announced who will be joining Ben as members of the Sparrow Academy.

    Here are all the new cast members that will make up The Sparrows:

    First, we've got Justin Cornwell, who will play Marcus, aka Sparrow #1. Justin is best known for his work in Netflix's Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.

    Netflix describes Marcus as someone who is "charming, virtuous, and demanding." He's the one who keeps the family together and is "calculated but compassionate" and is "as smart as he is strong."

    While Justin H. Min has been with the show as Ben since Season 1, this will be a major season for him. He'll be playing Ben as Sparrow #2.

    And Justin even had the perfect response to being the new Number 2:

    Next up is Britne Oldford, who will play Fei, aka Sparrow #3. Britne has previously appeared on The Flash, AHS: Asylum, Hunters, The Path, and more.

    Fei is described as someone who would rather be alone, but she wishes she "had a friend." Fei is super smart and is always willing to work things out until the job is done.

    Jake Epstein will be playing Alphonso, aka Sparrow #4. Jake has appeared on Designated Survivor, Suits, Degrassi: The Next Generation, and he also starred in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical on Broadway.

    Netflix describes Alphonso as someone with a "biting sense of humor" and he has endured a lot from "years of crime fighting."

    Genesis Rodriguez will appear as Sloane, aka Sparrow #5. Genesis has starred in numerous telenovelas as well as voiced characters on She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and Big Hero 6: The Series.

    Next, Cazzie David is playing Jayme, aka Sparrow #6. Cazzie is best known for her bestselling book No One Asked for This, and she also created and starred in the miniseries Eighty-Sixed.

    And finally, rounding out the Sparrow Academy is Dread-Inducing Psykronium Cube as Christopher, aka Sparrow #7.

    @UmbrellaAcad @netflix EXISTENTIAL DREAD INDUCING PSYKRONIUM CUBE (Newcomer) will play CHRISTOPHER, a telekinetic cube that can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear without so much of a warning. The trustworthy, loyal oracle of the Sparrows is treated as just another sibling.

    Twitter: @NXOnNetflix

    Christopher is a "telekinetic cube of unknown origin." In terms of his powers, he can turn a room freezing cold and induce "paralyzing fear." He's basically seen as a mentor to the other Sparrows and is incredibly trustworthy.

    There you have it! We now know the seven members who will make up the Sparrow Academy and who, I'm sure, will clash with our beloved Umbrella Academy.

    Basically, I am so excited for this new season and I cannot wait to see what these characters get up to.
